Depending on where the OP is, they could be rare. There arent many here, really. I had to get one brought in from Ky.
He is cheaper because he wont make a 'A' level ss horse, more a hunter, and he's a gelding.
I don't like the bit either, a snaffle should do him wonders. The rider isnt the trainer, at least not the one from heart to heart.
Here is the link to the training farm they refrence. Very well known. If he was a wb......no one would think he's too much. Hart To Hart Stables - American Saddlebred Show Horses
Looks like a great dressage or jumping prospect. Those horses start way more too.
