Looking for a Tall, Eventer/Jumper

I am a teenage rider, looking for a horse that I can event or jump. We are not looking for a high initial price, rather a lower good-deal so we can spoil and afford some shows and live a luxorious life. This is what I am looking for:
Breed: Warmblood, TB, or anything else that can juump!
Height: taller than or equal to 16.3(17.3+ is fine as well)
Age: Younger than 15, greater than 3 years
Jumping ability or potential to do 3'+. (probably 3'6 to 4'+)
Dressage potential or ability
Not too spooky
Let me know if you have a horse that matches!

Why must the horse be over 16.3? You'll have an easier time finding your match if you are willing to look at shorter horses (like 16h, which should be plenty tall enough). Just curious ;)

(I personally prefer 13.2-14.2 but I"m short haha)

I prefer over 16.3 because I am 5'10, and most of that is my legs. :) :P

Well I still think if you opt for anything 16h and bigger you'll have more options ;) My 5'10" very leggy friend looked great on my 16h TB (even looked fine on my 14h bulky mare) But, good luck! :) Hope you find the perfect horse and show us lots of photos :)

A 16hh horse with a deep heartgirth and some substance would take up a lot of that leg. But I hope that you find what you're looking for!
