Horse Shopping Help?

So since I havent found the PERFECT horse yet I've still decided to keep looking. My price limit is $2000 and im looking for a good all around horse. Beginner safe. Preferrably a stockier type horse. (paint, appaloosa, quarter horse) I will also consider looking at cross breeds. I would like for the horse to be between the ages 4 or 5 up to 14 since I want to do barrels and such with the horse and I plan on keeping him/her for a long time. Im going to be doing pretty much everything with this horse. From english pleasure to barrels and poles to trails and western pleasure. Prefferably a gelding but I will look at mares as well. :] no more then 85 miles from the zip 12533. Thanks so much :]

well...I've got one that would be perfect but we're too far away. He actually started as a show horse...western pleasure, trail, etc, but ran an 18 sec barrel time in a super horse class without any practice...so he may become my Mom's new barrel horse...sigh...too bad you're not closer - we have too many

Here are a few that I found but I really liked the look of Doc, the last one that Mudypony posted.

Horseville Horse For Sale - CUTE QUARTER MIX - Ad 199709
Horseville Horse For Sale - 11 year app 4 SALE - Ad 183463
View Ad - DreamHorse.com - Dream Horse Classifieds

I really couldn't find anything else but I don't know all the good sites to look at either.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Try the Farm & Garden section on Craigslist.com. I often seen NICE horses in that price range. A lot of people are also open to offers.

Wait! I'll fix it....
