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 he may become my Mom's new barrel horse...sigh...too bad you're not closer - we have too many
