The wording "not the right horse for the owner" and the drastic price drop lead me to believe that the horse is a hassle for the rider, maybe even dangerous. AKA over-horsed. The fact that they want a mid to high level rider speaks to this. His wide range of supposed disciplines is also concerning since he was only born 2002, and combined with the description he is not show ready and requires training. Of course, the person didn't post anything about the specific levels of the horse, so the horse is either green or the person didn't go over their ad carefully. Between the two ads, the discipline list even changes. He is also unregistered, perhaps since he is a cross (I'm not too clear on the whole cross-registry issue). From what is presented, I certainly wouldn't price him at 40k either. It would help a lot if there was a video.
