Thumbs up 7 year old, 17.2 hand OTTB gelding, super sweet and talented

I purchased Buck back in 2009 off the racetrack, he literally ran his last race the day I picked him up (came in 2nd by the way, won me $20!) and has no health issues related to racing or otherwise.

Since I have owned him I have taken lessons with him with 2 different World Champion dressage riders (1 year with Dianna Rankin and then a summer in Pennsylvania with Lorinda Lende). I have also been riding with a woman who breeds, trains and sells Trakehner event horses (owns a horse named Windfall if anyone is familiar with Trakehners). I have also taken him to several hunter/jumper schooling shows, dressage and eventing competitions, clinics, and hunter paces. He's also good on the trails and comfy to ride. He's super well behaved as shows and will sit around with you all day if he has to. He's also free jumped up to 4.5' and I have done courses up to 3' with him (I'm not the bravest jumper but he loves it!). I have shown him in Training Level tests and he has been schooling on 2nd Level movements.

He clips, loads in the trailer and stands great for the farrier and vet, I can even give shots to him when I don't wanna pop for the vet call.

I am looking to sell him because I have recently graduated from college and I just can't give him the time he deserves and I'm looking to possibly purchase another horse. My inexperience with training is hindering him and I'd really like to see him go to a good home, particularly a competition home.

I would like to get $6,000 for him but all reasonable offers will be considered. Also, I can't afford to transport out of Missouri but there are several reputable transportation companies in the area but that will have to be at buyers expense.
