While I agree that there is something off about his back end, I'm more inclined to think it is his rider then a physical problem since you say he is green and young.
He is over the $500-2000 range, but not by much. I am not over the moon for him, so it isn't a huge disappointment. I am just glad I have an extra set of "eyes" here that can help me with these kinds of things, because as I said before I don't have the experience to pick it out myself yet. Video's are such a huge help, I live in a rural area and so far have been able to eliminate several horses that otherwise I would have driven several hundred miles to see.
