    I was thinking the same thing. No offense OP but I wouldn't pay to lease this pony, especially if required to provide full care. Where I'm from only seasoned show horses are leased for a fee. Personally if I were you and really wanted to get someone riding this pony I would drop the fee altogether.

    I'll see what I get. He would be a fabulous show pony. But I don't have the time to go off & show him. My trainer really likes his movement, and abilities. So, if I don't get any offers I'll reduces the price to like, $25 a month + they pay full care. If he does become seriously injured, I will not make them pay those vet bills. I'll pay those. & with a lease, if they do a monthly thing, they can dump him on me anytime. If they sign a contract saying they want him for 6 months & decide to opt out of it, they can, since legally I own the animal, and they pay me, that's their loss. Just saying.

    I do agree that it will be difficult to lease him for a price when the standard is free lease with full care covered by leasee. If they are paying you, AND paying board and vet, etc, they are likely going to find a cheaper lease or buy one of their own for the same or less. There are literally countless good ponies for sale out there right now for $800 and less because of the economy. You will have to REALLY push his strong points to get him leased for those figures. I'm not saying it isn't possible, but your best bet would be get him to a show, in full tack, and get some professional looking pictures of him, and then hope that some pony clubber needs a project for the year. Good luck!

    If you don't have the time to show him, how are you going to have the time to retrain and show an OTTB?

    I didn't say I was going to do that.. I have farm matters I need to attend to.. I need to show some of my goats, sell a few, buy new fence, etc. It's a lot of work. I want Phillip to get attention, he needs to be ridden & shown. I want him to be loved by a little girl, that's my ultimate wish.. so could you just back off a little?

    So you forget all the plans you had to show him and buy a TB next year?

    I need help with my mom, though. She's afraid he'll hurt someone if he spooks bad. She doesn't want a beginer to take on him.. But I wouldn't let a beginer lease him.

    I want to lease him out, so I can buy a TB mare for my own purposes. And eventually I would sell Phillip, or permanently (spelling? Sorry, mno spell check on this laptop) lease him. I want to get Savannah leased out in the next few years, too.

    Reading posts you've started on a public forum is not in any way, shape or form 'stalking'. I thought I had read posts by you before, but I couldn't remember what you had said.

    I'm going to be honest and mean this in the nicest way possible. I agree that your chances of leasing this horse for a fee is slim. I would do a free lease. PM me if you would like a copy of a lease contract that I use.

    Your ad photos from the other thread are horrid. Know your target audience! To me it seems like hunter/jumper lesson pony? Pull his mane (the long chop is ugly and not breed or discipline appropriate) clip his bridle path and his legs and give him a good bath before you take photos or video. Your tack should be clean and saddle pad washed. Barrow a bridle.. riding in a halter for a sale photo/video is tacky. If you do not want him ridden in a bit, then get a side-pull for your bridle they are cheap. You also need to look your best. Clean breeches, boots, belt and a polo type shirt. You are almost there, just tuck in the shirt and take off the loud jewelry. Your helmet is fitted incorrectly and your hair needs to be pinned back or tucked neatly in your helmet. I say this because sloppy makes you and your horse look incompetent.

    Your ad needs to be shorter and more organized.

    Paragraph 1 - Suitability

    "Prince Phillip", other known as "P" is a 10 year old Arab/Quarter Pony cross currently ridden hunter/jumper but has some western training as well. Phillip jumps 2'3 and is been ridden currently 2-3 times a week in a cross country type environment. Phillip is great with leg cues, neck reins (doesn't need constant direct pressure), and will work off of vocal commands. He can w/t/c bareback through trails, but needs an intermediate rider. <Here is where you would add comments about ground manners, clipping, loading ect..> Keep it short and to the point. Get them to come see your horse and you can talk more in depth about him there.

    Paragraph 2 - Health
    Phillip is UTD on all shots and coggins and <here is where you would talk about any special needs or soundness issues><end on a good note> Phillip is an easy keeper with great feet and is kept barefoot.

    Paragraph 3 - Lease terms

    Philip is offered as a free lease (recommended) to an intermediate rider only and is not for sale at this time. Lessee must provide a safe and loving home with in the state of Virginia preferably with-in a 50 mile radius.Lessee will be responsible for all board, farrier and veterinary cost during the lease. Lease length and other terms are negotiable.

    Serious inquiries only please.

    <Contact info and best time to reach you here>

    Can you tell I'm anal about this? Good luck!
