You should really think of getting a rescue horse not when you've ridden x amount of horses, but when you've trained, or helped train at least one. Two would be even better, three plus would be ideal. 150 dollars a month is not enough to support a rescue horse. That's about two weeks worth of good lessons, and maybe a week at a decent, reputable trainer.
I agree with others and say save up that 200-300 dollars you would be getting (have your parents do it for you if they don't trust you with it) and pretty soon you'll have enough for a nice ready-to-ride horse.
