Unhappy This is an interesting ad

Thoroughbred Jumper gelding - $100

TODAY ONLY! Come get him. For this price no test rides. He is broke to ride he is a hunter jumper and is advanced beginner safe. 17 yrs old 16.2 hands tall bay.. Ad will be removed once he is gone. NO HOOF KICKERS!!!


Hmm, wonder what the horse did for a quick sale and no test rides.

When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

Probably has navicular. Either that, or he's as crazy as the March Hare.

Those were my same thoughts too. Some poor person is going to be told this is a great riding horse and get on when they get home and get seriously hurt.
I hate when people cover things up with horses.

Yep, some noob is going to be scammed big time. All they're going to see is the asking price, not worry about why they can't do a test ride.

Horse will hurt or kill them, and its last ride will be to either Canada or Mexico, if someone doesn't put a bullet in its head first.

If I saw a horse that cheap, I wouldn't even consider it to be honest, and did it have a picture? Becuase if it didn't I wouldn't even open the link

Where did you get it off?

No it was a Craigslist ad (of course) no picture.
Gee, my boy was free and I got to test ride him plus I got a week to come out and do what I wanted with him before I even said ok. Course it helped that my friend had him for 2 months a year ago and new his temperament and all.
I'm sure with winter coming on there will be more like this.

What is a hoof kicker?

Could they just slap a sticky note on their forehead with the word SCAM written all over it? Jeez, the things people will do to get rid of a horse.
