I have a Morgan x Paint. He is a great horse, tries his heart out, but he is not a beginner's horse. He is not hot per se, but sensitive and forward, and needs reassurance from his rider or else he will do whatever he thinks he needs to do to feel safe.
As far as Morgans go, I've seen that character a few times now.
I believe the more "old school" (foundation) Morgans are generally a bit less sensitive than the more refined, Saddlebred-looking type. But of course it's all up to the individual.
QH - depending on the work they are bred for - are generally believed to be a pretty calm, level-headed breed. E.g. race or cutting bred QH are a bit more feisty than halter or WP bred ones.
Of course, it's always an individual decision. If you are seriously interested, I would just go take a look at that horse.
