Which website do you use?

I was just trying to get an idea of what website people use to find boarding barns, if anyone does at all. When I was still boarding my horses, it was with the same trainer I started with from day 1. Then I had my own barns since then.

So I guess I'm asking if anyone uses the newhorse.com or horseboarding.com...trying to see if it is worth my money to pay $50 bucks one one of them to post an ad...and $100 for 6 months on the other!

Honestly when I was searching for a place to board, I used google and craigslist. The ads that popped up first and most frequently were yellow page ads, so you might want to start there. Nothing beats word of mouth. Posting fliers at your local vet, agriculture expo center, etc. Good luck.

As I don't like big barns with drama, I look for smaller places. The last time I changed barns was two years ago and I found them on Craigslist. I also always check flyers at the local feed stores.

I went into all of the local feed stores and asked about smaller barns to avoid the big barn drama. I found the perfect place that I would have never found otherwise!

I used kijiji, to find my currant boarding barn. I found my job (horse barn) on it as well, I find it to be a really great free service

Whenever I'm bored and decide to marvel over the gorgeous hunter barns in my area, I just google "hunter barns in ___" and normally a whole list comes up :)

I keep following this thread, because I am looking for a boarding place in/ around Vanvouver. Since I live in The Netherlands at the moment (planning to emigrate to Canada in may), I have to use internet at this moment.

I already used craigslist and of course this forum, where I got some wonderful tips about finding boarding. :)

I also use Craigslist or fliers in feed store. I've boarded at a few well known to the area barns that didn't require me finding them through advertising, but every other time it's been some free ad
