Your opinion on leasing?

I am leasing my pony out to one, possibly two lesson students. I have to - I am pregnant and can't ride and I have to stop working there soon (working there pays his board.) I have been trying to sell him, and i've been unsuccessful - I'm kind of happy about that. I am HOPING that after being ridden by a bigger variety of kids he will get used to it and not develop any bad habits.

Here are the 'rules:'
*No jumping unless in a lesson.
*Must ALWAYS ride with an instructor unless I am there or am aware that there is no instructor to ride with, etc,.
*None of your friends can ride him unless you ask first.

That's all that I can really think of. Anything else I should add to that list??

What it will cost:
2 days: $175
3 days: $200
(One of these days is a lesson day.)
His board is $175 and he doesn't have shoes on. He doesn't need his feet trimmed very often, but when he does, that costs $25.

Thanks.

- Who is to take care of any vet fees? What if something happens to the pony and the leasors are obviously responsable?
- Make sure to have a clause that the lease can be terminated immediately if any of your terms are breached, or you can terminate the lease with X days warning.


that's all I can think of for now :)

Both of those are covered in the agreement. =]

Thank you.

Yes, she mentioned that in first post. :) Farm board $175.

Just curious if horse will have certain health issues NOT because of the rider (got kicked, or allergy, or anything), can the rider require the money back?

You mean if he goes lame or something and can't work? I don't think I have anything about that in the agreement I typed up. But I can't ask them to keep paying to lease a pony they can't ride.

But, there is something in the agreement that says I am not responsible for any injuries and they have to pay for it if she gets hurt riding/handling him, basically. I would feel so bad if she got hurt riding him. I hope that doesn't happen!
