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.
