Both of the horses I leased in the past were on their owner's property, so I did not have to pay board.
The only thing I ever paid was if the horse needed a coggins or health papers before a show (they commonly had them already, I also never had to pay for regular farrier/vet visits), entry fees, or if I needed a different bit or something for the horse.
So when most people say free lease do they mean they ride/show/use the horse for free, but have to pay board and every other cost?
