Leasing my horse

Hey all im going overseas for 1-3yrs. I really don't want to sell my horse so I am thinking of leasing him out over that period. Im not quite sure what is involved like what sort of paper work goes through in leasing a horse etc.
Just wondering if I could get some advice from some people who have maybe leased out horses before etc.
Thanks a bunch!
All help much appreciated!

Just make sure you have a typed up, official contract. Include everything from who will pay for the vet to breeding/competing agreements.

Have an official contract so each person is very aware what they are responsible for. Emergencies, illness, injury, feed, board, suppliments, tack - if they can take the horse out of state and everything in between.

Sadly, I've never heard of a good leasing experience. :(

I'm sure leasing can work well as long as you have good communication between yourself and the person who's leasing. Definitely a document and a signature. One major thing to make sure is that during this time, the person doesn't change or add to the feed without you knowing. You don't want to come back and find your horse with a lot of lost weight.

I think best would be to board horse in boarding facility and lease him from there. This way you can also get input and follow-ups from BO. Plus the feed won't be changed for sure. And I agree: get contract with everything you can think of written down such as expenses (deworming, farrier, vet bills, emergency calls, etc.), WHO can ride a horse (only the leasing person, that person and his/her kids, anyone they want...), can be horse taking on trailer ride from barn or not and if so on what conditions, etc.
