This one cracked me up: nh.craigslist.org/grd/2860849911.html

They want $14,500 for this horse, and this is the photo they offer:



Yes, the one on the ground is the one they're selling. Really?

I hope they accidentally added one too many zeros to the price. He sounds like he has some nice qualities but not $14,500 worth 0.0

Yes, his main nice quality seems to be that he likes being brushed, so $14K is a bit high for that. :)

I don't think I understand. How, exactly, is a tie down supposed to minimize injury on a bucking horse? It doesn't stop him from bucking or make it harder for him, it doesn't keep him from flipping over if he takes a mind to, it won't stop him from falling or bucking into a fence or off a cliff or into the side of the barn if he is so inclined. So, what is it supposed to do that will "minimize injury"?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

No idea here either. The only time we have put a tie down on a horse was when a horse was getting really bad a throwing their head in the air with beginner riders that couldn't stop it (you could see the nostrils while sitting in the saddle) and it was set loose enough that they could hold the head high, but stopped the nose straight up hard head toss. Unless they know of a different kind of tie down that prevents the head from going down, instead of up?

It's possible. My friend's arab mare was almost constantly in heat after my friend moved her to the barn we're at now (had her at a friend's barn before that). The mare was in love with the trainer's arab gelding, who was stalled right next to her (there is a 5-foot aisle between their stalls, but they're open, pipe-rail stalls). She would back up to the railing of her stall with her butt pointed directly at Rex and squirt at him. Drove my friend up the wall. Great little mare on the ground and in the arena, but get her on the trails and she turned into a psycho.
