    My problem is my mom absolutely loves him, while I absolutely don't.
    I can't get her to see that he really isn't all that amazing and she thinks a four year old is perfect for my begginner sister...which he isn't.

    I really want to trade for an older horse that is much more trained. I don't mind coming up with money for the right horse but the first thing is getting her to part with him.

    That puts you in a tough position. There are a lot of horses out there with not great conformation that can still make a decent riding horse.

    Can he be worked with more to make him more suitable for your sister?

    I know it does. I show Hunters with my show horse and am the only one in the house that has a lot of experience with horses. My mom rode when she was young but hasn't gotten on a horse in over a year. I can't stand riding him. He likes to bash people's feet into the wooden sides of my arena and has actually made me bleed.

    It's not worth it to me to train him so I don't and he doesn't get ridden. We had a trainer come out but the first time he bashed her into the wall she said that she was done with him and gave us our money back. I'm just at a loss and don't know what to do with him.

    Oh, that's is bad. Well, show your mom this thread.

    A horse like that isn't safe for your sister who is a beginner and with no one to spend time to get him out of bad habits. Sell him for what you can and invest in a good well broke horse.

    It's distracting to have the dotted background. The pics are not that big. Also, some of the pics need to be turned. It's just difficult to see the pics.

    Solon is young. I'm not.

    Joshie you can click on full picture and the picture takes up the entire screen almost. That's how I viewed them.

    Honestly, in this area you would not get much for him. He has poor conformation - sickle hocked, ewe necked, and toed-out to name a few - and I don't like his movements at all. He isn't getting up under himself with that back-end at all, which isn't surprising with his conformation. He also needs some more weight.
