Water issues... please help

We are from upstate Ny with cold winter months. We have a dug well 8-9 foot depth 300-350 yards from horse barn. This was set up 30+ years ago by original owner. Water line is a 3/4" plastic black pipe. We installed a frost free faucet in the work room area. Planning on using this during the winter months. Due to the distance that we have to push or pull water and the freezing temperatures, we are at a loss on what to use for a water pump. We have tried a submersible style pump but again due to the distance this failed. Using a pump and pressure tank set up will freeze in the barn unless we remodel this room. And due to the costs we would like to avoid this if possible. Is there any style pumps we could use? Or any other suggestions??? Thank you for any help.

Submersible pumps comes in different sizes that can provide you with different amounts of head. Have you shopped around (at places other than the local home store) to see if there is a model that can accommodate your needs?

Is this not the same water supply you use for your house?

Even if it is not, can you pipe it to the house, provide a pressure tank there and then run it back out into the barn?
