Any horse that has been turned out for that long And brought in to ride has the likelihood of bucking. You need to start again from the ground, saddle him, but him up, work him around in the round pen. Soften him up, work on flexing. Get him soft in the face again so you can pull him up if he decides to buck. Maybe have your dad lead you around on his back to get him used to carrying weight again. Until you get this done, don't sell him as a champion barrel horse, that's asking for trouble, sell him as a once broken horse, in need of a refresher.
not nesecarely we have been ground working him my dad put the saddle on him and well of course the saddle pad too then tied him up for a hour or two then when that was over tiened the girth up and lunged him then got on him he nuged himto go foward that's when he started bucking.

And that's what im asking for right know is for some help with what to do with him im not concerned on the price right now

Yes there is lots of ground work you could do to get the horse to be more respectful, some horses need to be worked regularly or they become disrespectful by bucking/biting/rearing/etc.....so if the horse was left on pasture for a length of time he needs a good tuning up.

Thank you that what I want to hear

$4500 whata steal...

Doesn't matter what he did in the past.. (champion barrel racer can mean anything from 4-h to NFR quality- And I am betting it is far from the latter).. You now have a horse that has sat way to long, and has started bucking people off..And admittedly scares you..And needs a trainer.. The best thing you can do is price him accordingly (far less than that dillusional price) and market him to someone who maybe can bring him back to his former glory..

Im still trying to work out how he could go from champion to green..

Well when you work that horse up, tire the son if gun first. Get him good and tired before anyone steps on him. Lunge him everyday with a saddle. Get a couple old tires and a three foot rope, run that rope between your saddle fork and tie the tires on both ends. That way, he can get used to having weight on his back again the the feel of a riders legs. Then work him every day like that, lunging, ground driving. Wear the horse out first, he needs it.

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~
