Avoid ones that are spooky or unpredictable, make sure the horse turns well and stops when asked. Same rules with any breed.
If you feel comfortable w/t/c in an indoor and outdoor arena you should be fine to try a trail.
I've retrained many OTTB's, some make great trail horses, others not so much. Typically they are a little more reactive and forward than many other breeds
