Horse Trading for Dummies

Apparently it's a good idea for everyone to buy and attempt to retrain horses...

Horse Trading 101

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is insane

This just burns my butt to no end!!!!!!!!!!!

What a J E R K! He's making money by actually ADVERTISING how to be a horse trader!!!!!!! And not a good or responsible one either!!!!

He's saying any KNOB can go out, but a few dirt cheap horses and turn a buck, UGH....Does he also sell Puppy Mills 101???

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH... I have to stop or I'll run the risk of needing to be moderated!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I love how he talks about "90,000 horses are going to slaughter every year"

All that means is some person with know horse knowledge but a pocketbook is going to go to the sale and see $50 babies and buy them but then have no idea how to take care of them. But it's okay because as long as they don't die before she sells them she's going to make thousands being a horse trader!!

That is absolutely ridiculous.

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

"90,000 horses are going to slaughter every year"

Yeah because of the people out there who don't know what they are doing and send the horses mad or they don't get retrained properly and eventually filter down to a family that decides to slaughter them because the horse is horrible.

This is absolutely ridicolous this book and should be illegal! Nobody should be allowed to write a book like this and publish it!

I think that horse trading is a good idea.............IF YOU KNOW HORSES. The plan that this guy has is insane tho. I have done a little horse trading in the past. What I would do is look for people who were selling unbroken horses, buy them for a low price, put 60 or 90 days riding on them and then sell them for a profit. But, I know horses and how to train them. This program is encouraging people who know nothing to start buying horses and trying to re-sell them immediately. I can already see someone going to a sale and buying 4 or 5 colts that are 2 and 3 years old for $50 a head. Then they realize "Oh, crap. There is no market for horses like this. Oh, well. Back to the sale they go." Or maybe they will just leave them in a pasture to starve. This makes me mad. One or two at a time is okay if you know what you are doing but this will promote mass ignorance. :( This guy is going to get someone killed.

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/

I agree, horse trading is good when done by knowledgeable people.
This is just...completely irresponsible

I weant back and read some more. He brags about selling four mules for 450$.
Wonder if that was a kill buyer? Wouldn't be surprised
