I'm with smrobs. Something well-started green broke. Or broke horse left in pasture for number of years (bringing it back). I think OTTB re-training is not for everyone (definitely not my cup of tea), although some people do it and love it. Rescues sometime can come with mental issues, which will never be fixed.

What do you hope to do with this horse? Just get the horse riding or is there a specific sport that you want to do?

Then healthy OTTB would be your best bet.

Yes, sometimes rescue horses come with "baggage", but so do OTTB. Or any horse for that matter. Rescue is nice because if the horse doesn't work out for you the rescue (in most cases) take the horse back. As a matter of fact, it's usually in the contract that if can no longer keep the horse to return it to the rescue.
And OP a lot of rescue have transportation so if you find a horse you love at a rescue that's not near you the rescue usually has volunteers who transport horses to their new homes. :)

Really? Thank you for telling me! All the rescues around here only have yearlings for sale, so this really opens up the search area!

Your welcome! I think a good start would be finding rescues online and emailing them-let them know where you are and what you are looking for and if they are willing to transport. They know their horses so if they have one they think would be suited to event they will know!
And as far as the tax write off goes, make sure they are non-profit. I am completely naive with how your taxes are in Canada, so I would ask the rescue just to be sure that you c an use the "donation" as a write off.
