trail horse for beginner

I am die hard TWH.But my GF wants to get into ACTHA with me and we are looking for a good older bomb proof horse.I put her on my walker and she hates him.He parks out every time he stops and that freaks her out a little but she said he isnt like riding a real horse blah blah so I need to be looking into "real" horse breeds apparently.I need a larger horse .She is larger her self.She loves appys but from what I hear they are a bit hot.I need a dead horse for her.She is currently taking lessons and we are hoping to get her built up more but I need a very well broke horse.Now I know all breeds can be well broke but to start my search im wanting to get you opinion on larger breeds that do well on trails.

I have an appy and she is the quietest horse. I put complete beginners on her and she packs them around. If I were you I wouldn't search a specific breed, but search for one that is advertised as a beginner horse and then go check it out.

Agree with this ^^^^, look for a good beginner broke horse regardless of size (unless it's a 10 hh pony) or breed.

Horse not breed. Every breed can have what you are looking for. Good luck in your search!

Any of the stock breeds (QH, Paint, Appy) are good choices - as a general statement. On another hand, my riding partner has been riding a 16h OTTB for the past 9 years and, if you didn't know better, you would believe that he is a ranch horse - more calm then most of the horses I ride. Also my wife had a 12 year old Arab that was 100% beginner/child safe.

So, as it has been said, it is the horse not the breed but if I was looking through the ads, I would gravitate towards the stock breeds and avoid TB or Arabs.
