How can I advertise for a boarder without sounding like a creeper?

My BO let me know that he knows it is hard with me being the only boarder, and that he knows I would like to have someone to ride with, so he offered to let me find another boarder. I kinda want to be picky about it, and do not want everyone and thier mother calling me looking to board thier horse when I do advertise it. I want a mature person, preferably female so the SO doesnt get mad when I spend all my time in the barn But, how do I go about advertising "room for horse and riding partner, mature female only", without sounding like a creep?

Don't put it in the personals section and I think you'll be right

Seriously though, you are not alone in wanting a riding buddy and/or boarder, there are many others out there too. If you advertise specifically to the equine crowd, they'll understand!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Just be honest and put exactly what you want in ad. As already said - people will understand. Good luck!

Local boarding facility has one stall vacancy. (Blah blah blah about barn and what it offers, plus price of board). Current boarder is looking for riding buddy. Mature female who is as passionate about horses is prefered.
