I have been wondering lately what would be better, leasing or buying my first horse? I have gone to camps before where you had to take care of a horse for a week and I do know what it is like, so I was wondering what would be better money wise and things like that. If I did lease, It would be full time. But, It would be nice to be able to buy a horse and keep him at my house. The only thing is that I would have to wait a while before I would buy a horse. The only place I would lease a horse at would be the barn I ride at, and I trust my trainer to tell me if I will be able to handle the horse for 6 months or how ever long I would lease him for. I have heard about people a leasing to buy kind of thing; like a house? Where you lease for 6 months to a year and buy the other half or so of the horse so you could keep him. I just don't want to lease a horse, and then have that be a waste of time. Help?
