Well, I can go and take care of him and see him, I just can't ride him. They are leasing for something to ride in lessons and have a couple of extra rides on him a week.

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.

I'm from Maryland and your prices are WAY too high. I live in South Carolina now and pay $200.00 a month to lease and I ride 3 days a week (12-16 days a month). I'd add to your rules:

Horse cannot leave the property
Helmets MUST be worn when mounted

Well, I think my price is fine. Especially considering someone just handed me a check for half of this month and all of next month yesterday! Lol. And if you look at some other barns and their prices, mine is pretty fair. And the girl will ride 3x a week also. :)

And those are included in my paperwork. =]

I didnt realize you did it by days and amount of riding and what not, the way i've always seen it is they pay board and vet fees/farrier and get to ride like it's their own horse....

I'd like to find someone to ride some of mine a couple days a week... i can't find anyone i trust... or they want me to pay them... no way....

Yeah, what you're thinking is a full lease - they get "free rein" of the horse/pony. I don't want anyone to ride him like he is their own. He's MINE!! Lol. I just want someone to keep him moving and pay his board. haha. The people who chose to lease him aren't my favorite people in the world, but she does well on him, so I'll just have to get over it.

It's easier for me to find people because I board him at a farm that gives lessons, so there are a lot of lesson kids that want to lease to ride more often. And there are people there who board their own horses who like to ride other ponies too. I don't trust these people very much, but they are nice - they don't want to jump him without their instructor there which is great because I don't want them to either! It works out really well.

Good luck trying to find someone to ride your horses.

I would never lease any of my horses, ever. Unless it's my trainer I refuse to ever let anyone ride my horses. That's how protective I am of them.
In your situation, because of the fact you are currently carrying another human being (kudos to you for actually taking time off riding for it)I think it's great idea especially since you have been trying to sell the horse.

The rules you have laid out are very good. You should talk to the barn manager, or your trainer about putting a contract together. They probably have one already made you can use.

Good Luck
