Not counting purchasing them in Stables, it's possible to steal them or catch wild ones that can be found roaming all over the map. Stealing horses is not really advisable, as you also need to “take care of” any witnesses to prevent getting reported to the law and increasing your bounty.
So if you don't have much money, catching wild horses is the way to go if you're looking for a better steed to accompany you through the game. The regular breeds can be encountered in multiple locations, but there are areas where the spawn rate is higher and so it's easier to come across them.

The White Wild Arabian is, without a doubt, the best horse race of Red Dead Redemption 2 and, as such, it requires some effort to catch.
