OP, that is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about. It's better to be cautious and spend a longer time finding the right horse rather than just jumping in and realizing that the water is 30 feet deep and filled with sharks.
Cori, I hadn't even thought about rescues, that would probably be a very good place to start. A member here (can't remember who for the life of me) just got a horse from a rescue that has some very serious and good training on him. Because of the market, the rescues end up with so much more than just junk horses. There are some very nice, very well trained horses going to them simply because there isn't anywhere else for them to go.
And, OP, if you are ever just a bit curious about a horse you are looking to buy, you can always post here with pictures/video and a description and get some more experienced eyes on things.
