Ok, let me get this straight. I read what WSArabians said on the first post, but she only quoted one part. I said "Get a nice QH,Paint, or Morgan".
And yes, breed DOES matter when looking for a firts horse. For example, she shouldn't get a green TB, but maybe an older one would be better. She shouldn't get an Arab as they are usually(not always) hot when they're young. Older ones make good beginner horses. Breed does matter fairly when your also thinking about what she wants to do. For example, a tall TB may not be the best trail horse because on trails with lower branches you would have to duck more. An arab may not be the best on trails because it may be more than a normal horse spooky! And a slow QH may trip over everything!
So I guess I contradicted myself there,lol. Breed matters in the generla circle of things, like not to look for small pony breeds or super tall breeds, but it also matter what the horse is like IN that breed. Maybe a calm Arab or non-pokey QH or a shorter, calmer, older TB.
Good Luck! :)
