I really wouldn't be too concerned about the breed just yet. I'd be more concerned about finding a horse with a good temperament. In my experience, you can normally find a nice quiet quarter horse and they tend to be great first horses. I also think warmbloods are lovely quiet horses, but I think they would be a bit too big for your children to handle at the moment. Just be aware, that there are exceptions to every breed and that you could find a nice quiet arab. Also, don't be put off if theres a quiet grade horse. Breed means nothing and you can find some amazing grade horses that do really well in competitions. Best of luck finding that perfect horse. :)

Just remember too, that ponies can have a big attitude :) In my experience, most of the prissy little show ponies have a short man syndrome and always seem to think that they are the biggest, bossiest meanest horse around. But then again, you can find some perfectly behaved ponies too. Horses are just too complicated sometimes.
