    Blogger and WordPress are both good sites to start with. Set up accounts with both and play around with them--it'll really come down to which one you find easiest to use. The features are about the...

    There are lots of good, cheap horses in this area. Searches have to get prioritized somehow, and potentially good horses will be overlooked no matter what--it's just not possible to go out and look...

    Based on the people I know who would put up those sorts of pictures in their ads, the only thing they make me assume is that the horses are drugged and/or exhausted to the point of no resistance.

    Given your use of yard, I'm guessing you are in Europe or Australia/New Zealand, but still--see if you can find a working farm/ranch and go out and help with cattle work (to whatever extent...

    I know someone who has a barn and is a full time student (so not as rigid as a 9-5, but still a big commitment outside the barn). Based on what I saw with her experience, you are looking at:

    It's about the length of the back, size of the hip, etc, more than the height.

    My Arab cross was 14.3-ish and fit very nicely in a 66. She was very short backed--it was a serious consideration...

    I just sold a saddle on FB.

    Buyer paid via PayPal and I shipped to them. They could return within one week of receipt, but then they were responsible for shipping both ways. In this case, they...

    Fin is an Arab/Saddlebred/DHH cross. I wasn't even looking for a horse when I saw his ad last year, but he was too good to pass up.

    He was an unstarted 3.5 year old when I got him, so we've just...

    Well, if you want to count clicks, I found my horse with one click. On Facebook.

    I was logged in to Facebook already and he popped up on my feed automatically. I read the intelligent, well-written...

    "Dear Seller Whose Horse I Found On a Non-Facebook Site,

    I'm very interested in Dobbin, and would like to know if X, Y, Z.

    Do you have any video I can look at?

    Also, I do not have a Facebook...

    I wouldn't make that assumption personally.

    For what it's worth, one of the major free dating sites also experiments on its users. They just don't catch flak for it because people don't love to...

    No seller ever reaches the entire buying public. There will always be some site they didn't post the ad to that had buyer(s) who would have been a great fit for the horse, and they and the buyer(s)...

    I suspect you're wrong on the demographics. Younger people are fleeing Facebook because there are too many parents/adults on it--for a long time, it was being jokingly referred to as "Mombook." I...

    Honestly, these days, providing Facebook is a perfectly valid way to reach the majority of online users. You are in the minority, so for the sellers, dealing with you is the exception to a typical...

    Honestly, I'd sell him then.

    You already did one good thing for him--took in a lame horse and sorted out his issues. Not everyone would have taken the risk that he wouldn't be fixable.

    For my mom's wedding, my brothers and I bought one of those chainsaw carvings of a bear, about 3.5' tall, with a sign that had her new last name on it -- something they could put on their porch.

    Oh, well I'm sure you're all right then.

    There's no possible other explanation than that the owner should be put behind bars for not caring enough.

    But on the off chance that she might have...

    Wait... you're dealing with re-rider/post-injury comeback, he's more athletic than other horses you've ridden, and he's dealing with a discipline switch?

    That is A LOT to be trying to sort out in...

    I worked in an office where people were pretty close and pranking happened on a continuous basis. I'd recently been part of a run-of-the-mill computer prank on my manager.

    I don't have the app, but someone at my barn does. From what I've heard, it makes bad recommendations that are being shared with whoever is at the barn as "what you need to do." Gah.

    I hope she's...

    Nope. I like ribbons as much as the next person, when I get them. Ribbons/rankings may not be the primary reason I show, but I still like seeing how it shakes out.

    Not necessarily.

    Plenty of people who show are there for personal goals that have nothing to do with wanting a first-place ribbon. in that class/at that show. Or at all.
