    Default Where to advertise for a riding instructor when hiring?

    Hi, I have seen the "Help Wanted" section of The Chronicle, but what other options are there? I want to reach my local "pool" of applicants, and this is not for a fancy barn, just a laid back kids lesson program that needs a new instructor. Any advice on where to advertise (Zone 2 if that helps)? I tried Tacktrader, but I am not sure how many people really look for work on there.
    Thanks and happy holidays!

    Have you tried http://www.yardandgroom.com/

    Are there any local horse type of newspapers in your area?

    Our local show associations (both H/J and dressage) have websites with free or low-cost classified ads sections.

    Horse of the Delaware Valley if you are in that section of Zone 2. Hands down.

    We don't have any local horsey publications-- there is Horse of Del Valley as lcw suggested, but that reaches the area south of us. :-(

    I will check out yard and groom, and the local website that lists horse shows in the area.
    Anything else I am missing?
