There are a lot of sites, including our own forum, where you can list your horse for sale. Start by looking at other horses for sale and seeing how those ads attract you. I would have some excellent conformation shots of him, and a good video. Be sure that the video has a very good rider that will show him in the best light because prospective buyers will pick apart your photos and video.
List his accomplishments and skills as well as those of his parents. Avoid words like "I think he ....." and "He should be good at ..." .
Buyers want to know what he has done. Temperament is important. If he is good for a beginner, that is important to mention but don't exaggerate - you don't want someone getting hurt. Mention that as a 4 year old he had professional training in WP even though you only trail rode him.
Get some pictures and a video if possible on the forum and let our members see how the ad looks.
BTW, be clear about his price and make your location known.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
