Good advice already posted, and I'll add that although it's tough to find that 'perfect' horse, as a first/beginner/young child's horse/pony, stay away from anything that needs 'just a little fixing' (i.e. a project). With help from an experienced person, you'll probably want to be patient and find something as close to a lesson horse/pony as possible. Through experience, training, and disposition they tend to be very tolerant, flexible, and forgiving.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
