Best of Craigslist: ‘Trust Me, I’m a Professional’ Edition

When are those words ever followed by anything good? Only in this week’s Best of Craiglist. 

In this week’s ‘Trust Me, I’m a Professional’ edition, we’ll see a horse of questionable height, a pony of questionable nature (or is it name?), a highly-legitimate-looking horse trainer, and our very first ‘Best of Tinder.’ Grab some mane, kids, it’s going to be a wild ride.

We’re pleased this week to introduce our first-ever Best of Tinder, submitted by Zoe: “I saw this guy on Tinder who literally tied himself to his horse’s bit.”



What a catch! We’ll just leave that right there and move along to this pony from Cheyenne: “Another Craigslist gem. There are so many weird parts to this ad, I’m not sure what’s real. First of all, is (Bucky) his name, or what he does? Also, does he drive verily (truly) well, or very well? And last, that’s the strangest bay I’ve ever seen.”



All valid questions, Cheyenne. Here’s one from Lynn: “I’m not sure why some people can’t figure out the concept of a hand being 4 inches.”

Oh, THIS must be what they mean when they say “family” horse … from Brandy.

“Larger” to learn, indeed. And from Morgan: “I personally loved the ‘ornery but still sweet.'”
