    I don't see where it's anyone's business why someone is selling a horse. People can buy or sell whatever they want without having to explain why...

    I think what you said here this is the key..."I'm not the one taking lessons. I don't board there. It's none of my business".

    This would be me on the right at age 10 on my first horse Dandy, a Shetland/Quarter cross about 13 hands. My little sister is on the big TWH on the left. This was in 1957, which would be *gasp* 57...

    Don't encourage him, and don't discourage him. There is nothing wrong with educating him about safety equipment and safety tips if he wants to ride, but let him decide himself what he wants to do.
