My Lease Ad- Suggestions?

I need to lease my horse out (ASAP) so I put an ad on the web. I'm not the best at writing things out sometimes, so I'd love to call on the HF community to give me some advice. What do you look for in an ad? What could I add to my ad (haha)? Thanks for looking and pass it on if you know someone in my area

I find it very wordy and hard to find information. Group things together that are related. So his show record would be listed together or in bullets (point form?), any training worth mentioning he has (flying changes, schooled to ___ jump hight, leg yeilds ect).I would open with his age, breed, height, and sex. You want your ad to be easy to read and find information, when I'm reading an ad I don't want to have to be making lists of my own to refernce from if that makes sense. Cute horse! Sorry if this is rambling or jumbled I'm pretty tired :)

Court, I am really surprised that you aren't selling him! The previous post has helpful info. Are you trying to lease him as a junior horse? That's the feel I'm getting. Just make sure your ad is tailored to the audience you want.

I would email an ad to all the barns on the NTHJC website and see if they have any clients that would be a good match. You'd be surprised to find that a lot of barns don't mind this because that would mean another boarder, lesson/show client ect...

Show-ready! Ocala is an 8 year old TB gelding standing 16.2 hands. He has shown successfully at local and schooling shows, and has the potential to be competitive at "A" shows. Ocala never refuses, is bold to the fences, and has auto changes. Schooling _'_", successfully shown up to _'_". Has been shown by children and juniors in both the Hunter and Jumper rings.
Owner going to college. On-site lease only, open to full or partial lease. Serious inquiries only please, motivated lessor.

I'd suggest trimming it down to what I wrote above, or some variation of that. People don't read wordy ads - you can get gushy with how great he is in your email correspondence. Keep the ad to a minimum, highlighting good career points. They will ask questions, you just want to grab their attention with a quick, sharp ad.
