Buddy needs a job!

This teenaged bay Arabian gelding is in rehabilitation. Watch his progress as he goes through eye surgery, gains weight and returns to his original beauty!

Ok, I need some help with Buddy. I haven't advertised him alot (actually just one post on Craigslist a month or so ago), mostly because I want to be sure he is going to be a good fit for any adoptive home that wants him.

My general consensus is that he is a very hot, hyper type of Arabian. When around my mare, Dandy, he completely loses his brain and cannot pay attention to anyone on the ground or on his back.

When I have taken him for a ride in the mountains (far away from Dandy), he was EXCELLENT. However, when I have taken him to drill (with Dandy), he has usually been pretty much hard to handle and HOT HOT HOT.

I am considering taking him to drill this weekend since it's an unofficial practice due to it being Easter. Since it's unofficial, I'll leave Dandy at home and see if that helps.

I really think that what Buddy needs is lots of time and lots of miles to get him back in the swing of things. I think he would be an excellent amateur endurance horse as he seemed to love trotting through the trails and certainly never seemed tired.

Since I don't really have alot of time right now to be putting miles on him (I'm focusing on getting Teddie and Class going), should I go ahead and advertise Buddy anyways, stating he needs a EXPERIENCED rider who is ok with the classic Arabian personality? Or should I try to lease him out? Or maybe find someone who wants to come out and ride?

What should I do? :) Buddy needs a job!

I don't know much about the forum, but there is an Arab horse forum at http://www.ablackhorse.com/ that seems to be extremely active. If they permit the posting of rescues, that seems to be an ideal place to tell Buddy's story and find the right person for him who has Arab experience and enjoys a spirited ride.
