Pretty much what themacpack said. I got this guy threw New Vocations a Thoroughbred/Standardbred rescue and they have various locations. I had to be approved to adopt first but they made the process pleasant and swift. Then it was just a matter of waiting.
I know some people up in Aiken, SC where there is a big race track. They get them right from the breeder or right off the track if the horses are not competitive.
I'm not sure where you would find a QH other then an a rescue that deals with all breeds or an auction. My friend got a very nice appie mare from Camelot Auctions when it was still functioning.
