    Post question about the proper use of a word in a sentence i heard

    I heard someone (an instructor for a class, actually) use this sentence and I'm not sure it was used correctly:

    "I will boarder my horse in a stable."

    Isn't it supposed to be "I will board my horse in a stable."?

    She was trying to explain the difference between board(er) and border.

    Thanks!

    TReynolds, welcome to the forums.

    A better thread title would have been Boarder or board?
