If I saw an ad for someone who wanted to lease their horse for the cost of board and 1/2 the farrier, I would expect that the owner wants to keep the horse where it is.
If I was looking to lease out one of my horses, there is no way in the world that I would allow the horse to leave my farm but many people do. In the case where the owner would allow you to move the horse, again, if it was me, there is no way that I would allow a novice horse owner to be in charge of his care.
Typically a share lease means that you share the use of the horse. That may mean that you only get to ride several times per week on a regular schedule and under their guidelines.
Those are things to consider when looking at a lease. Oh, and BTW, I would never lease to a youngster - only his/her parents.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
