4-Her Looking for a Barrel Horse/Pony in Indiana

I have two miniature horses and really don't want to lease a contesting horse *again* this year for 4-H. I am looking for an affordable horse or pony. I am on a budget because I will be paying for this horse myself. I've been looking all over the Internet and haven't really found anything. The fair is in June and practices start in April. I thought I'd post on here and see if I came up with anything. PM me if you want more details on my experience with horses and so on. Thank you!

I'm probably 30-40 minutes NorthEast of Indianapolis. If you need more info about what I'm looking for, I'd be happy to tell you more. Thanks so much for any help!

OK, I'm looking for a horse or pony. I'm a petite person so can ride a pony easily and did so last summer. Would actually prefer a pony due to the fact that I have two (tall) miniature horses who will be pastured with him/her. I also prefer a pony because it's less to feed and won't do as much damage to the ground. My mom will feel better about the size of a pony, as well ;) However, getting a pony isn't a must, I just think it would be nice. The right horse would definitely be considered. I want it to be trained or at least started in contesting events. I'm not super competitive, only would do a few shows a year. The horse doesn't have to be registered or anything like that. Color doesn't matter either. Breed isn't super important but I prefer a Quarter Horse/Pony, Paint, Appy, or POA. It doesn't have to be trained for anything but contesting but I do enjoy showing in other things at 4-H as well as contesting so if he/she would happen to be trained in other events, that would be wonderful as well! I need something for no more than $1,500 and that would be really, really stretching it, especially since I really need to be able to buy a cheap trailer as well. Honestly, if I could find something for about $750 that would be great. But I'm open to something more pricey. I know barrel horses/ponies aren't usually cheap! If anyone has a horse or pony who fits this description or knows of one, please let me know ASAP! You can post it here or PM me. Thank you!

Anyone have or know of anything? 4-H is right around the corner and I'm needing a pony I can contest with. Also, yes, I am a 4-Her and of course I don't want anything uncontrollable, obviously, but I do have horse experience so what I'm saying is it doesn't have to be a "children's, grandma-safe, horse".
