My Advice

I can understand how you feel. Well you'll have to figure out how much time you have. If you don't have enough time to work with a young horse everyday then you should stick with Will. But if you have a lot of time and are up for a challenge maybe a young horse is right. Don't give up on Will though, you might just need to find what inspires him to do more. I'm personally a fan of young horses, but I fell in love with a 16 y/o gelding who I would take over 5 young horses!!

What I would do

Well, if I was in your shoes, I would find an amazing home for Will where you could see him a lot. That way you can start working with the 3 y/o. Training a horse gives you a great bond and I'm sure you'd be able to understand each other better. You'll be able to be competetive and get somewhere.

Yeah, it's sad that people abuse horses and that horses have to be so expensive. It'll be really cool if you can see Will's next owner love him!! Especially if you get to see him a lot. And then you could even be friends and go on trail rides together!

Yeah, I know how that feels. A trainer I work for just sold two of his horses. Honestly I wouldn't have let the people who bought them near the horses if they were mine. The one lady who bought one had almost no idea how to ride. I recently found out that she fell of and broke her ankle. Maybe having a 30-day trial would be a good thing. They would have some time to decide whether they really want him and you can make sure that they're a fitting home for him. It's hard to pretend to be good for 30 whole days.
