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.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
