Best of Craigslist: ‘Standardbred gelding rides&drives – $800’

Interesting photo choice. Reader Hannah J., who sent us the ad, writes, “They say he’s powerful… wonder if he broke his halter?”

Standardbred gelding rides&drives – $800

Jack is a 16 hand 15 year old blood bay gelding who rides and drives . He’s great on trail rides too! Needs and exp rider past the walk because he’s a very powerful horse . He’s still learning to canter he’s pulled a cart more than he’s been ridden so he’s trained not to canter. He’s a great horse but I have no use for him. Good home is a must! 800obo price negotiable to a great home . May trade for horse if I like it or something else? Let me know what you have. Thanks Christina

Another interesting one from Hannah: “80% broke with the saddle — looks like it fits ‘great.'”

Paint Horse – $1000 (Grant)

Beautiful and loving 2 1/2 to 3 year old registered Paint Horse. She has a very good temperament, like a big puppy dog. She is 80% broke and has a great bloodline. I have papers. I just don’t have the time to spend with her. Asking for a $1,000. rehoming fee. She is a family pet and must go to a great, loving home.



From another reader, who writes, “The horse may be smart, but the owner sure needs spelling lessons.”

And then there’s this one, from Mary M.:

Horse advice (Springfield)

I have a horse I am trying to train. He’s somewhat broke, he can lead, and sort of knows woah. I can also get him to back. He dose seem to know i’m the boss but i’m not sure where to go from here. So some advice would be great! If you could show me (on Skype, or in person, or what ever) would be preferred! Since I learn a lot better when I can see what I need to do!

Wow. Readers, if you run across an “interesting” ad in your Internet wanderings, send it our way! Email the link to [email protected]. Who knows–maybe you’ll help connect a horse with a safe, loving home. Go Riding.
