    He is only sore/ouchy after a good amount of riding over like 4 days, I could get on him and ride 30 mins to an hr every other day or so and his feet/legs would be fine. Although lunging going to the right he limps just when he trots though.

    Curious - if he doesn't have ringbone, what is the reason you all price him under $1000?

    Because he's just an average horse, conformation has some issues....he has some scary front pasterns. He's your typical hack around on horse and those are a dime a dozen.

    16yrs (still got time left but most likely won't be able to do anything but trail rides and novice showing, gaming or Eventing, never going to go far or do much IMO)
    Unregistered (I'm assuming as it was not mentioned)
    Just got back from the trainers (says enough in its self)
    Just started leg cues and rollbacks at 16 (Makes me question his training, leg cues are my preference so this may be a case of JMO)
    Won't cross water without a fight (isn't to bad but still an issue)
    Won't load without a fight (now that's a problem)
    Takes advantage of its rider (A spunky horse is fine but I don't want one second guessing me every step of the ride)
    Needs to be corrected (from the sounds of it quite a bit of resistance from the horse. I don't want to be correcting constantly especially in a show or something similiar)
    How many times has he been shown (just at the fair? Does that mean just the once? What did he place? How did he do?)
    He is a bit shabby? (What does that mean?)
    He will obviously never be a beginners horse and will always be a challenge. He will continue to need training. There are soooo many horses out there just like this one being given away for free or dumped in the woods. It is a buyers market right now...

    Im sure he is a great horse and might find the perfect owner who would pay for him but O personally would not pay anything over $700 and that's if there is NO ringbone.

    I only said what I said about his water crossing to point out that you may want to work on your description of him. Seeing the pictures of him, he looks like a pretty nice horse. Don't talk bad about him if you want to sell him. If he is lame, then that is an issue. Otherwise, he seems like a pretty nice horse. He probably just needs riding a little bit.

    What is wrong with his front pasterns if I may ask?
    He is a very sweet loving horse, but he is too much for me. If I do decide to sell him I will work on the wording. It is honestly all up in the air right now.

    It depends on where on the leg the damage is, "high ringbone" is less severe than "low ringbone". Here's a decent article if you are interested
