Never heard of a girl named Conner.... lol

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

OMG just look at the girls jumping position. I think I would have used a better pic. I didnt really notice how the horse jumped because I was looking at her position going "Wow...scary"
That's how I used to jump. In my defense, it was a year ago! With my trainer that seemed to have exactly zero horse sense! Or people sense! Or sense of what is a terrible position!

Creeped craigslist and this was the first ad. This is the first time I've seen this "option"..
APHA Buckskin filly

What purpose would there be in selling the horse and keeping the papers for yourself at a lower price and making someone pay more just to get the horse's papers with the animal? I don't really understand what they're trying to get out of this..

I have seen this before, papers make the horse more valuable in the future as a possible broodmare, or show mare for "breed shows" not offering the papers keeps the horse more affordable for someone who is looking for a backyard companion, or just open show horse. That way it leaves the field open to all buyers, not just the ones looking for high priced horses or low priced horses.

I guess, but it seems like if that horse is only being offered for $500 without the papers, it wouldn't be a whole crapton more with the papers. Or you could quick on the 20 other ads for papered horses for even less.

Sometimes it's a gimmick used by horse traders. They keep the papers, find a horse that looks like the horse in the papers, try to pass off the new horse as the horse listed in the registration papers, and try to get a higher value on a "registered" horse.

Not often, but I've seen it happen.

She just never told me that jumping way ahead and holding my hands a foot above the horse's neck was incorrect. Here's a picture: http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g1...6/jumping1.jpg
Notice the gratuitous tack... and the hoody. She said it would be okay to wear it during a show...Yes that is a jumper show. Also notice that the horse is taking a long spot. She would jump as soon as I jumped for her. Good horse.

Anyway...

NEED HELP WITH MY HORSE
What this ad actually says:
My horse is crazy and has some awful vice. I cannot control him and I need an experienced trainer. I don't have enough money for this, so you can train in return for barn work! Barn work in exchange for training a hard to handle horse! Thank you!

One of my friend's sisters is named Hunter, which I really like for a girl. It seems like many names are becoming unisex. eh.
