Craigslist: ‘Once In A Life Time Offer On A Horse!! – $250’

Eventing Nation editor Jenni Autry passed this one our way with the note, “If you can look past the rearing problem and the terrible legs, she could be your dream horse!”

 Once In A Life Time Offer On A Horse!! – $250 (Holbrook, PA)

Are you looking for a horse with tons of spunk and spirit? If so, you’ve found the right one! She’s an American Quarter Horse, 9 years old, 14-16hh, her name is Cinnamon Sugar, she is not registered. Her Dam and Sire are at my neighbors house and you may look at them. This horse has more spunk and spirit than most horses. She isn’t broke, but with the right training she’ll be perfect for anything! She has grace, but she always has a wild spirit. In her eyes, she’s the boss. She does need a good bit of work, but I had a trainer out here once and within only a day, she was doing everything he asked, but the trainer would not break her for me because she is for expirenced riders only! I have rode her, some days she does do whatever you ask her to do, but other days she won’t let you on her, if you get on her she either won’t more or she’ll buck and rear until you get off of her. She never seems to run out of energy. Most of you will think that she isn’t worth $250, but with her spirit and spunk, after she’s broke, this horse will be worth at least $2000.

I am also giving the buyer of my horse a western saddle, a bridle, a saddle blanket, 2 girths, and a longline.
