First time horse owner

I'm looking to buy a horse within the next year or so.
I've rode about 30 + times.
I'm about 5'3-5'5 what do you think would be a good breed of horse for me.
I'm wanting to do Trails and English.
Links would be nice if you find a horse that could be a good fit or something That would be like something I should look for.

Your size is big enough that any size horse might be ok. But , you might appreciate a slightly smaller horse, like an Arab cross or a smaller Morgan. Quarter horses are often really good horses for first time owners as they generealloy have a more settled personality. Generally.

What does your budget look like? We could link to you the perfect horse who's for sale for 10k, but if its not in your budget its a moot point

Anything quiet, well trained and bombproof that would take a good care of the rider. Any horse can do English (although I'd probably go with the horse specifically trained English so you wouln't have to introduce it to the english saddle). Unless you want to show on higher levels I wouldn't worry about breed much.
