In the current economy, if you've got cash, there is a serious firesale going on in the horseworld. You can get really nice horses that two years ago would have sold for $10,000 for around $5,000. There are many people who find themselves unable to keep up with the monthly bills of horse ownership and just want to find a nice, responsible home for their fancy show horse. There are also lots of free/cheap medium quality animals to be found on Craigslist.

Most often, horses are listed in the "Homes and Garden" section of Craigslist NOT the Pet section. The Farm and Garden section in under the "For Sale" area of any Craigslist city page.

Here are a few sample listings in Florida that I found for nice looking horses that were under $1000 (click the screenshots to view the entire listing). Check your city and see what you can dig up.

this guy selling tbs’ for $1 just guaranteed his horses will be going to slaughter. i hope he’s proud of himself. why doesn’t he just have them humanely put down by a vet?

the same goes for the horses selling for $800

SUCH BEAUTIFUL HORSES TO BE TURNED INTO MEAT!

Listen lawrence I would love to have one of this persons horses and so would allot of people.You can’t say they are at slaughter because you don’t know.Most kill buyers don’t pay 800.00 for a horse they pay maybe 200.00.I think your probably a breeder that wants top dollar for his horses so your making people not want to get these.Discrouraging people from advertising these.I want 4 horses and would like a good deal that would help someone and save a horse.Just bought a ranch in MO. and would love to to have 4 horses all fenced big barn plus corrals 4 of them infact.So don’t say where the horses are going because you don’t know and nether do I but I would gladly buy 4 Cindie
