Don't focus on the breed so much as the individual horse. Many Quarter Horses are good, calm Western horses, as are Paints, though Appys are known to have a bit of an attitude. Of course, this is a generalization, and there are many great beginner horses in every breed. Look for a well-broke schoolmaster to learn on. Good luck!

I have a quarter horse and he's amazing. He has all the "western horse" things I love. So if you're looking for a great western horse get a quarter ;)

Quarter horses are the typical "western" horse, as are paints but crosses are always good. Look for personality above anything else, though (except for soundness or course)

I've seen plenty of thoroughbreds that were just as good as quarter horses at western sports. And my quarter horse/ arabian beat the quarter horses every time he entered the competitions- he's a fast little guy! I really like crosses, and for western sports, quarter horse crosses- appendixes, quarabs. I'd look into those also. BUT. Most of all, keep in mind that it's the individual horse that counts, and how well you work with them- not just the breed! Good luck! :)

I'm a big fan of Andalusians. They can be good at Western, but I hear very good things about QH/Andalusian crosses ("Azteca") as well.

Quarter Horses. Hands down.
