Grade gelding - western broke

Just putting this out there to see if there is any interest, haven't set a price on him yet. My husband has taken over my little gelding and is thinking about putting his own gelding up for sale and getting me a quiet old mule due to my back problems.
Noah is a 8yro grade gelding. He is 14.3 and stocky build, carries my 220lb husband for hours and doesn't tire. Has had some reining training in the past and has a great neck rein and is handy. We have used him for trail riding, we hauled him all over the place last year to local parks and down to Va for a week of camping. He crosses creeks, bridges, fine with traffic and bicycles, rides in front or back or alone. He will let out a little buck when he is fresh in the spring and you ask him to canter, never seen him rear. And he can get prancy on the trail once in a while, then settles in, mostly on short rides when he head home. He trailers well, doesn't load well behind another horse in a slant but will get on first. We were told by the previous owner that she ran barrels with him and penned on him a few times. We might try to take him over to the neighbors to work some cows to see how he handles them. He is shod in front, has not been lame since we have owned him. Had his teeth done in Feb. Cogins from last summer. Hasn't had spring shots yet, but will make sure he gets them before going anywhere.
He is incredibly friendly and would love someone that pays more attention to him. Always waiting at the gait for us in the morning.

He is in Eastern PA

More pics taken this week. And video
. He hadn't been ridden in at least 2 weeks. My husband pulled him out of the pasture, walked down the driveway to our trail and I started taping. I will try to get a longer video with walk/trot/canter. Priced at $1500

We have a lot of horses around here that are unsafe on trail/with traffic and will not ride out alone quietly. (We live in a flat agricultural area, no riding trails, just road riding).
If that horse is advanced beginner/intermediate rider level and decent on trails/traffic, you could get $2500 or better around here.
You can always go down in your asking price, but you can't go up.

We had him priced at $2000 and not one inquiry. He needs an intermediate/advanced rider.

What a cute horse! He looks awesome, especially for some trail rider. He looks mellow and sane! good luck finding him a home! :)
