Best places to advertise a lease, hunter/jumper or dressage horse?
I'm leasing out my horse starting in the summer/fall ideally, while I'm at college. The duration of the lease will be flexible, since I'd love him shown, and I want to make it worth their while. Offsite or onsite is flexible.
He's a quarter horse gelding, very sporty, and is green in jumping and dressage, but has been shown English on the flat (not HUS, even though he's AQHA registered...the way he moves and carries himself, he wouldn't stand a chance going by what's currently winning at the AQHA shows).
I'm trying to find the best places to advertise him. I'm planning on doing a lot through Facebook, especially since there are groups for this kind of thing, but I'm wondering about specific websites I should look into.
I love the sound of BigEq.com, but my hesitation is that it is so expensive! $55 for a basic ad, granted the ad is there for 6 months, but I'm a poor college-bound kid. I guess you pay for the results you want, and I definitely DO NOT want craigslist-level advertisement. DreamHorse and Horseclicks are the other ones I know of that are pretty popular.
Any others I may have good luck with?
