Okay...I personally think that for any first time owner, the best thing to do is start of by getting into a lesson program. Try a lease on a horse. You'll get a better understanding about what being responsible for a horse is all about.
If your absolutely, without a doubt ready for ownership...then start looking for a good reliable mount. Nowadays you can find them everywhere for a great price.
I, do and always will, think that Qhs are incredible first horses. They're versatile and stereotypically even tempered. I'd steer clear of some of the hotter breeds. (TBs,arabs,etc)
You can go through aqha.com or dreamhorse.com to try and find a suitable mount in your area for your price range. But I really do suggest finding a trainer to help you make a decision on potential horses.
