What I'm seeing in the video is a very green horse who is just kind of going through the paces. She's too fast and strung out for Western Pleasure, yet to slow and unresponsive for reining or cutting and her conformation does not lend well to any speed events such as barrels even if you could get her too move. Definitely not breeding prospect either.
Plus, as the other's said, she does have a few big conformation flaws that would also get in the way of someone being successful in a show or 4H arena.
She is a doll, I love her head, and she has fabulous color. I do see her as a wonderful trail horse and a lovely casual riding horse for someone who just wants to hang out on trails. Unfortunately most people don't want to pay a lot of $$ for a "just for fun" sort of horse.
Horses like her go around here from 200 to maybe 600 if the person were lucky.
But this is only MY opinion....like I said, she's a doll and actually something I would look for as a horse for my daughter who just want a "for fun" horse to ride on trails.
My advice is this, try to work with her over winter if you can. If you can put her in a little training, even better... you might get her collected up for WP by spring if it's done correctly. People are more likely to buy in spring than winter, after the hay crops come out as it's harder to feed horses over winter, especially if you can't use them until spring anyway. So long story short, if she were my horse, I'd put work into her over winter and try again in spring with a slightly lower asking price. I think if she's looking a little more like a WP horse you may have some lower level 4Hrs interested.
