Is it a good idea? What am I paying the owner for? Lol I mean if it was a great show horse and I was in it to do big shows then I can see why leasing would work.
But if it's just a beautiful trail mare... what are some good reasons to lease? A free lease with option to buy. Would be a great idea so you can see if you are compatible with one another.. Owner could change their mind after so long and take the horse back...
There is a beautiful mare that the owner wants to lease out with option to buy. I am considering it but am wondering why people would pay the owner per month to pretty much own their horse? She would be on my farm.. i'd be paying for everything.. so... ?? Am I missing something here?
I'm also afraid of falling in love with this mare and then her owner finishing college and deciding she wants her back. :( since she's not sure she wants to sell her.
Good idea? Bad idea? Thoughts??
