He may be free but you'll probably be paying for training because if he was already under saddle (as in not a racing saddle) they would have a video up. He is a pretty horse, though.
Chevy- Go to horseadoptions.com and look at all the Tbreds or Sbreds you can get for free. It's not too uncommon.
I don't think he's been raced, but that will be something I will need to ask the owner. I wouldn't start riding until he is at least 3 or 4, just lots of groundwork training up until then. When it is time to ride, I would see how he is. If he were to need a professional trainer, we would do that for a couple months then.
Also, the reason I am interested, is that I might be moving my horse to a two acre property where there are no other horses. I would be looking for a companion horse as it is, and I would like to get into cross country and jumping competitively in the future, and I have heard many tbs to excel at those disciplines
