18-20ish year old mare. Great trail horse. Smooth gaits. VERY well broke. Was 11yo girls trail horse. Must sell before Nov 1 or price will go up because another month's board is due! This is a STEAL for this price! Has coggins, vaccines, worming, feet done! Can arrange hauling!


Ok, so I've seen people threaten to raise the price with more training (horse is worth more, they can ask more - I'm fine with that). But this horse is already supposedly "VERY well broke." So she thinks that if she can't get her current asking price, RAISING it will make her sell?? I'd hate to see her asking price 6 months from now...
She's only asking $275 right now, so she's pretty much looking to double the asking price after Nov 1.

Hehe Craigslist has spell check for a reason Pretty spots though.....

Gelding needs new home - $3500 (ridgefield)

I have a gelding that I don't have enough time for. He is 15.2 hands, big boned kinda slimmer not much. He is a great horse he does almost every thing.he bath, good with feet, loads easy. He has done drill for a year been to the beach twice the does arena stuff, but would rather do trails. I think he would be good as a English or jumper, but I don't do ether. I had Him go to a trainer for a month just for a tone up because I didn't ride him for 9 months do to being pregnant. He went to the trainer two months ago hoping to find time to ride him but it don't seem to be happening. I have only rode him once sense he has came back home. I have a four month old child and six horse I just don't have the time to ride as much as I was riding. He is a easy keeper but does not like being lock in a stall all day and night. He is really easy to handle but not a beginner horse.

Love his spots! Kinda high priced for a horse that's hardly been ridden in like a yerar other than a few weeks with a trainer..

I did, too!! I mean, Aires is going through a growth spurt right now and his butt is about 2" higher than his withers, and THAT is uncomfortable enough! I can't imagine riding a horse that butt high!

What a patient horse!

That looks like a really nice horse! Maybe fat, but nice. And for a sale video... I don't really think having a kid ride the horse for the whole time is a great sale tactic. Small kids just don't know how to ride a horse properly, so an older more experienced ride should also ride the horse to show off the horses skills.

Ok so its not an add but its along the same lines..
What's even worse than the for sale adds is some peoples' response to them. I currently have a horse for sale and check out the reply I got this morning. As soon as I read it I thought of you guys so enjoy

"hi im ashley and I was woundering if Abu would do well in barrels and pole bending and pleasure riding riding and im looking for a first horse I don't mind training if had nine years of riding traning etc and im on a budget is would you mind going down to 1500 dollars? He's a beatiful horse"

I've seen experienced hunter ponies go for that around here. It's ridiculous.
