Breeds will have their general characterstics, but you can NEVER say that a certain breed is better for a beginner. Rather, an older, experienced, well-trained, non-spooky horse is going to be good for a beginner -- with the breed essentially irrelevant. The personality and training of the horse is what matters.
It is good to make sure you have someone knowledgable to help you select a horse that is going to be suitable for a beginner like yourself.
Also, what are you going to have as a buddy for this horse? Horses are not solitary animals and they generally will be more comfortable with either another horse in their "herd" or at least a goat or some other companion animal.

What exactly do you mean by this? How much does a TB eat???
That completely depends on the horse. Some are easy-keepers and don't need much. Others are hard to keep weight on, and need special feed supplements. Again, TBs will generally be high-strung and harder to keep weight on, but that is certainly just a generality and not the truth for each horse.
