How do I get my property advertised on the website?

I created an ad but it wasn't saved. Why not?

What is considered an equestrian or horse property?
A horse or an equestrian property is any real estate property that is zoned for horses. Often, there are a number of deeded restrictions regarding specific uses of the property including deeded community horse trails, the number of horses allowed per lot, and restrictions on commercial use of the horses.
I am getting an error message when I go to buy an ad. Any suggestions?

Yes, we are an international website. But since most of our buyers are in the US, we display currency only in US dollars so that our buyers won't be confused with multiple currencies.
