I second this! Mine was a nightmare. I almost sold her in April... thank god I didn't because she is a dream now!
If your son wants THIS horse and you are financially able to pay for lessons and training, put the horse in training and get some lessons! In fact I would have recommended lessons before even getting your first horse.
If you don't want to go that route, you can always consider leasing the horse out. Maybe put an ad up on your local craigslist for a project lease, maybe a student will be willing to take him on this summer.
Another option is get rid of him and get an older (20's maybe?), slower, healthy and sound quarter horse that has 'been there done that'.
Just my advice :) If I was in your area I would love to help you guys out.
