Grand Prix Jumper – Free to Good Home… These ads might sound too good to be true, but that doesn’t make them any less hilarious. A new series by Amanda Ronan.
Lately, Horse Nation has been serving us up the wild, wacky, and downright terrible ads via Craigslist. We laugh at them, only to keep from crying. But when was the last time you saw a really, really good ad? The kind where you say, “This can’t be real?” and your buddy says, “You better call NOW!”
On that note I bring you Horse Nation Fantasy Ads… the ads we all WISH we had found.

Free to deserving home. 16.2hh Grand Prix level prospect. Imported from Germany earlier this season for my spoiled rotten child. Willing to give away to loving, hardworking youth or amateur that will brush him every day and ride him at least 4 times a week. This will teach my spoiled child a lesson! Well…maybe not…so why don’t you take the sweet sixteen Mercedes horse van too! PACKAGE DEAL! Contact: email@example.com
