Depends on your budget. In my area you won't find a warm blood cross for under 10,000

You mention a bigger horse, as in heavier built? I've seen some pretty stocky TB around. Also would a foundation QH possibly fit the bill for ya?

well.... hampton is 15.2 but i am 12 and 5.7 lol i was looking more along the lines of a skinner built horse that has all four gaits and can be pretty tall so it takes awhile to grow out of. or never grow out of

warmbloods take a lot of educating IMO and my area noone rides a warmblood until it is 3 then they wont start jumping until 5 or 6

There are certainly more breeds around than TB's and WB's!!
TB's can get very big and solid as well, they're not all short and fine.
As said above, a true WB (European lines, not draft x hotblood 'fake' WB) will set you back a pretty penny, and they are generally not recommended for young or inexperienced riders.

Why not look at a draft x?

I know a TB who is 17.2hh and built like a tank, so taller TBs are out there.

I do like Kayty's suggestion of a draft cross. Mine is 16.2hh as a coming-4yo and very athletic. Look up YouTube videos of draft crosses jumping. They can be just as athletic as the TBs and WBs.
