Because I thought I found something good,
... and you may have. What you got on the forum is a lot of advise but we can't possibly know all the circumstances. This just may be the horse you've been looking for - just go into it with a critical attitude. Forget what he wants for his horse - offer him what you think he's worth but only after you do the proper inspection and called his vet.
If possible I would sell your horse outright but if you need to make a trade, do it with money coming your way not the other way around.
