if that horse was everything in the description plus good health it would not be listed for as little as even twice that amount of money...cause everyone and their dog is looking for a horse like that...some red flags were going off in my head when i read that and im no expert either...I would move on...unless you are ready to head into dealing with horsey health issues and nothing drains the bank account faster...

Very bad picture. To me he doesn't look pure TB nor does he look anything like 16 hands, lots wrong, short neck, odd shaped hind legs. Goose rumped. I'd pass

Glad you're going to continue looking OP and leasing is a fantastic option. My first really great horse I owned after leasing her for a few years so something like that could end up working out for you too. Also, and this is just from what I've seen, for a completely beginner safe horse even in a more common breed like a QH or Paint, you're looking at around $3,000 for that kind of training. Anything significantly less than that I'd be suspicious of. Always always always though take a trainer with you to evaluate the horse and then do a pre-purchase vet exam, even if the owner tries to give you the horse's entire life history of vet records. You still need your own vet.
