    If you can't afford a trainer then I think the question becomes what do you have the experience to train him to do yourself? There are lots of resources online and DVDs which can help you learn how to train him yourself to jump, or do dressage, or barrels, etc. as always working with a trainer is helpful, even if just once in a while to help you improve your form.

    My experience in training is Basic saddle breaking, drive training, and stuff like this. I trained a horse to jump last year with my friend that I no longer speak with, but he was different. And Idk what I want to do anymore riding wise.

    He looks like he would be a great dressage horse, as well as jumping and cross country. He probably wouldnt be very good at barrels and other rodeo events but then again I havnt seen him move. My mum has an OTTB who is better at barrels and cutting than my QH mare who has been bred and trained for it. So my advice would be to try everything you might be interested in, and pick the one that your horse performs best in.

    There's a book called 101 Jumping Exercises, it is an excellent book to help start along a horse with jumping. It has exercises that start from the very beginning (ground poles) to the very "end" (actual jumps). Each exercise focuses on something different. Distances, bending, widths, etc. Even if you never get the ground pole stage at least you'll have different exercises to work him on. And it's very in-depth. It will tell you how you should ride a certain exercise or how your horse should go with illustrations.
