What I would like is person X has been working/showing horses since they were a kid. Now person X is coming to my city to go to college but can't afford to bring any of their horses here. So I lease them Cinny, they pay only half the board and work with him as much as they want...it gets them a horse to ride, it gets Cinny experience and work he needs and when it's all done I have a more rideable horse.
But I have this nagging feeling that I am asking too much and this is really taking advantage of someone when I should instead shell out bucks to have a trainer work with him... but even if I pay a trainer, he will sit besides what the trainer does with him. And I really can't afford board and training on a horse that I won't be able to spend much time with for the next 6 months or so.
What do you guys think? I know some of you are college age, what is your view on this? I may not actually do it, I'm just...thinking... And I don't want to sell him just because I won't have more than maybe 5-6 hours a week to spend with him.
