I love how she'll take any offer over $100. Wow, how many times do you KNOW what a seller's lowest possible price is? Could be fun to actually try to negotiate with her. Offer $50.

Oh, double post...

He looks like a nice enough horse but the lady that's riding him is terrified. It looks like she's either expecting him to bolt or buck at any moment .

This person will trade their horse for a saddle (no specifics on brand, either!). Key part of the ad: "Just needs more time under saddle. I ride him in arena, but He doesn't know what to do once you get on, so I have my Fiance walk and He follows along."

This ad sounded okay until I got to this line: "If you want to ride him we can saddle him up for you." So apparently THEY aren't going to ride him.

There was one lady I was emailing about a couple of free horses. They were 6-10 yo, apparently no health issues what so ever and one had been ridden at one time, she just didn't have time for them anymore (As stated in the add). She said she needed the horses to go together and the home had to be a forever home. Yes, that was fine. She told me it had to be someone experienced so I let her know about how I break in horses and start them into jumping and showing. Also let her know my mother had just moved in with me and she also used to break horses and now just rides for fun and jumps when she gets the chance. So long story short, we know our way around horses. The lady sent me an email flipping how I used the term "breaking in" instead of "starting"... Now I'm not one to break in the old hop on and break their spirits, we are used to a more "parrelli" approach. After that was said she began to flip again how the horses "had better never be used for riding", that she should be allowed to come and see them anytime she wanted, she had to inspect the place first and wanted referrals. For a couple of FREE horses.
Why would someone have in the add that one of the horses used to be ridden, say that there are no health issues what so ever then demand no one ever set butt on their backs? Doesn't quite add up.

Depending on the previous owner, I would always allow for them to come see the horse, but I would also expect a heads up before coming onto the property in case I happened to be out or if it collided with family events. Of course that could just be me. The only time I'd turn down a previous owner to ever see the horse is if it was like my pony Shnookie, as I got him as a rescue.

Actually, there were a couple horses at the barn I board at that had similar issues. One of them was a two-year-old that was being trained at the same time Aires was. They got up on him and asked him to go and he was like "What?!" and then backed up. lol It took them a good four or five times being lead to realize what was expected of him.

From the fact that the seller mentions they're selling the horse due to their husband's death, it makes me think that the husband was the horse person and the family wasn't too interested, so they may not know how to do anything more than saddle up the horse.

If he's the one being sniffed, he's a relatively good-looking horse...at least as far as you can tell with the grainy, crappy photo provided.
