HAHA! I'd have turned around and ran straight for my car right then!

I like the ads that write about ALL KINDS of things the horse can do ON THE GROUND, but don't say a thing about what it's like in saddle. Gets peoples hopes all up until they realize the horse may not even be broke... lol

Very broke kids safe mare. She was used at birthday parties and the kids were crawling all over her. She had no buck, rear, bite, etc.

Well, it turned out she did everything else - most things no horse would do because the hurt themselves while doing it, she didn't care!

Well, the horse was VERY green, and happened to be in a pasture besides the kids at the party, who went to the fence to feed her. (so that makes her a very good kids horse:))

She was tons of fun, but not what she was supposed to be like. She is a little mentally unstable!!

I know lots of GREAT horses I would sell because we don't "click". The horse can be great, but the horse and rider as a pair just aren't good together. The horses can be great with someone else.

Now on this one, my mule can do all those things and I don't consider her child/husband safe, so I can completely understand this one.

I also understand the 'not clicking'.

My personal favorite:

"Well he is just too hard mouthed"
"Can I see you ride it?"
"Alright"
The guy never let the reins leave his completely extended arms in every which way.


Hmmmmmmmmm........................................ .................................................. ......I am still trying to figure out why this horse has a hard mouth............................................. ........any ideas?

I hate when the ad states awesome barrel/cutting/jumping/dressage.... whatever the horse is supposedly great in... and there are no pictures of it even being ridden. Just out in the pasture.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

That one gets on my nerves as well--they just show pics of their Super Duper Amazing Cutting Poneh out to pasture, or free-lungeing, or a close-up of their eye....what are we trying to do, examine the freaking eye?! Lol

What, you are not an experienced enough horse person to tell that this is the worlds bestest ever reining/jumping/dressage horsey by a close up eye photo?



Or how about the head shot with the horse looking over a stall wall? The ad talks about the great conformation of the horse but you get this nasty, dark, out of focus photo of the thing poking its head over a wall.
