Best of Craigslist: ‘Horse Training’

Can’t say I’m familiar with this particular training method.

Here’s the full ad as submitted by reader Barrett, who writes, “Saw this in the Austin Craigslist and thought of you guys:)”

Open Spaces For Horse Training (College Station)

With many years of experience, I have worked with many different types of horses. My main love has always been the quarter horse type but I have also worked with gaited horses, arabians, thoroughbreds, and even a fresian. I have most of my experience with problem horses and starting colts. No problem horse been too much. I have references and you are more than welcome to watch. I currently have 4 spots available at my barn or I can travel to your place. I currently compete in ranch sorting and can also work with horses in that field as well as ranch horses, roping horse, etc.




Here’s a client for ya, kid! From Emma:




Our friend Snarky Rider tipped us off to this one:

free virgin mare horse (Darlington )

Free to good home virgin mare horse. She is a very gentle horse who has been well taken care of I just don’t have time to ride her anymore. She is broke to ride bare and saddle also broke to drive. I can deliver her if needed.


From Megan, who writes: “So gentle you can blind and suffocate him while wearing a tire and a tarp!” Oh dear.

Quaterhorse gelding “Slim” – $1800 (Wheatland WY)

Gentle bay gelding 9 yrs old 15 hds tall. Broke to ride. No bite, kick, or buck. Intermediate rider. Has learned much of Clinton Anderson’s fundamental exercises. Wormed and ready to go. Tac available.



One word: AMAZING. From Shannon:

Husband available for lease – $20,000 (Calgary, AB)

My husband is available for lease. He is very good at anything you may need him for. I normally would keep him to myself but I want a new horse trailer. I am looking to get $20,000 or trade for a 4 horse slant load horse trailer for his services.


I like the random naked Barbie dolls in the corner of this photo. From Lyn:

saddle – $100 (carmichaels)

Pink brown and black saddle. Needs foot holsters, But is in good condition. My daughter received a new one for Christmas and decided she needed to let go of this one. $100.00 or best offer.




From Sandra-Jean:




And… one more from “Muck Bucket”: “Oh boy! Well with THOSE qualifications!…”

Thoroughbred Stallion – $500 (Danville)

We have a 5 year old Stud for sale he is about 16.1 or 16.2 hands tall. He is broke but he hasn’t been rode frequently and he has a whole lot of spunk in him. If you we to work with him you could train him for pretty much anything you want because he is a very intelligent horse and he don’t deserve to just sit in a field. He is in a field with another stud and he gets along amazingly well with him. His name is Noogle. He is VERY fast and has a lot of stamina and can run forever without getting tired.
