There are a few ways to get a "next to free" horse, none of which are usually suitable for a beginner or child.
In the long run, it won't really matter if you pay $300 or $3000 for the purchase price, chances are you'll spend a multiple of it on feed, board, vet bills, lessons, training etc.
On a side note, here it is not even all that easy to find a good, sound, well trained horse between ~ 6 and 10 yrs old (let alone one for <$1000). They do exist, but usually if someone has made the effort to start and train the horse well, they don't turn around and sell it right away.
