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.
