Airbnb-Inspired App & Website Adds Stabling Options In & Around the Kentucky Horse Park
Lexington, Ky. – April 17, 2017 – Staller, the Airbnb-inspired application that allows users to find housing for horses, will be introducing Kentucky properties on April 20, 2017. The mobile-based solution, co-founded by Arturo Ferrando (28) and Pablo Jimenez Godoy (25), has expanded its coverage to include stabling near, and at, popular competitions and equestrian facilities, including The Kentucky Horse Park. Staller is available for free download at the App Store and on the website (www.stallerapp.com).
Launched in December 2016 in conjunction with the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida, Staller was an immediate success. With over 2,000 stalls listed within the first two months, Ferrando and Godoy quickly and strategically expanded the boarding options.
“We knew that Lexington would be our next focus,” stated Godoy, a tech entrepreneur who grew up riding. “The Kentucky Horse Park hosts top international competitions that run from May through October, and many of the world’s best riders will have their horses competing We knew that the immediate success of Staller was in part due to the enormous number of horses and ponies that compete in South Florida. We expect the same need for stabling in Lexington.”
According to 2016 reports, there are more than 320,000 horses based in Kentucky, and over half of these are involved in showing and recreation. In excess of 194,300 Kentuckians are horse owners, service providers, employees and volunteers. The state’s horse business produces goods and services valued at $2,3 billion annually and the industry directly provides nearly 52,000 full-time jobs.
“The A-Circuit competition calendar, which features important classes and big money purses throughout the year, dictates where the equestrian world be based,” explained Ferrando, an accomplished show jumping competitor and businessman. “Staller fills a real need for boarding options where ever big competitions take place and with Kentucky Spring Horse Show kicking off on May 10th, we know there will be a need. Local properties are listing stalls that are available and competitors are already taking advantage of what Staller has to offer.”
Whether you need a stall for a night, or a full-service equestrian facility for an extended period of time, Staller offers a streamlined process by connecting those looking to stable their mounts to unique boarding options at any price point. “Staller has given more transparency to the market and also facilitates the process of stall rental,” finished Godoy. “It is beneficial to not only the competitors looking for stabling options but supports local businesses and the community. It is a win-win for all concerned, especially the horses!”
