I doubt he could still reproduce, you probably would have already found out by now if he could.
There are many "rigs" or horses proud cut around, some are manageable, some less so.
I don't know how you're going to get around not wasting the $900 for training. You very rarely make back any of the money you spend on a horse. You've either got to decide to continue with his training, which I wouldn't recommend, or sell him now for probably not much at all.
Even though he looks nice enough, if he's difficult to handle, and you're going to be honest about the situation, people aren't going to spend much money on him if he requires that much work. It'll be a risk for them. If your trainer is hopeful maybe they want to buy him? Perhaps you could work out a way to settle the rest of the training fee?
I don't know though, horses go for different prices in different places.
