I would also reccommend that you stay off of him for now. I would say the light amound of backing (10-15 mins. at walk) would be more appropriate with him as a two year old, and then starting real training as a three year old.
Amen. The backing thing might be scaring people off, I know that would be true for me.
However, he is a GORGEOUS little fella, and if the market wasn't in such a slump I'm pretty sure you could sell him fairly easily.
Best of luck!!

i cant believe this is coming up again but you did ask so i will tell you what i think. personally if i looked at a horse that had had anything on its back that young i would steer clear. this isnt one of those times when you can defend it because there are so many people out there who would feel the same way and when you are trying to sell something things such as this are highly important.

im not trying to be mean but the first thing i thought of when i read your description

"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"
