As your first horse, I'm going to tell you that you should pass this horse up. Riding a well trained horse doesn't mean you won't have be challenged; you still have lots of things to learn.

You say that the 8 year old girl who rode this horse outgrew him and moved on to a more green horse? That screams problem to me right there. Sounds like this family doesn't know what they are talking about or doing, so I would be very leery of what they say about this horse. I would pass.

I would say go for it. Sometimes a bond is much better than any kind of training. Maybe he bucked because you are new to him. I have a horse that would do anything for me, but put a different person on him and you'd swear he was insane. Also, I'm 14 and I'd pick to have my challenging horses over those dead-broke lesson ponies anyday. Call me crazy, but it is what it is.

I understand that there are a lot of really aggressive young riders. However, if this horse is still that green.. how did this girl outgrow him and move on to a greener horse? Sounds like they don't know how to really teach a horse. This girl has probably been clinging to the horses back. I would be hesitant because it sounds like the parents/people selling don't know all that much about horses/riding/training. I wouldn't trust what they tell you, because it sounds like they are lacking a lot of knowledge.
