Question Co-Leasing

I don't even know what I'm going to ask is even a good idea. I'm just trying to work some things out.

Currently I lease my horse out. There are two reasons why I do this. First of all is that I really need help paying for his bills. Second of all, there is no way possible that I can ride him as much as he needs to be.

Is it a bad idea to have 2 people lease him? The girl that I have now is great but as of lately she has been riding him less and less due to work, etc. I've also been having more financial issues. I am trying everything possible to be able to keep him and keep him in his current living situation. I know if it came down to it, my mom would help me out but I'd rather not ask her.

Any input would be great.

Thank you!!

I don't see why it would hurt. If you can work it out with your current leasee, and find another good match, I wouldn't see a problem. Your horse will just get more experience, and you'll get the help you need. I say try it.

Nope nothing wrong with that at all. Just make sure their schedules with your horse don't clash.. that's the tough part :P

Just make sure no one is misbehaving (stealing tack, feeding your horse too many cookies, letting the horse get away with stuff) cause it'll get ugly fast.

And have contracts!!

I would go for it, there's nothing wrong because, I believe, your leasers aren't showing. However, if you can get your current person to do a half lease where she has to pay for her riding time even if she doesn't come out, that might work well too.

Right now my leasee does pay even though she doesn't ride. It makes me nervous because if I were her, I wouldn't pay for something I wasn't using. I don't know, maybe it doesn't bother her?

So my trainer doesn't know if this is a good idea or not. She thinks that Dancer may get confused with multiple riders (me, her, my mom, current leasee, and possible new leasee.) Any more opinions?

Puddingtat as long as they can ride, then it's a good learning experience for your horse. They wouldn't get overwhelmed.

But if they have trouble (kicking, yanking, bad seat, etc.) then it won't be such a good idea.

My only concern with this: That is a lot of people who would be riding your horse... if you have two people leasing your horse, PLUS you and your mom ride her... how will all of you find time to ride? As someone who has previously half-leased a horse, it was standard that I was guaranteed three days per week. So between two people leasing your horse, that means she's reserved for those two people six days of the week, leaving one day for you and your mom to ride her if you chose to not give her a day off.

We require those leasing to take one lesson a month. Keeps the owner up on how the horse and rider are getting along.

The more riders on the horse, the more likely it will be to have confusion. Yes. If all riders have a different approach. HOrses can deal with this just fine. But, if you are trying to erase a bad habit, or sharpen certain behaviors, you must have all participants on board. For example, be sure that all agree not to allow grazing under saddle, or to reinforce the "halt" command with a backup if necessary, or to reprimand any bad ground manners , or . . ?

And, you may need each person to commit to certain days, and not change without mutual permission.

When leasing, the leassor pays a fixed amount, whether they actually ride or not. If they dont' ride, it's their own choice. Sometimes I pay for my leaase and only get a few rides in a month (due to bad weather), other times, I ride a lot. Them's the breaks.
