Job Ad?

I checked out equestrian careers and education, but found nothing that could be considered a "help wanted" ad or a "barn hand for hire" ad. Am I allowed to advertise my services in that section? If not, is there a forum that would be allowed?

I would say yes as it is asking for a job, wait until other mods weigh in.

I have never seen a section to advertise your services for hire...

If you do place a thread with job seeking information remember that no phone numbers, Facebook links nor links to any other social media sites are permitted used on this site.
We try very hard here to protect our members identity as we do not know who cruises our forum honestly.
Place personal information carefully.
Not sure how you expect to be contacted...

Might I suggest you check out your local feed stores, tack shops, vets offices, farriers for leads on who is looking for hired hands...
Don't forget going to a barn and asking management if they are hiring or taking employment applications..
Good luck.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

I would think yes, maybe in the horse talk section would be best, and you can request 'PM me for details'. But I don't know how much point there would be to putting an ad here is all. I agree with above that 'going local' is going to be far more use. You might also advertise on a local horsey FB page...

This is the best place to advertise your services and I think that as a private individual, rather than a business, it wouldn't go against our 'no advertising' rule
We don't allow any personal contact info in posts but you can ask members to PM you - you'll need a min. of 5 posts for that.
I'd suggest that you do give a rough idea of where you'd be able to work unless you're looking at moving to a new location.

Just winging it is not a plan
