Does your trainer want to show your horse because they think it will benefit the horse in question, or does the trainer want to show your horse because maybe they don't have a horse to show on and think your horse would be a good fit. THAT is what is going to determine how it works, but either way I don't see you making any money off of it.

Like most others have said - if she is training your horse, you should expect to pay for the show as well as her time. The gal training my filly may take her to a couple shows in August, and help me campaign her through the winter/spring - I will be paying all associated fees and reimbursing her for her time. Winnings (if that happens) will be split 50/50. She's excited to show Zoe, and absolutely adores her, but I would never ever expect her to pay to show my horse, for my horse's gain.
If it's for her personal gain... Personally I would be grateful for the show experience and just have her pay her own entries, and I would ask that she signs off that she's liable for any injuries.
Get everything written down in a contract, and signed.

Did she say why she is wanting to show your horse? To me it sounds like a great opportunity for you to get some miles put on your horse without paying for it. If you feel the horse the rides being put on are really not necessary then I would have a chat with her so she doesn't use your horse. Overall tho, to me it sounds like a great learning opportunity for you and the horse.

.

Good point. She told me her horse will not be ready to show this year for one reason or another and she wants to use mines instead. She never mentioned a price. She's brought it up more than once now and I think it would be an opportunity for my horse, but just wanted to be sure on the whole process of letting someone else borrow *my horse.

By the way, she compliments my horse repeatedly and believes she is perfect for eventing. To me it doesn't make sense to bring up pricing if she hasn't and each time she asks she makes it seem as though I would be doing her more a favor if I lend her my horse. Maybe she will bring up a fee eventually, but so far she hasn't and a show is coming up soon, so she asked me again about using my horse.

Thanks for all the other responses.... I am taking note of all of them.
