Worst CL Ad
The following ad was sent to us by multiple concerned readers (thanks for sending!) and with a photo like this we’re sure you understand why!
10 yr old Bay gelding (Man’s horse) – $300 (Devine Texas)
10 year old Bay Gelding. Man’s horse to ride. Loads easy into horse trailers. Has been on trail rides. Very strong horse for experienced riders. Loves attention. Named Bravo. Call
Sweetheart, you’d have an easier time selling that horse if you didn’t have that photo up! We would love to know what it is about that photo that makes you think (or whatever semblance of the process your pea-sized brain can handle) that photo will help sell that horse. Is it the fact that we can almost see some teeth? As in your thought process went something like this: horse teeth = good? Is it the fact that the horse has the ability to carry a big-ass dude like yourself? Showing that the horse is both strong enough in its back and tall enough to successfully (and unfortunately) carry you? Never mind the fact that you’re sitting so far back that you’re not truly on his back anymore; you’re basically on his butt!
We haven’t even gotten into the fact that this appears to be another photo of a photo, that the horse vaguely resembles a camel, that once again we have an ad where the seller felt no need to mention height or breed and finally, WTF is a “Man’s horse to ride”?
Here’s an idea: how about you actually fit your tack properly and put some damn training on the horse instead of just attempting to bully it around? ‘Cause if what you’re doing in the photo is what you consider a “man’s ride”, there’s not a horse on the planet who needs or deserves it!
