Dear craigslist denizen:
You’re an incredible asshat. How dare you start and compete a two year old. What the hell were you thinking? Was it something along the lines of “hey, she didn’t buck me off, let’s push and push and push until she breaks” – because if so, we have a few choice words (and fists) for you.
“she didn’t do to hot at” team roping? You don’t say. Huh, why wouldn’t a two year old do well in competitive events? Could it be that she wasn’t freaking ready? If your comprehension of the English language is any indication of your understanding of young horses and the training thereof then we can’t even begin to fathom why this wasn’t a raging success. –that’s not to say that spelling and grammar really have any bearing on one’s ability to break and train horses, but if you can’t understand the language that you assumedly speak fluently, how can you expect to understand the language the horses are speaking. Here’s a hint: that deer-caught-in-the-headlights expression on your filly’s face means she’s nowhere near ready for all the crap you’ve already managed to put her through in what we can only hope was a matter of weeks and not, in fact, longer.
It really is people like you that make us rethink anything mean we’ve ever said to or about people who have unridden eleven year olds sitting in their fields.
You are worse than a useless tit. Because of you it is very likely this horse will develop joint and back issues as she ages. It is physically impossible for her to have the necessary muscling, or to have received the proper conditioning, that would have physically enabled her to compete in the events you mentioned.

There was no photo included in this craigslist ad, but we’re kind of thankful for that – we really don’t need to see another knock-kneed baby being forced into work that her body (not to mention mind) just isn’t ready for.
One last thought; how the fuck did this person get into college? SERIOUSLY! There are hundreds, dare we say thousands, of people who want to go to college but can’t afford it – and you let asshats like this one in? Wasn’t a documentary recently done about the declining education system? Clearly we didn’t watch it so if we’re way off please excuse us, but it seems to us that letting someone like this craigslister into college might be a contributing factor. Not that this person should be denied an education, indeed they should be sent back to first grade. Make an effort, show that you can discern the difference between to, too and two and then go to college. Until that happens, give the spot to someone who won’t major in Asshattery 101. Ugh, just goes to show that college is no longer about education, it’s 100% financially motivated. We feel like we should have seen that coming…
