2014 was a truly special year for horse sales on Craigslist.
We rummaged through the archives and singled out a few ads that exemplified and embodied the Craigslist spirit. And the winners are…
Best Sales Photo (Two-Way Tie)
From Valerie: “Nothing says ‘I gotta have this’ like a picture of the horse rearing up and in the process of flipping. Bonus point for not knowing what a palomino looks like.”
From Leah: “I love the questionable grammar, clearly accidental price, and incongruous photo. It’s the full package!”
From Tiffany: “These people really need a stall :)”
Best Saddle Application
From Christy: “Found this gem on Facebook! They had it pulled down before I can read the 55 comments but I was able to get a screenshot. Even my husband couldn’t manage this.”
Best Breastcollar Application
Best Horse Boarding Ad
From Addie: Please, nobody sell this woman their pony.
Best Horse Trailer
From Pam: “Montanans — we are very optimistic people.”
Best Horse Trailer with Living Quarters
From Kimberly, Lauren and Kari: “DIY living quarter horse trailer.”
Most Skilled Horse
From Rachel: “How to sell a horse, selfie style.”
Best of 2014, Grand Champion
