What type of activities are you ultimately hoping to do with this horse? (Trail riding, dressage, fox hunting, showing, etc.) That's going to be a big factor in deciding what breed is most suitable. Next, I would recommend enlisting the help of a qualified professional trainer. Someone who knows your riding abilities & goals, and can help you find what you're looking for. You want a horse that's well trained. A novice horse AND novice rider is a bad combination. Usually this means looking for a horse that's at least 5 or 6 years old.
