Cool I'm looking for the perfect horse

Ok I thought i'd just throw this out there...I am looking for the 'perfect' horse for me. I recently found a barn that is, literally, right around the corner from my house. The horses are WELL taken care of, big box stalls with bedding, fans for hot days, private pastures. There's a small riding arena and trails right down the road. So I feel like I'm in a position to have a horse again, used to have one years ago. What I'm looking for is a stocky type horse like a paint, quarter horse, etc...one that is well trained so that I can just RIDE and not have to have a training session everytime I get on. I will be riding english so that would be the best if the horse had been trained in english. I prefer mare's. And it would have to be a really reasonable price and/or the person would be willing to accept payments.

I have a weanling for sale. Not registered yet but can be. She is 8 months old. I am only asking a $100.00 for her. I want to see her go to a good home. She is coming along nicely. She is halter broke and leading alright. I mostly don't have enough time to put into her like I want to. She would be a registered breeding stock paint like her dam. Here is some pics of her. The first one was at 2 days old. The next 3 she was 2 months old. I will have to take some recent pics of her. I have 2 more pics. These pics are from a month ago. She was 7 months here. The other horses in the pics are her dam the solid black mare and her full sister black and white filly. The other foal is Caddo.

Where do you live and do you have any specific price range. I can look on a few search engines I love looking for horses.

http://www.horsetopia.com/for-sale/classifieds/ad427834 < Here's a nice one. I know she's a national show horse but she has color, is good tempered, does all disciplines and possibly comes with a breeding. Just a suggestion.

I looked at that one actually =) She's awefully perdy and well trained, but on the other coast from me. I'd like to find something that is for sale within easy driving range from me so that I could go and ride maybe a couple times before I commit. My zip code is 34207

I like the look of this one too! She's an agile quick little thing, but well educated and seems trustworthy and versatile.

This mare is awesome! If you don't buy her, I will move to the USA and buy her. A nice quiet hunter who does it all. Still young and a nice tall QH.

This one seems like a nice little gelding. Not the best I've seen, but he seems pretty versatile.

This boy is gorgeous. If you can deal with him being young, than he would be an awesome show horse.

LOL! In August, my budget was under $1K. By October, it was between $2000 - $2500. Now, I've just bumped it up to $5K!! As you get picker about what you want, your budget will just keep rising. Good luck!
