    Default Where are People Advertising Boarding Space?

    My farm where I board is currently just me and one horse owned by the barn owners. Since I have been there, the owners have decided they wouldn't mind having a few other boarders and would give me a break on board if I help out with upkeep and feeding. They would prefer me to find a few people I like who are interested in showing dressage and are serious about riding. The facility is gorgeous, tons of pasture and nice 12X12 stalls with a professional grade arena and a lit pasture (lit like the SUN) for riding after dark. I am relatively new to the dressage community where I live (Tallahassee area), and was wondering if there are any good websites for advertising boarding space that will be looked at by primarily dressage riders. Thanks!

    Word of mouth is probably the best. Do you already know people in the dressage community? If not, check out the local GMO, advertise in their newsletter, go to meetings etc.

    Contact SWDEA...the local dressage and eventing association. I'm sure they can put a blurb on their website and in the newsletter. I'm with NFDA in Jacksonnville...a lot of the riders in SWDEA come to our shows

    Thanks! Yeah, I have been spreading the word through farriers and trainers, I didn't think of the SWDEA website, that's a great idea!

    Local horse magazines. For example, in Maryland the Equierry is where you'd advertise.
