He is more like a quarterhorse then a thoroughbred. He neck reins or two handed rides. Would make a suitable husband type horse. For more information call..."
hahhahahaha! I don't even know what to say about that add.
Lease opportunity. Why the heck would you ever write an add like this?
"I have a TB gelding who is 11 and 16.3 hands rides english, super bomb proof, can ride in halter and lead rope, or even just a rope although he doesnt neck rein very well. I am 22 years old right now and I just bought him a year ago, I have college and work and don't really have the time to WORK him like I need to, Or take him out as much as he deserves. This lease would be for up to 3 days a week for $160.
You are welcome to ride him however you like. He jumps a little (used to course 3') but he's honestly more of a trail/ pleasure horse, plus he's gotten a little fat and lazy haha. I'm at a private boarding facility that doesnt really have any people who show or crazy snobby people, it is super quiet, and has access to poway trail system.
He is a GOOD boy, can be a little testy but if you're are a legit intermediate rider he's a piece of cake. If you'd like to come on up and test ride him i'd be cool with that... dont worry I'm not one of those people who like to judge/critique you on how you ride. As long as you can keep a horse between you and the ground.
My ideal person for him would be someone a little like me who rides a little english, a little western, and a whole lot of bareback- whose idea of a good ride is cantering on trail or jumping fun 2' jumps in the arena. Someone light hearted and down-to-earth who doesnt want to show but wants a horse with that potential. Preferably over 18 years old. I would like an intermediate rider or an advanced beginner just because he can get a little hot when you let him run a little too fast. Price is negotiable for the RIGHT rider!!!
So if this sounds like you and you want a drama free lease and a charming horse with an extremely, dorky personality to ride then this is your chance!"
So is she posting a professional add? Or is this a note to a classmate? And I thought he was a good beginner horse, so is she suddenly saying that he can get a "little"hot, after she's already said he is lazy?....I'm confused.
At the end there it sounded a little like he was writin' his profile on match.com.....""someone light hearted and down to earth" lmao
