How do I claim my listing?

First, create an account for yourself. CREATE AN ACCOUNT If you have multiple businesses (i.e. farrier, trainer, and massage therapist) you only need one account to create multiple listings. You can manage your listings when you go to your account dashboard. You will receive an email confirming your account registration and login information. (Later on when you request to claim your listing, you will get a second email which will direct you to confirm your address and auto approve your claim.)

 

Second, find your listing. You should be able to find it by searching your name under the correct category.

For example: If your name is Mark Taylor and you are a farrier, select the FARRIER category and put your name "Mark Taylor" in the optional keyword box and then hit the search button.

Click on your listing to bring up the page with all your business information. Near the top left of the contact information, there will be a user icon bubble and below that, there will be a button that says "Claim" Click this button.

It will come up with a form to fill out which will send us a request to approve your claim on your listing. It will also send you a second email asking you to verify your email address. Once you verify your email address, you can log in and edit your listing whenever you want! When you are logged in, you will now notice that instead of a “claim” button, there will be an edit button. If you click this, it takes you to a page where you can edit any part of your listing.

 

If you ever decide that you want to upgrade from the free version to the Professional version, all you need to do is go to “My Account” (top right hand corner) and click on your profile name. This takes you to your dashboard which shows all your listings. Select the listing that you would like to upgrade and then click on the link that says “renew listing” This will take you to the page where you select a different package for your listing.

How do I add a listing if I am a horse trainer who has multiple disciplines?

Trainers should list any disciplines in which they are interested in promoting their training business. The categories help lead horse owners to the right horse trainer, so it is important to list in as many discipline categories as you would like to train.

With the free listing, horse trainers are allowed to put training in two different categories (such as driving AND dressage). When you are adding your listing, you can also select which category you would like to show up as your default. It is recommended that you select the category which you are most involved with, or trying to promote, as your default.

If you need to put your horse training program into more than two categories, it is strongly recommended that you upgrade to the professional listing. This allows you to select up to 5 different disciplines (such as dressage, driving, western pleasure, starting and in hand/ground work). In addition, this package offers several exciting ways to promote your business. The Professional Listing allows horse trainers to upload photos, link Facebook and other social media, add tags, and provide more information in the listing description about you as a trainer or your accomplishments.

For horse training programs that need maximum visibility, the VIP Featured listing is the way to go. This listing does not limit the available categories, description characters, or access to social media. In addition, this package allows the horse trainer to post up to 30 photos and even a promotional or demonstration video. Perhaps the most exciting benefit of this package is the FEATURED listing status. Featured status puts your horse training listing at the top with a banner to call attention to your training program!

What horse professional category should I choose?

Stables
The Stable category is for boarding barns, lesson barns, show barns, horse motels, breeding barns, facilities for lease, and ranches. If you are a trainer that doesn't want to take on boarded horses, and would rather keep your facility private, it would be better to ad your listing under the HORSE TRAINER category. The sub categories such as (Dressage, reining, jumping, lesson and breeding) are very important because they help potential boarders and other horse enthusiasts to find the stable that will suit their individual needs that best. When selecting the stable sub-categories, please be as specific as possible. Some of the sub categories will over lap a little bit. It is best to add your listing in as many sub-categories as are applicable to your business.

Horse Trainers
The Horse Trainer category is for

Riding Instructors

Vets

Farriers

Guided Trail Rides
