    Craigslist never fails to bring a smile - or a head slamming on the desk!

    Wow! I wonder if I could register my Appy with the AKC? Then he could be double registered with the ApHC and the AKC. [​IMG]

    Heck, the way the AKC works I can probably fudge some papers and register my mutt Arab and grade Percheron, too!

    Question when is a child an experienced rider??? Sounds like the poor horse needs an experienced owner. However you might want to double check the plumbing just to be safe.

    That was funny, as is the opinion that she she loves to run and buck, but is good around children - ?

    No doubt! How about, "If you hate your children/grandkids...here's a great way to off them."

    I had a horse that was really sweet with my kids, but the second I got on her - her brakes disapeared. [​IMG]


    (a percheron/quarter cross) she was a real honey, and my kids could be all over her, but the second it was an adult - all bets were off...... we never left the kids on her alone, always had a lead line... but still she was smart...

    Quote:But you CANNOT market a horse like that to be good around KIDS. Some moron will buy it (and it's cheapo Mexican leather and cordura saddle and nylon bridle with a stamped metal curb), throw their kids up there and wind up at ER. Nothing that requires an experienced adult rider should have anything regarding children in the ad. We have an Arabx gelding who requires an experienced adult rider and my kids aren't ever even going to PONY around on a leadline on him...ever! I certainly wouldn't try to sell him as such.

    I get what you're trying to say. I had a TB gelding that knew beginner riders apart from experienced ones. He was a smart, great lesson horse because he could go from W/T - nice and quiet with a 10 year old to the Am Jumpers with an experienced rider. I don't think this ad points to such an equine!
