    Talking advice please =]

    well, I've been thinking really hard lately. I really really REALLY want to lease a horse. I've been riding for 5 years. I've just recently become devoted to it. I started cantering in january, I think I've gotten pretty good =] so I asked my trainer if I am expierienced enough to lease a horse, sadly she said no =[. Not like a huge NO but like "ehhhh wellll idk"
    but I figure I want to be prepared for when the day comes right?
    any random little pieces of information you would like to share that would help me out?
    thanks

    I don't know what your situation is, or why your trainer feels you aren't ready to lease a horse. I can only say that, when it came to my owning my first horse, for 20 years people told me all the reasons why I shouldn't do it. I finally ignored them all, got my first horse at age 40, and am really ticked off that I listened to any of them!!! Getting my horse is the best decision I've ever made. If you really want to lease a horse, do it. Find a horse that you're comfortable with and just do a one month trial. If it doesn't work out, at least you tried it.

    That is what's up right there.

    I would look at other barns to lease a horse. You can 1/2 lease, you can full lease.

    Your coach could be taking things slow with you, which is great - but one could be doing this while you are leasing your own horse.

    There are many people out there, who are in dire need of someone who would be willing to lease or 1/2 lease their horse - and a horse that could be an all round, been there done that mount - which would be perfect for you.

    Go out there, venture into the world of horses and see what other avenue's you can pursue.

    If there isn't a way you can own a horse (because most leasing is around the same as paying a monthly payment on a loan for a horse)... then leasing is the thing to do.. most barns have horses for beginers all the way to experienced... If it is something you really want to do than do it.. just make sure you stay confident in yourself and you don't have to take the horse full speed... even if you wanted one to just walk around on some trails... make sure that you get all the information about if something happens to this horse.. I leased my horse out one time and thank god before I did I made her sign a contract because she brought her back gaulded.. I was furious.. I made her pay for the vet visit for him to just look at her and make sure nothing else was wrong... You sound like you would never do that.. but just make sure that if something happens to the horse and it isn't your fault that you don't get blamed...

    If you ride for 5 years(!!!) already then HOW you are not ready to lease the horse yet? I just don't get it. If you feel comfortable with this particular horse and the owner is ready to lease, then why not? Or indeed you can just look at the ads around and lease or half/lease the horse from someone else with the request of trial.

    How many times/week do you ride usually? If just 2-3 and it's your plan then it's better to go with half-lease: it's usually 2-3 rides/week and it's cheaper than the full lease.
