Firstly, get with a trainer. Not only will they be able to help you get ready to compete, but they will probably have an "in" on the kind of horse you need.
Secondly, there is no convincing your parents if they've already said no. Trying to push them, or go around them only breeds trouble. So, my suggestion: have an adult conversation with them about what you want, abd the work your willing to do to get it, in a mature and well manored fashion.
