It doesn't imply such a thing... it means that the most the rider could take is 3 days per week to ride. No more than that without permission.

Minimum to me means that you need to be riding at least 3x a week, but feel free to do more.

I guess it's about clarifying what you are communicating.

The Lessee is allowed a minimum of AT LEAST 3 days riding as specified (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday) and will sometimes be given other opportunities by the Lessor when available.
or just leave out min/max completely...theres nothing wrong with the phrasing by just saying

"the lessee will be allotted 3 days of riding (Monday Wednesday and Saturday) for riding, and will have opportunities for additional riding time as approved by the lessor"

I personally like this^^^ much better than max/min because it leaves less wiggle room for misinterpretation.

then lessee cant say well you said I can ONLYEVER have 3 days. or you said I can have a MINIMUM so that means I can have lots and lots more riding days etc etc etc.

My recommendation...add in a waiver form and have it signed..similar to one your barn may use rather than stating it in the contract itself..or, do both.

Also, when I did a lease, I specified the equipment required to be used for trailering..head bumper, wraps or boots etc. and specified who was allowed to trailer. Specified that if the approved were not available that I had to meet and approve of the alternate and see what they were going to use to trailer.
