Best of Craigslist: ‘That’s a Real Bargain!’ Edition

Today’s lineup: a $10,000 19-year-old greenbroke pony, a $700 horse halter that isn’t actually a halter, the perfect setup for a “horse walked into a bar” joke, a seller with a death wish, and more!

Reader Sydney sent this one in: “I was reading this ad and it HAS to be a joke…maybe they’re aspiring to be featured on your “best of” list? Either way…what the s**t??”


Offering the best pony in the world! He came with the name Rapeseed, but I didn’t like that so I changed his name to Giggles. Giggles is an import from Canada, eh! He is a stallion gelding cross! He is 39 inches tall at the shoulder 🙂 We have such a great bond! I even taught him to put his hoof on my head and on my shoulder! I really am going to miss him.. I recently bred him to my thoroughbred mare and I think the baby horsie is going to be sooooo cute! I hope it will be a pinto bay that’s like a midget thoroughbred! Giggles knows how to bow, lie down, shake. I was told he could have the potential to jump 4’7 vertical oxers! He is also a 1D barrel horse in the peewee division(he runs 7’s, or at least I was told..hope that’s good?!?!?!) Sometimes he likes to run me over or kick me. he rears under saddle and acts like a bronco a lot!! I’m a beginner rider so he is perfect for a beginner person! And he’s strong too! He carried 5 guys at once! Giggles is 19 years old and is green broke. He’s the absolute mostest perfect horsie in the world! I am asking $10,000 because I want to buy a grand prix horse to use for trail riding and gymkhana!

Wow, just $10,000? That’s a steal!

Cory forwarded us a handful of interesting ones: “A halter that’s not a halter for $700…


…this horse hanging out at the bar…


…then gets to go for a backwards ride and a little pony surfing…



…and this horse that is so broke you can lay under it.”


Yep, it’s all fun and games until your horse reflexively kicks at a fly on its belly and you lose your head, which probably wasn’t screwed on too tight to begin with.

Ruby sent this one in: “I saw this horse advertised on Facebook and thought I should share! It’s not the worst, but a bit odd to tie a horse by the neck although it is a ‘nice azz horse that kids can touch.’ So not wild then? I first thought they were talking about kids touching its arse and was a bit worried, LOL!”
