Without knowing the actual weight or experience or anything about this poster, it is difficult to advise.
Pulling the info from all the threads together, you have been looking at lots of horses over a number of years, but have turned them all down.
You are looking at Arabs, from a weedy 2 year old, to a rescue, to a 14 year old broodmare with a temperament issue.
Or possibly a cross bred 18 hours away
Or any of the horses here.
My honest opinion..
Really take stock of who you are, your size, weight, ability, what you want to do with a horse, your facilities for keeping one, then search for a horse to fill all those needs close to home.
Don't get hung up on breeds, especially if you haven't actually handled one of that breed extensively.
I fell in love with Haflingers, they are gorgeous, and their right ups are awesome, but I HATE riding them I found, and they are not all easy to live with. So despite having bought several, and some from huge distances, I let them go, because deep in my heart I was not happy.
I bought an Appy, who was actually just what I needed at the time, and in 3 years he taught me a huge amount and took me to a different place. Now my heart is firmly owned by my Arabs, I won 2 pure breds and 2 part breds, and strangely enough it was the one breed that I said I would never ever own.
Just saying, look for the right horse, their color and breed are of secondary importance.
