Don't Limit Yourself
My first horse was a gelding who will always have my heart. He tried his hardest for me but never failed to tell me when I was wrong either. I could take him anywhere literally. He was certainly a character and had a sensitive side. He had spirit too but that horse loves me and I him. I have a stronger/different bond with my gelding than my now mare. I can't describe it either. My gelding was my first and I learned everything on him. Our relationship was simple. He was the teacher and I his loyal student. It was never complicated like with my now mare.
With that said my mare is my Heart horse!!! I LOVE that little mare even with all her faults. We have a bond. A pretty close bond but I am her leader not her friend. We have a great working relationship and she will do whatever I ask with very little hesitation. She is very expressive and sensitive too. She loves attention and she comes when called. She loves to be with people though not just me and she really loves kids. When she's nervous or unsure she will stop and ask me what she is suppose to do. She won't spook if I don't let her. She trusts me that much. But she also won't hesitate to let me know if something is wrong. She likes things on her terms and is very impatient (all opposite of my gelding). She is not a teacher. If I don't get it right she will tell me. She's very honest. But I love her for all of this. She is a sweetheart with kids. She's actually a kids lesson horse LoL (but she's very different with kids too)
So don't limit yourself and don't settle either but keep in mind you could completely miss out on your heart horse if you start putting limitations on your search. So look at every horse in your price range and you never know what you'll find.
Just to add I have friends who all mesh and bond with their horses differently. All are very unique bonds. Each bond will always be different. No two are alike. Good luck :)
