A good friend of ours has several of them that I rode last summer. She has a nice array of temperaments; the one mare is quite laid back and can be grouchy lol But the lady uses her for inexperienced people when they come over. Northwind, her personal mare, has a bit more go to her for a intermidiate or experienced rider. Hagar, the son of Northwind, was the one that I was paid to ride personally had a different personality; he was more offish and sensitive. He would only connect with a few certain people. However, when you do connect with him he is so much fun to ride! And lastly, there is the other gelding Atreyu who is pretty laid back.
All in all, they are a very fun breed :) I don't see why you couldnt find a select one that could fit your needs. As you stated, they are a awesome size and can carry adult or child. Plus, they are extremly easy keepers. The ones I know have a three sided shelter, get no grain and live on rougher hay and do just fine/
