From upside-down stirrup leathers and ill thought-out sales photos to spelling that makes you go “hmmm,” this week’s batch of reader-submitted bad ads represents Internet horse salesmanship at its worst.
From Carrie: “Interesting way to attach the stirrups!!”
From K: “Auto correct strikes again?”
From Natalie: “I don’t know what this ad says, but THAT’S the picture they chose??”
From Melissa: “This stallion is so taimed he has to be lifted onto the trailer!”
Hello I currently have a stallion horse for sale very taimed.its good with people easy to lift on trailer and to shower him.Now in $4500 I paid 5000 so they can train him any question call me please at show contact info And look for pedro thank you.
From Jessica: “Um, yeah, because I want my son on a hose that is big, has a lot of energy and go, and he definitely needs to learn how to bridal! Along with that… maybe I will let someone who needs therapy to just come out and ride my mare. After all, you don’t need to be licensed to have a therapy horse! SMH.”
From MJO: Nice flip-flops.

From Tammy: You always wonder about these. It’s like, if no one buys the horse today, what then? Maybe you should have started advertising them last week, or last month.
From Gianina: “Interesting spelling!!!”
From Jane: “So the picture caught my attention but the ad is funny too!”
