OOOPS, ok,sorry, I missed that! Then I'd have you come out and ride the horse you were interested in and if you hit it off and I agreed with your horse keeping, riding, discipline philosophies, I'd write up the lease. I'd do a full lease, with the proviso the horse be kept in full board & training during the lease at an approved facility and you'd be required to carry Mortality, Major Medical and Loss of Use with me as Payee. Unless you wanted a National Champion I probably wouldn't charge any kind of lease fee for the duration. I'd also require that I be allowed to drop in and check on the horse and get fresh pics at least quarterly.

What kind of horse or discipline are you looking for?

Basically, a horse that would be steady enough for me to learn to ride on. I'm not a very good rider so something that has been there, done that a few times.
I know if I were to BUY a horse like that, itd be a pretty chunk of change.

Too bad you're not a little more advanced in your riding. I have a horse whose personality is what you're looking for but not at the training level needed for someone who needs a lesson horse.

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

It definitely is! I commend that horse owner for being so brave.. I'm still trying to soften to the idea of showing my horse.. or taking him out for trails..

$100 for twice a week? that's pretty nice!

But I still prefer having my own horse.. I really like paying the bills :P

Actually it's $50 for twice a week, $100 for any day I want for any amount of time unless she let's me know a week ahead of time that she needs the horse. :p
I love it, haha. I'd like to pay my own bills too, but it's just not a feasible plan at the moment..the economy is crap and I'm lucky my mum's "wasting" a hundred, haha. She's not horsey at all, and if I didn't tell her that I can't just pick riding back up like I can bike-riding, she wouldn't wouldn't have paid past the two months my dad promised me lease money for before he died. :/ She still doesn't really understand that if I want to achieve what I do that I can't quit riding for any amount of time ;;
