I agree with the above posters. It takes more than one year of experience to train a horse. Even if your husband is experienced, you still have another horses that needs care. I have been riding for 7 years and there would be no way I would even consider attempting to train a horse, so I'm not sure why you (or anyone for that matter) with only one year of experience would think you are capable of training a horse. 500 for a young, untrained horse, whether registered or not, is overpriced. In today's market people are practically giving away great, well trained horses, and 500 would be a much better investment to the horse you already have. If you're set on getting another horse, though, I would suggest finding an older, well trained, "been there done that" horse. Just because she lowered her price from 1000 to 500 for you does not mean you're getting a good deal.
