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.:hi:

A better thread title would have been Boarder or board?


Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
