My lease is like a partial lease..kind of.
Currently I pay $50 a month for riding once or twice a week through the winter. After winter is over I'll be (hopefully) going out just about every day, so I'll be paying the "full-lease" of $100. The horse I've been leasing is a finished barrel/trail horse, that I'm working on reining and roping with, that also has a few..issues. So I'll be paying $100 for basically a full lease, but I don't pay for farrier, feed, hay, etc. Only thing I'm responsible for currently (that has changed since I first started leasing), is that if the horse is injured and on stall rest, I'll be there atleast every other day for hand walking/light lunging. I'm currently not responsible for anything but that, which I'm definitely happy with. It's an on-farm lease, but I'm allowed to take her basically wherever I want as long as I pay BO/Owner trailer fee. We all show a lot, we do off-farm trails sometimes, and we occasionally go to the park arena for practice. If I want, I could take her to fair for the week as long as I paid to stay there (which includes a camper and the rent), because her horses aren't allowed to be left unattended, and she doesn't go to the fair to watch them for me.
I, personally, think it's an amazing deal. I basically have my own horse without all of the costs. :p It's probably not the best to compare with actually having my own horse, financially, but it's great for what I can afford, at a private barn without all the drama I've seen at others. :p
