    Default Which sales websites?

    I am looking for a place to post an ad for a horse up for lease and I was wondering which ones you guys had positive experiences with before I put down the $?
    I.e Dreamhorse, equinenow, etc.

    What about the Equiery? We were thinking about getting an ad in there for next month, but they run fairly expensive especially for color photos and what not...Is it worth it?

    What discipline? Big Eq is good if it's a hunter/jumper/eq horse. Otherwise both Equine.com and Dreamhorse get a lot of traffic. Hope I helped!

    I've bought two off of Dreamhorse, and have several friends who've had success buying and selling there as well.

    My favorite is Dreamhorse. I quit using equine.com years ago, and even after they retooled that site, I find it awkward to use.

    Dreamhorse is easy to search for buyers but they are more expensive than other sites to list and they don't like you to put links to videos.
    Equine.com has horses that are a little cheaper than Dreamhorse and they allow multiple pix and video links for the same price as Dreamhorse.
    EquineNow is free and I've actually gotten more hits off of it compared to dreamhorse and equine.com. They allow video links.
    I also have my horse listed on Warmbloodsforsale.com. They are priced right and you get a lot of pix.

    On EquineNow and Warmbloodsfor sale when you update your ad you move to the top of the search lists, unlike Equine.com and Dreamhorse. A huge plus. All you have to do is look at your ad under the edit screen and it's considered changed - you don't really need to change anything.

    Hope that helps.

    As a buyer - I search them all.
