Best of Craigslist: ‘Dream Big’ Edition

No dream is too big. Except, maybe, for some of these.

In this week’s ‘Best of Craigslist,’ meet the dreamers who are selling a ‘palomino’ and a ‘loving and gentle’ pony, and seeking the world’s best lesson horse for the world’s best price–and so, so much more.

Let’s just jump right in — this one comes from Katie: “I would like a rainbow unicorn too please…”


I’m looking for a FANTASTIC and FABULOUS horse for a growing lesson program. I am looking for a FREE horse seeking a good home with quality care, regular riding, and lots & LOTS of love. We feed 3 daily feedings, grain, supplements, daily turnout, daily handling/riding. Regular Chiropractic, vet and farrier care with references.

~ 13 hands or OVER
~ SMOOTH easy to sit JOG for western riders and children ~ SLOW/Lazy Is fine!
~ SAFE on the Ground and easy to handle For All Ages and Experience Levels
~ SOUND this is a must, needs to be VERY SOUND – We do regular chiropractic, vet work, and farrier care. So issues that can be resolved with Chiropractic work will be considered.
~ Underweight, overweight are fine I have experience with both
~ Prefer Under 20 years old but will consider up to 25 for the right BREED and SOUNDNESS
~ Neck rein, plow rein, or direct rein, don’t care as long as the speed control is there (willing to do training to fix any issues as long as they are safe issues)

PREFER Quarter Horse, Paint Horse, Buckskin, Appaloosa, POA, Ponies, Stock type horses. WILL consider Arabian and Arabian Crosses as long as they are SMOOTH riders and the typical Friendly Arabian

NO Thoroughbreds, gaited horses, or gaming horses.



Good luck with that. From Brandy: “Stumbled across this and I thought I’d send it your way!”

Well, I’m sure that golden coat is under there somewhere. From Natalie: “She looks SO loving and gentle!”



Yikes. And then there’s these next three ads, which shows us that one little letter has the power to change everything.

From Sarah: “Have you ever heard of a horse in the house?” Hey, Sarah, every house needs a little pain…er, PAINT.

Whoops. Another minor letter issue from Jessica: “Rain trained? Just what I always wanted!”



Brace yourself for the return of the bread horse, brought to us by Lynn:



And there’s just plain old bad spelling, sent in from Leah: “Oh the spelling errors! Oh the humanity!



From Stephanie: “This one made me laugh.”

This next one’s not a real horse (which is fortunate) sent in from Joye: “No not the pony’s leg!”
