Hi, welcome to the forum!
I am going to assume that by low level dressage you mean Level 1-2. For that level most any breed will suit as long as it satisfies your other requirements, here in Texas horses are going cheap cheap cheap. Particularly TB's. You can pick up a TB off the track that has had some schooling and is ready to go out and compete in Intro/Level 1 for under $2000 but they would require ongoing training, not sure if that is something you are interested in.
For something that is trained already, level 2 and above WB's are going for $10,000 and up. Having said that I was offered a TB/WB cross that had competed at level 2 for free last year, it just depends on the timing!
I would talk to as many people in your area as you can, word of mouth is the best way to find horses.
