JACKSONVILLE, FL February 25, 2017 Staller, an airnbnb-inspired application for housing for horses, has expanded it’s offerings to include properties in Jacksonvilleand Duval County as well as other areas in the North East of Florida. This free, web and mobile-based solution is available at the App Store and on the website (www.stallerapp.com).
Co-founders Arturo Ferrando (28) and Pablo Jimenez Godoy (25) have extended Staller’s coverage to include listings near horse-focused communities and top equestrian venues, including the Jacksonville Equestrian Center at the Cecil Commerce Center.
In March alone, the area will draw thousands of horses from around the country that will be on site to compete at the different shows, such as the Breed Open Horse Show (3/4), the NBHA Shamrock Showdown Barrel Race (3/12), the First Coast Classical Dressage Show (3/24-3/26) and the Florida Reining Horse Show (3/25 & 3/26).
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. “The immediate success of Staller, in part due to the enormous number of horses and ponies that spend the season in South Florida, has allowed us to quickly expand,” explained Godoy, a tech entrepreneur and CEO of WeKanCode. “Jacksonville has a thriving equestrian community and top notch facility. Adding properties in and around the center was a natural next step in our expansion and is already gaining popularity.”
According to 2015 statistics, there are over 9.2 million horses in the U.S, with 300,000 located in the Sunshine State. The Florida horse industry has a $6.5 billion economic impact on the gross domestic product and generates 72,000 jobs for locals.
“Staller is like airbnb for horses, explained Ferrando, an accomplished show jumping competitor. “We saw that brokers were the only option for renters and we wanted to offer more boarding choices and transparency within the industry. Now that we are available in Florida, we plan to introduce the app to new markets, including Kentucky and North Carolina.”
Staller allows the user to search by location and price point, see photos and learn about the facility, location and availability and then can book online with a credit card. For further information go to www.stallerapp.com.
