Quotes from Satisfied Customers & Visitors
Here's a sampling of what our customers and visitors have to say about our services.


Bay Area Equestrian classified ads work!!  I placed ads on your site as well as Craigslist and other equestrian web pages.  I immediately began getting inquiries about my ad from your site, and never from the others.  These are tough times and trying to link serious buyers with sellers is even more critical.  Many thanks for such a wonderful service. Steve Ramsey

I just sold a horse today through BAEN and I've actually found and/or sold every previous horse I've owned since 8 through you! I also have BAEN to thank for connecting me with a competitive local job straight out of college, so it has been a part of some very important events in my life. BAEN has become a real hot spot for the greater Bay Area and makes it easy to post one ad on one site and get so much local interest and exposure. Everyone seems to have heard about it, so I don't have to post on multiple sites and pay multiple fees only to weed through ads from too far away. I wish BAEN had affiliates across the country- I moving out of state and would hate to have to sell another horse without it. Thanks for the great service, upgrades, and community features; keep up the good work! Heather Wilson, Morgan Hill

Thank you Debbie Smith and BAEN for helping me find a lease for my horse Reiner. I had quite a few responses from the ad and love the way I could customize it. I've spent a lot on unsuccessful ads on other sites, now I go straight to BAEN when I want to sell something horsey. BAEN always gets the biggest response rate from local buyers. I recently sold a Saddle on BAEN that went to the East Coast, it just works for me. Ruth Lake

I needed to know how to give my horse a shot, but I searched & searched with no results, until low & behold, I found your
Horse Lover's 2-Minute How To Video , it's "GREAT". It was so helpful, now you're on my favorites!!! Again , THANKS-THANKS-THANKS.  Kerry Combs

Thank you for your help.  Thank you for your positive internet presence.  I appreciate the subtle ways in which you use the huge forum of BAEN to encourage people to think and act morally and ethically. Cornelia Lovett

Your site is great.. you guys have really done a good job figuring out how to service the biz! Karan Ericksson

Thank you so much for all your help. Don't know what we would do if we didn't have such a great resource for horse info!!! How did we get along before Bayequest? Suzanne Contreras

You guys are the best! I was just reading the Horse Evacuation in case of Fire sites and information. You certainly do a great service for the equine community. Thanks again. Janet Glenn

I just got your email congratulating me on the sale of my saddle. I received many, many responses to the ad for my saddle. However, the more important thing was the people I met!  At the same time that I was selling my saddle I was purchasing  a "coolmedics" vest through Bay Equest, It was  a fun way to form new friendships. Maybe we will never come in contact again, but I think we all had fun buying and selling!  Trish MacDonald

I wanted to thank you for responding to me last week when I wrote to you about a mare I was looking for who had been sold at a sale in Turlock. Through an amazing network of people, I was able to find her and bring her home. Thank you so much for taking the time to help! H. Blackmore

Your ad found a wonderful home for this pretty sweet mare. The new owners & I & the mare are all very happy with the outcome. I'm glad you're there & doing a great job. Mary Hogan Winfield

Thank you very much for the speedy service. I appreciate being treated fairly by bayequest, which I think is a great website and visit almost daily.  Juliette Ald, Richmond

I have decided that if the world were run by you and the other fantastic people at Bay Area Equestrian Network...well, the world would just be a much better place. There would always be great customer service; you could depend on getting help with technical issues in a timely manner; everyone would be interested in helping each other out instead of just taking the money and running; you would always feel you were getting great "bang" for your hard-earned "buck (no horse pun intended here); and the end result is that you either find the horse of your dreams, or end up with a dreamy new home for your special four-legged friend. Thanks for helping me match my boy, Paragon, to his wonderful new "girl," Olivia. I am soooo pleased! Anastasia Burke

Just to give you guys some feedback on posting a for horse sale ad- I was certain that I was being too choosy when I laid out several specific criteria when looking for a new home for my gelding. I figured that at least I would have to wait a long time to find the right person. Boy was I wrong! Within a week I had about 5 potentially great homes and ended up finding him a fantastic new place to live. Selling a horse you love is always such an emotional process, I am so thankful your site was able to connect me to the perfect new home. M. Arnold

The first day my ad for pipe stalls/shelters and stall fronts was posted (Thursday) I received over 6 responses. The next day I received several more inquiries. I made several appointments with prospective purchasers for Saturday morning and by 9:00 a.m. the entire lot was sold. They went to their new home on Sunday and LIFE IS GOOD! Even after I posted "sale pending" I continued to get more contacts regarding the item. How many hits per day do the classifieds get????? This was an incredible response - better than Craig's List! Georgia Langsam

My horse was bought by the first person who looked at her! And she was bought by a wonderful lady who will be boarding her where she is so I will still be able to see Annie often. The best of all worlds. Your web site is terrific!! S. Cloran

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my experience using your site. I bought a trailer a year ago, recently sold it and bought another one, all on Bayequest. All 3 transactions were seamless. I had lots of response on my ad and sold it within days. You obviously have a wide base of members and users. In comparison, I had limited response to the same ad that was posted on Craigs List. Keep up the good work. Thanks. Nancy Phillips

Wow, I got tons of emails and calls, even after the ad was marked Sale Pending. I sold my TB gelding for the asking price, and he went to a wonderful home! BAEN Classifieds are the best! And you can quote me on that Thanks so much. Barbara Cook

My horse trailer sold 30 minutes after it was posted! Amazing!! I've had wonderful success with BAEN. They are the first company I go to for serious advertising. Danielle Browning

Sold my endurance gelding on BAEN in about a week! The ad was on longer than that with sort of "boring" photos, but the day I put an action photo on it the inquiries poured in. I had him on Dreamhorse as well and got only three (out-of-state) inquiries. A big difference, and I wonder why, maybe the way the BAEN search functions work? was that the Dreamhorse responses were in the first day or two the ad came out, and the BAEN responses kept coming even after the ad wasn't new any more. Thanks for your great service. Rebecca Bentley, Williams, OR

I want to thank you for helping me sell Jake. I reached far more people than I would have otherwise and I think I found the "dream owner" for him. You system is easy to use and VERY effective. It felt great to put the SOLD notation on the ad. L. Landon

I could not have asked for a better, more rapid response to my ad! Nine inquires within 12 hours, first person who looked at the trailer purchased it. When the time comes to sell something again I'll be back! Thank you! D. Charbonnet

I will say that BAEN was the best site for honest responses to my ad. I had my horse posted on a couple of other sites and got nothing but spam email gdss from people phishing for my personal information! Not from your site though, only honestly interested people and the couple who purchased him found him on BAEN. Great site, easy to navigate and thanks for filtering out the unwanted. I would use BAEN in a heartbeat, exclusively, if I ever have another horse for sale and/or look for one myself. Thank you. Cathy Weymouth

I could not be happier!!!! I have listed 3 things in the past few weeks, My Horse is pending sale, my Horse Trailer sold in about 30mins, my saddle I have had responses too!!! This is a WONDERFUL Website and more than efficient for selling Equine related items. Thank you for Fantastic communication and all your help. You are wonderful to work with. Heather Kinamon

I have always bought and sold through bayequest. All my horses, including my very first one, were bought on bayequest. I have ran an ad and within one week, sold horses. It's the biggest selection and best source around. Never tried anything else. Thank bayequest!!! Sincerely, Kat

Even though I live outside the Bay Area this was one of the sites where I received the most inquiries. Uploading the photo was well worth it and made all the difference. Thanks. Amy

Thank you all for your time and help with my horse. I know that in the future we will be online with you all again. Our family has bought our horses through your online ads. As a matter a fact, our most recent horse was purchased via your Classified Ads. He is proving to be our son's best friend and show pal. The Bettencourts

Even though I live outside the Bay Area this was one of the sites where I received the most inquiries. Uploading the photo was well worth it and made all the difference. Thanks. Amy Bromelow

You are doing a fantastic job with the website, and the bulletin board and chat room have been such a wonderful resource for me since we brought our two horses home last summer! Thanks so much. Teresa Coleman

WOW... Posted my ad for my trailer at 10:30 at night and the next morning at 8:30 a.m. it was sold. I received 11 responses to this ad within 24 hours. WOW! People are crazy not to post to this site. Incredible responses and met some really nice people that I hope to stay in touch with. Kathleen

Many thanks to you and the team of BAEN. Through my recent classified listing, I was able to find the perfect fit and home for my very special gelding. This match is not my first BAEN success story. I sold my two-horse slant trailer within two days of posting. Originally, I had listed it in the classifieds of the Contra Costa Times with zero response. I have listed and sold five saddles, (two mine, three a friends) through the BAEN classifieds. I appreciate your helpful support with downloading of photos as well as the ease of navigating your terrific website! With Much Gratitude, Marie Larum

I have bought two horses found on your web site, that are now a part of my family and one of which has been for a year now. I decided since I had such an easy time finding the perfect horses for my own personal use, that I would try and sell a horse using your site again. This horse was given to me to find a good loving home. I take horses and their care very seriously. In saying that, I placed the ad with you and sold the horse to a wonderful home within 3 days of running the ad. I had many hits and spoke to many people interested. I actually had a choice of a few good homes. I chose the best one and owe it to BAEN in helping me find that wonderful family for a very loving horse. I want to add that the web site was very user friendly. There was another web site I tried to run an additional ad on and could not figure out for the life of me, where to start. I just said, "forget it". With as many hits as I was getting, I really didn't need any help from other web sites. Besides it cost less with BAEN. Thank you again. Katherine Chambers-Gorman

I just wanted to drop a line to tell you that I would definitely recommend BAEN to anyone that is selling a horse. It is very user friendly to post/modify ads and the customer service is great and very responsive and answered all my questions very quickly. The response to the ad was awesome, within 2 hours of the ad being posted I was getting emails and phone calls. I can't believe how quickly (in one week) I sold my horse and am very happy that he is going to a good home. Thanks for having a great service. Stacey Freitas

Thank you for running such a top notch web-site. Your customer service is so prompt & professional. I just sold my gelding from your site. I chose not to list him anywhere else but BAEN & we went pending in 6 weeks. Last week I sold my saddle on your site after just a couple days from listing it. BAEN is where we found both of our horses in the first place. Keep up the wonderful work! Amie, Livermore

I would just like to say that I am very impressed with BAEN. I have bought and sold horses and tack from this site before. This last time, I placed an ad on BAEN and received good, qualified hits almost immediately. The ad I placed on a competitor's site got one lonely hit. I would also like to compliment the staff at BAEN. They have been very friendly and AVAILABLE. I would (and have) recommended BAEN to many people. Rachelle Lightfoot

I absolutely love BAEN and the community of horse lovers it serves. Selling my trailer was so easy and opened the door to meet several people I can now call friends. I spend many evenings browsing your site, for fun, for relaxation, for knowledge and information. Thanks again for serving the horse community so well. Always, Pamela Doheny

I listed my mare on Tuesday, and by Wednesday morning, I had 10 emails requesting information. She was picked up for her new home on Thursday. From ad to sold in two days, and she has the perfect new home! Thanks for the great service! Elizabeth Kamerin

Thank you for providing a terrific service. The ad was placed, and within a day, I had a tremendous response and a sale was made the very next day. Best of all, every ad respondent was legitimate, no sleazy flakes. Good job and thank you for a great service. Susan

Just wanted to thank you for such a nice service. We had our AQHA mare sold in less than 18 hours due to your ad. Because of the nice response to her ad, we have listed two more horses. Thanks so much, Misty Tracy

I was amazed at how quickly our ad reached potential buyers. We got so many inquiries about our Welsh pony within the first few days. The first couple that called ended up being the family to purchase her. Thank you so much for the opportunity to place a free, text-only ad. Susan Condon, Fair Oaks

Our trailer sold the first day you displayed our ad on your website. WOW!! We did not place an ad anywhere else. I usually refer everyone to Bay Equestrian. I have sold two horses here with ease. I consider the Bay Equestrian website to be the Apex for Northern California. Great site. We sold our last horse to a little actress who plays in 7th Heaven in Los Angeles due to our horse being on the your website. You guys are great! Dawn Akel, Elk Grove

I just wanted to thank you and your staff, my gelding sold in one day using Bayequest. He had been on Equine.com for 3 weeks! I had more responses in an 8 hr. period with your site than the entire 3 weeks on the other site! Keep up the great work. Thanks again, Genevieve Ghilotti

BAEN was great! I had an unbelievable response to the sale of my trailer. I tell everyone looking for anything horse related to check out this website. Thanks again! Tricia McCarthy

Thanks again for such great service.  Do you work 24/7 ?!  Anne Sands

I love your web site. I have sold my Arab gelding, trailer and I am selling now a saddle. Thanks for the great work. Lynelle Robertson

This is to inform you that my saddle sold...to a gal in Maine. Don't know how she saw it, but you certainly have readers from far and near. Than you again. Jean Ragland

Thanks, the ad looks great!  I appreciate your excellent customer service.  Laurie Lord

Please mark as SOLD! Sold in one day! Thanks for everything. K. Personius

Your service is absolutely TOPS. Thanks again. Kerri Porter

WOW! Thank you! Appreciate your 'extra effort'...and I thought customer service was dead. Liz Dain

Wow, thank you so much, Debbie! Customer service at its best. D. Notzon

You are awesome...so easy to work with. Thank you. P.J. Peralta

You guys are incredible with your dedication and great service!!! Thanks. I just bought a horse thru your site. Judy Goode

I put my ad for goats for sale in on Friday evening and sold them at 9sm the next day. Boy, you guys are fast. Thanks so much for creating such an effective web site. D. Cook

Thanks so much for your wonderful Internet service! We bought our mare through an ad on BAEN last March. We have loved her and had a blast owning her, but our needs changed significantly. With great reluctance, we decided to list her for sale, which we did last Thursday. We got four responses the same day, and made plans with a couple to come meet her two days later, on Saturday. They came over and rode her, loved what they saw and felt, and by today, Monday, they made the final arrangements to buy her and pick her up. They had been perusing your ads every day for a horse like ours, and when it showed up, they acted. I had to put up a SOLD! notice today because of all the additional inquiries we've been receiving. BAEN was the facilitator for all of us, providing a service that was efficient, free of mistakes, and free of cost (since I used a text-only ad). I know that our fast sale was probably the exception, and we feel especially lucky. But clearly, you have a huge audience of interested horse buyers and sellers for every category. For reasonably priced pleasure horses such as we own, I can't imagine using any other approach to buying or selling a horse in the Bay Area! J.Dommer

My item listed in minutes. I got several responses within minutes. AND it SOLD within 24 hours. Thanks Bay Area Equestrian Network! Amy

Thank you! Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your site! I have sold many things, and always remain in contact with the new owners of the critters. I have never had a bad experience! Melissa

This is three horses sold out of four ads total that I have placed on BAEN. All three sales were directly taken from responses to this website. The longest sale took three weeks and the shortest was twenty four hours. Thanks for such a useful resource....Misty Tracy

I thank YOU for the amazing job you do! How DO you do it all??? You are ALWAYS so helpful and responsive! Need a thank you from a satisfied customer??? You got it! THANK YOU! Jean Hayes

I want to thank you for all the wonderful service your website provides horse owners and horse businesses! I will continue to use your site often as a horse owner. Angel Lance

Fast and easy. A great way to reach equine friends. Thanks. W. Moe

Thank you Debbie. I will tell people to advertise on your site you are so helpful! Mimi

Hello thanks to the awesome web site had tons of inquires.. I sold my paint mare. You offer a great and informational web site keep up the great work. Danielle

Thanks for responding to my email. I thought this was a scam but I wasn't sure. I'm kinda new to this selling stuff on the internet. Thanks for your quick response. I love the BAEN site and in glad they have people like you around to help people like me. Thanks again. Melanie Gavan

Just want to thank you for letting people use your website to buy and sell. I recently placed an ad for an old saddle and bridle after learning about BAEN from a local tack shop, and had a sale within two weeks. Also, you answer questions really fast. I am totally pleased with the service and the results! Loretta, San Francisco

Sold my horse trailer. Put my add on in the evening of the 16th had my first of 15 calls by 8:00 am the morning of the 17th, and received 11 e-mails the 1st day. TRAILER SOLD BY 7:30 pm ON THE 17TH...LESS THAN 24HRS.....GREAT! M.Stalcup, Clayton

Your classifieds are the best. This is the second time I have sold something through you, the first was my mule, and now the corral panels. Both times I had a response before I could log off the computer, and both times the first response bought my "item". Thanks! S. Robbins

Not only did my saddle sell but also, I am having success placing my rescued pigs. I was't sure how well BayEquest would work for these items, but I got great response almost immediately after placing my ads. My saddle actually sold locally to someone who would have never known it was available if I hadn't posted on BayEquest. Thanks again, Suzanne Reed

I recently placed my '01 Trails West GN trailer for sale on your website. I was amazed at how fast it sold and I had several additional interested parties. I placed my ad on July 4th and on the 5th I had a deposit and the buyer was so excited to find exactly what she was looking for. Thanks for making it so easy to get the information out to people. Rose Bishop, Granite Bay

Just a thank you for having such a wonderful site! I just sold my 1993 Circle J Royale Spirit Horse Trailer (2-Horse) on your classified section and it was sold in one week! I had many inquiries but since this trailer was very special to me and held so many wonderful memories I wanted it to go to a special home as the horses that rode in it. This surely happened! A very special woman who had so much in common and was returning to horses after a break; just as I hope to do in the near future. Some people do not get attached to the "solid" material things but the trailer kept my horses safe and delivered them comfortably to their destinations. So thank you and thanks for the great horsey place to visit on the web! Valene

Thanks for helping me sell my trailer. I had expected it would take 24 hours to see the ad on-line but within 4 hours of placing it, I had an inquiry and by the afternoon the trailer was tentatively sold. Twenty four hours later I had a check for the asking price. Seven people responded to my ad within that period of time. Placing the ad couldn't have been any easier. I also must add that I bought my horse off of BAEN two years ago. I had looked at horses all around the Bay Area but found my guy only about 20 minutes from home. He has been all that I could have hoped for and more. Thanks, BAEN! P. McReynolds

Thanks, I have always had good luck selling a horse or equipment on your site. This particular horse was sold from the ad and a short conversation with the buyer on the phone . he bought the horse site unseen. Thanks again. Ray

I just placed my pony for sale with a photo and had a buyer within a week. Thank you also for the quick response to a access problem I was having. You responded and fixed my problem very quickly. Thank you. Tammy

Thank you for enabling me to sell this trailer in such a quick time period. Your site is one of the best to advertise in. I have found that I get more calls when I post ads w/your website. Thank you, Thank you, for having such a great website. Z. Lovett

Thank you once again for caring about people you've never met and meeting their needs. C. Lahti

I listed a 3 horse slant load 1994 trailer and within an hour I had a response and within 3 days I had NUMEROUS responses and offers and sold the trailer for my asking price. THANK YOU. Great service. C. Cady

We sold our truck in a week on BAEN and have had many inquiries for it because of the ad. We advertised it in other online sites but only got replies from BAEN. I never have any problem selling anything we have for sale on BAEN. It is a great site. Thanks, Susan Fontaine

I placed my ad with bayequest.com on 1/5/07. By Monday I had 9 responses of which 2 of the prospects were perfect. One family called from Redding and the other from Valley Springs and I am in Sebastopol. Today, Montana is on his way to his new home in Redding. Thank you for the medium to advertise our horses and to reach such a broad range of people. Thanks again and GREAT JOB on the web site. Mark Garner

BAEN is a great site. I bought a trailer and a horse through the site. I also think it's the best place to shop for equestrian properties. Keep up the great work. K. Nicholson

I love your BAEN site. I sold my cart and harness in less than a day. Thanks for giving horsepeople such a wonderful site and so much info. Wendy

Thanks for helping me sell my horse. I received lots of responses and it was nice to be able to update the add (moving it closer to the front) with only minor changes. I think this helped sell him. I wouldn't have had nearly as much show time as I got on BAEN and it was very cost efficient. Richard

I really like Bayequest so that I can focus on people in the area. That way I can keep in touch with our horses. Bayequest is one of my favorite sites to keep in touch, see what is going on in the area and read about local issues. You are very responsive and get back to questions very quickly and that is really appreciated for challenged folks like me. Thanks again for all the hard work and wonderful site. I really do like it. Lesley-Ann

Thank you for your excellent service. I received a response from the advertiser. I think you have put together buyer/seller for another successful transaction. Thank you, Floyd Reid

Just wanted to let you know that I sold my horse through your website, and actually received a lot more interest from BAEN than I did from Dreamhorse which is a national website. I was very pleased with the response I received through my posting on BAEN, and I wouldn't have found the perfect owner for my special guy without your website. I will be sure to use BAEN in the future should the opportunity arise! Thanks for providing such a great website that is so user friendly. A. Mullica, Roseville

Thank you. I just rented my trailer and pasture for $200 more than the advertised amount to someone who answered the BAEN ad! D. Benton

You guys are so great - such a quick response and I love this website! I even found a place to live with my horses on a ranch in Herald, CA! M. Francis

Thank you for the wonderful service you provide to all facets of the equestrian community. We will keep our finger on the pulse of activities in your area. M. Baccala

I had over 20 calls & emails. I could not have been more pleased. D. Foster

I decided to "go for it" and upgrade to a photo ad... it made an immediate difference in the responses I received. Not only did I receive more email and calls from interested buyers, but the quality of the prospective buyers was also very different. Thank you very much for your site. Today I sold my horse to someone who was exactly what I was looking for, and will provide my horse with a great home. I am very glad I upgraded to a photo ad, it made all the difference in the world. I will definitely use BAEN next time I am looking to buy or sell a horse. Thank you again. R. Daily

Hello, Just wanted you to know that I placed a text ad for Peaches and got only one response in a week. This week I added a picture and within minutes of you posting the picture I was flooded with e-mails and phone calls. In fact I was having trouble managing all the inquires. She sold the next morning to the first person that came to look at her. So a good picture is worth a thousand words !! Thank you. G. Davis

I love that BAEN has been such a great resource over these years. Not only in finding horses and livestock but also in sharing information so we can provide the best care possible. You are always quick to respond to peoples' emails and do a fantastic job managing the forums. I really appreciate all you do! Cheryl Markham

Wanted you to know that I found the perfect saddle through BAEN. I had been checking the "Used Dressage Saddle" listings for a few weeks, then decided to post my own "Wanted" ad, and eventually was contacted by someone who sold me a saddle that is just what I was needed! H. Mehan

I want to say that the results were amazing on selling my horse. I had two people call and try him and he was sold to the best place. They took him to a schooling show and he was covered in ribbons. Thank you so much for making my and the new owners dreams come true. You are the best! M. Jacobs, Moss Beach

Thank you for your wonderful website. When I decided to sell my horse, a friend told me about your website and I was so excited because I was living in the dark ages of the newspaper classifieds and feed store bulletin boards! I sold my horse in just 4 weeks. Posting the ad was easy and, since I plan to buy a new horse, I now have so much to choose from. You are the BEST! Diane

Thank you SO much... No wonder your site is SO popular! Only wish the National sites were as customer orientated! Many high-fives! Kimberly Outen

It is truly refreshing dealing with individuals who obviously care greatly about providing genuine customer service. Chris

I think BAEN is a great site and very reasonable. I had over 20 responses to my ad. Of course it helps to have a great item and a fair price! But for only $16 I sold the trailer. I also like how easy it is to make changes to the ad. You do a great job and a wonderful service. Margaret Elizabeth Leighton

Thanks for your great website! Once I put my requirements in the "wanted" section -- I had almost immediate results. I now have the trailer I've always wanted at a price I can afford! Thanks for having such a great website! L. Thomas, La Honda

Thanks to Bayequest I was able to get back into riding and owning horses again after a 17 year absence. It all started when I found your website and an employment ad for a working student. Then I bought my horses through ads on Bayequest. You have the best site and I log on almost everyday. Thanks. Carrie, Livermore

I have sold 2 horses and bought 1 horse on BAEN this year. I love having a website that is local horses and that is so popular there's a huge selection to choose from. Thank You! Kimber Thompson

I advertised my trailer on BAEN and sold it with in 24hrs!!! I have been trying to sell it for a month. I even spent $84.00 on one ad alone. Thank You BAEN. I will spread the word. Marie Wayt

Just like always, I sell my horse items quickly after I list on your board. I found a wonderful loving home for my horse, and they found her here at BAEN. Thanks again for a great and effective service. C. Garrity, Boulder Creek

I've always had great success through your web site.  I've bought and sold 3 horse trailers and 2 horses as well as numerous other ranch animals using BAEN.  Thanks for everything. Megan
Your site is really a godsend for people like me, and those who follow the "who is this horse" ads are real horsewomen. Marisa Tinsel

I sold my horse trailer using Bayequest and thought it was great!! I wasted A LOT of money using our local newspaper to run an ad but actually ended up selling my trailer through Bayequest. I wish I hadn't even run that ad in the newspaper - it was a total waste of money! I received inquiries almost daily from Bayequest and enjoyed "chatting" with people from all over. Cynthia, Turlock

This is the 3rd horse that I have sold on BAEN. I love the website and the economical ad space. Keep up the good work. I tell all my friends that this is the way to do it! It's also fun to "window shop" even when I am not in the market. Toni, Brentwood

I am really happy with your site...I am getting phone calls from great horse people...thanks for your help. C. Comegys, Reno, NV

I am so happy I listed my trailer on BAEN. I not only sold it, I purchased another you had listed!! I wanted to upgrade to a unit with larger living quarters and I called a party down south regarding their trailer and they were interested in mine. We made a deal and are both quite happy. Thanks so much, Janice Casey, Napa

I have used your sight to sell 2 horses, my trunk and now my trailer. It has been very successful for me. I was overwhelmed with the response I received from all the ads. Thanks again, Lynda Hansen

I have been extremely happy with all of the inquiries I am receiving on my Classified Ads. I sold my trailer in less than a week. Thanks BAEN for this great, free service to the horse community. Carolyn

Thank you, I sold my saddle within 24 hours with a free text ad! I even had other interested parties but the saddle sold before I even had a chance to get back to them. Also, I just sent in a Paypal payment for membership. Julie Ridley

I just wanted to let you know that I posted my photo ad for my '79 Miley 2-Horse trailer on Monday and we sold it for our asking price last night. So that was basically a three-day deal! I know you already know that BAEN works, but I'd thought I'd let you know that the secret is out! Thanks, again, for letting me modify my ad to say "SOLD!" Anastasia Burke

Thank you so much for your site and it's services. I am truly blessed with the results. I have sold all three of my horses in under a week. Pam Harris

I just wanted to say that your site is awesome. We put our trailer out for sale and sold it in like a week after it had been running in the paper for 2 weeks. We sold our horses through you too. Just wanted to say thanks. Jess

When I decided to sell my truck & trailer as a package deal I told my husband that I was going to try your site & your sister site SCEN first, as I have had great success with you. I had several people inquire, but one certain person in Nevada e-mailed and called me after searching your site. Well needless to say we sold her the package (thanks to your site) and even delivered it to her house. You not only sold my truck & trailer, but you brought two strangers together who will keep in touch as we formed a friendship. Thanks so much. Gayla Bennick

I recently sold my horse through Bay Area Equestrian Network. I had ads on several other sites and I think I received about 4 responses from all of them combined. I finally decided to place a photo ad. I was very surprised at the number of responses I received in just the first day. I was getting about 6 responses a day, for a week straight!

I'm very impressed with the results from your website. I sold my horse trailer quickly--within two weeks of listing with you. Kay Hitch, Palo Alto

Thank you - the site is wonderful. I sold my pony almost immediately to a wonderful new home! Christine Kefaliotis, Morgan Hill

Smooth red head has found a new home. We sold her the very next day! Thank you Bay Area Equestrian. Pati
Thanks to BAEN we received three offers for EXCELLENT homes for this horse the first day the ad was out. Lisa Marshall, Castro Valley

I just love your site! I have to tell you I look on it almost every night. I have found three of my friends' horses, plus mine on BAEN. Kimberly Scott, Livermore

Thanks BAEN! I appreciate all of your service and hard work.... I love my website... Andrea Papararo, Fairview Farm

I am thrilled with your site as I recently relocated to Bay and was in need of information regarding horses. Thanks. Cathy Crair, Fremont.

Would you please mark this one sold as well? Thanks again. Your website works wonders! Chris, Rough And Ready

I was just writing to let you know I've sold 2 out of 3 horses I have listed on your site. Thank you for your help. I also bought a horse off of your site, so keep up the good work. Thanks again. Susan Brooks

I have had horses for 38 years and rarely sale but needed to down size so that I can provide the attention to the few I have left. I first ran an ad in our local news paper, it was the only horse ad listed and I didn't get a response. Next I tried the Press Democrat and got a couple calls but nothing serious. My sons girlfriend ran an ad on Craig's List and again a few calls but no sale. Only 3 weeks on BAEN and they sold. I had enough calls that I was able to be selective in who they went to and am confident that both horses went to an excellent home. I thank you for your services and if I ever sale another horse I will list them through you. If or when, I go to purchase another horse down the road I know where I will look, BAEN, you're the best! D. Weakley, Napa

I just want to take a moment to show my appreciation for your CLASSIFIED ADS web site. I sold my horse yesterday, and most of my inquiries were from my ad with you including the proud new owner of my horse. It took only a month! I think this service you have is far superior to magazine ads which I did for a year with not nearly as much of a productive response. Out of the five I placed my ad with on the internet, your site is by far the best. It is easy to get around in and that saves time. Also being that I can place an ad for free is a real help on the budget. Thank you so very much for this service. K. Hernandez

First of all, let me tell you that BAEN is responsible for all of my happiness I now find in my life?Ysee a short 2 years ago, I posted an ad on BAEN looking for a horse & a trainer willing to work with an East Coast Greenhorn and turn his lifelong dream of owning a horse & riding like the wind?into reality. After only a day, a wonderful gal in Woodside answered my adand here I am now, two years later in January 2004, partners with a great Appaloosa named Tobie and more trails than I could ever hope to ride!! SO THANK YOU FOR THAT!!! Its a dream come truethanks to BAEN!!! Shell Manion, Burlingame

Please delete the following ad due to the fact that I've gotten tons of e-mail and lots of feeding suggestions. I'm going to try them all! My mare will be better in no time! Thanks Bayequest! You're a lifesaver to me and Myst!!! Meg, Orcutt

I have used Bayequest twice this year and have had great success. I sold a trailer and bought a larger one from an ad and sold a Quarter horse. The response is very good. This is an excellent way to get the word out. The site is very easy to use. Thanks. Laura, Sacramento

I love your website and think it is the best place to advertise sale horses, services, etc. Keep up the good work! Lee

I had listed my cart on Ebay two weeks ago for $299 with no reserve and couldn't get a single bid, but when I listed it with BAEN it sold right away! Thank you so much! Karen May

Thanks, the response to your web site and my ads have been terrific! Made the sales on the first day of showing to my first two interested buyers. Joe, San Francisco

Thanks, Debbie! You are always so helpful, I'm really impressed that you have the time to reply so quickly. N. Holmes

I wish the rest of the equine world was as organized and well put together as your site! Lorna Love

I'm a Web designer and student of IA. I just received your [automated] reminder and had to say ... "You guys rock!" Thanks. Lorie Yusem

Thanks for taking the time to ask to get through the Spamblocker. We appreciate your wonderful website, it is an invaluable resource for the equestrian community. The Davises

Thank you guys sooooo much for all your e-mails of information and renewal letters! I love the site and because of BAEN I have been able to meet new trail and show friends and get to travel out more! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my horses! Maggie Caudillo

To make a long story short, for the last 20 years I have tried off & on to contact an old friend. So two weeks ago was the first time I heard of BAEN. I saw the message board and said what can I lose by posting a message. Well, the friend I was looking for saw the ad and I will see her today for the first time in 20 years. Two weeks ago was also the first time she had ever heard of BEAN. So I just want to say thank you for being there and involved with the equestrian world. Thanks for helping me find an old friend from the past. Susan Chenore

Who would have ever know that so many people had such a big heart for a 30 year old pony that was night blind? She went to her new home today after many inquiries and offers to place her. Thank you for such a wonderful service! Your website has become a daily visit for me... Kathy Sanchez

Just wanted to say that a friend recently pointed me to your web site. I find it extremely useful, timely and easy to navigate. And great relevant content. Thanks! Richard

Thank you to all who responded to my need for a trainer for my Arabian Stallion. Everyone had great advice, and BAEN really works great. A. Lamberson, San Jose.

Thank you so very much for the advertising you allowed me. I sold both my appy, my pony and my trailer - I received the amount I requested and all in a very short time. Thank you so very much. Joanie, Rescue

I got lots of responses from advertising with you ....I would definitely use Bayequest again. Kim Pribble

Just a word of thanks to your site, I can tell you I spend too much time (not really!) just loving the things on here. Many areas have helped me, chat room, ads for horses, vehicles. Please let your users know if there's something we can do to keep this happening, it's very, very enjoyable. Ann Kirby

Thank you so much for your wonderful web site. I have sold more horses off of your site than any other. Thank you! Ingrid Smith, Forest Ranch.

Unbelievable! We sold our horse IN 13 DAYS thanks to bayequest.com! The wonderful buyer was checking your site everyday! I have told all my horsey friends about you! Thanks for the great site! Julie Belanger, Morgan Hill.

Thanks for providing such a terrific website. I listed my mare last night and have sold her because of your ad this afternoon. What a way to reach so many different shoppers. Money well spent in my book. Misty

Just listed another item on the BAEN site and as usual, I sold it right away. I got a response within hours and sold the item to the first person that came. I never have a problem selling anything on BAEN. Thanks for the great site. Susan Fontaine, Placerville

I did get a very good response from my ad. I will highly recommend the use of the BAEN to people in the future. Thank You for providing such a good service at a very reasonable cost. Richard Fogel

Thank you very much...this is immensely helpful. Great service that you are providing!!! Karla Kaley

Thanks to BAEN, I sold my trailer to the first lady who came out. She drove for 4 hours to buy it! I received over 10 inquiries in less than 24 hours. Thanks!!! Sharon

Thanks for such a wonderful site! I sold my truck within days of posting it, to the first person who came to see it, great truck, great buyer, great website! Sue

BAEN is the best place to buy and sell trailers. I had fifteen inquiries on the trailer in one day, and it sold last night for full asking price. Julie Nelson, San Ramon

Thank you so very much for assisting me in the sale of my trailer, After only 6 days and several e-mails later to a variety of inquires, I successfully sold my trailer to the 2nd person who looked at it, for the asking price!. Your web sight is terrific. Thanks again for being there for all of us!!!!! Dayle Kuhn

I'm not much on chat rooms (in fact, never been in one) but your message board is great fun and very informative. Thank you for your kind and timely reply. It is indeed rare to receive a human response when inquiries are made these days. Thank you again, you've established a satisfied and loyal visitor. Carolyn Chapman

I think you have the best-run website this side of Amazon.com! I wouldn't visit nearly so often if it weren't such a well organized, easy to navigate site. And I can't tell you all the things that have come from visiting your site. I've found a couple of old friends, one of whom gave me my wonderful mare and the other who managed to buy back her old mare that was not being properly "revered" in her new home - all because we were able to "chat" online! I found another friend/former employer through your site too - so that's three friends that I hadn't seen in over ten years. I just placed a note on one of the boards and voila I had a response in a day or so from someone who knew where each person went. Amazing. And very few (if any) horses for sale in Idaho or Missouri. I hate that. When I was looking for a horse trailer, all those websites led me to "deals" 1000 miles away! And may I say that you are flippin' amazing. You had time to answer my somewhat trivial email in minutes. Have you thought about running for office? We could use some efficiency out there!!! Thanks again. Katie.

You guys do a phenomenal job with the BAEN website, and that compliment is coming from someone who does website design and knows what a challenge it is to maintain a well-functioning, well-organized and user friendly website. Lucy

Bayequest was a wonderful pipeline to get my horse advertised. He did sale to a bayequest user and not only did I find an amazing home for Tyson, I also made some new friends to ride with. This is a wonderful website for horse lovers. Thanks!

I have sold many horses thanks to your website. I have told so many friends that use you and are now members. If I ever want to sell or advertise anything you website is always the first I go to. Melanie, Oakdale

Got a reply right away. Thanks, BAEN. Great service. Sandy Hayes

Although I live in Texas, your website looked like one I wanted to post mine on. Thank you! Melissa Park

This is the third horse I have sold through BAEN in the last four years and I have also bought several horses through BAEN. Your service has revolutionized horse sales for the benefit of both buyers and sellers. All the legitimate responders to my ads have been great people and the people I have purchased horses from have been very honest and caring. I know my horses have gotten wonderful and responsible new owners. BAEN has made it possible for skilled amateurs like me to reach a wider market formerly only available to professionals. Thanks again for providing such a great service. Joellen Oslund, Castro Valley

I just wanted to say thank you for running my ad for employment on your board. We are located in Arizona, but are getting a really good response from people all over the world not to mention the USA. This board really works! Keep up the good work. John Edmonds.

Wow, I appreciate your quick action. Thanks again for running a quality web site and for your service. Teri Crowhurst

Thanks BAEN. I'm a first time user, non-member. I went through the exercise of filling out my ad application and was down to the point of paying for the ad when the computer advised me that the page had expired!!!! I am a stubby pencil /note paper guy in a cyberspace world. Lo and behold, you came through with an email advising I had made the grade but just needed to pay. You guys have your act together, Thanks, and I will let everyone in my network know you are professionals. Keep up the good work. Dave Gaskins

It's been such a pleasure working with you, and I appreciate your easy blend of heart and professionalism. Kerri Lake

I just want to thank you for posting possible email scams. I almost bought a car from California and I live in St Louis. The email the scammer sent me was almost word-for-word to the one you posted about a horse trailer! So, thank you, thank you, thank you! You saved me $4,000 bucks! Rick

I think you do a wonderful job. I go to other equine sites sometimes when I can't find something, but they are never as good so I return "home" to BayEquest. You're VERY user oriented and we appreciate it! Diane Davis

Although we have never met personally, I wanted to wish you a very happy vacation. When I, or we the general public, look at BAEN or SCEN, I think we might loose site of the personal nature of what you have built. BAEN and SCEN provide a very integral community service to all of us. I thank you for all your hard work, many hours and the vision you have been guided by to provide us with BAEN!! Christine Amber

I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for your prompt response and exceptional professionalism. Customer service isn't what it used to be and your kindness and information has given me encouragement. Thanks to your email, I will remain a faithful user and promoter of your website. With respect and appreciation, C. Ortiz

Your response was impressively fast, and the information has completely addresses my concern. If you are the owner, I am sure this business will thrive. If you are an employee, they ought to triple (at least!) your salary and bonuses. Kamran

I would like to renew my membership. My initial impulse was that I have been trying to drop unneeded monies I have been paying for things I do not utilize -- so as memberships, etc come up for renew, I have been sending similar emails stating I am not interested in renewal. After thinking about your site - and everything it has to offer for horse lovers - for free - I realized that this truly is a wonderful website - and even if I am not interesting in selling anything at this time -- I most certainly do feel that this is an extremely worthwhile source of information and support for horse enthusiasts , which I would like to support. Please DO renew my annual membership - it is a small bit of thanks that I can offer to this wonderful site. Thanks, C. Bonsack

I don't know how often you hear about this, so I thought I'd share ... I just finished reading the note you forwarded about stolen saddles and wanted to tell you how much what YOU have created has come to mean to me... the whole "larger riding community" ... it's fantastic. Someone at my barn was checking out my trailer and asking general trailer-purchasing questions. She asked where I got mine, and I said "Bay Ar ..." and she finished "ea Equestrian Network" :) ... EVERYONE knows about it, and everyone knows to go check there first. Most of the websites I do, of course, are horse-business related (cuz that's what I wanna do!), and I recommend to ALL of them that they should get a business membership with BAEN. Some of them actually listen to me :)... Anyway, I know that I only see a sliver of what you do cuz I get overwhelmed when I peruse your whole "site" too long, but wanted to make sure you knew that more than one person really appreciates what you have created. What fantastic vision and courageous implementation. Ellyn Schumacher, Mountain View
