^^ Me and my leaser don't have set days. She usually has a lesson on Monday but we just text each other to see what days work best for us during the week and go from there. :)

This was the same way with my past 2 lease horses before I bought Robbie. If you and the leaser get along, it's great being so flexible about days to ride. :) And usually the other person wants to compromise as much as you do. I wouldn't suggest getting a leaser that you don't get along with...you're just asking for a headache.

that's great! Wish I had that kind of flexibility too! I totally agree on being sure you get along with the leaser - makes it a lot of fun to lease when you can work together with the horse, and have open communication on whats going on during the weekly rides.

Oh gosh yes! My leaser always texts me after her lesson saying how wonderful Robbie was or if she had a great hack haha. And if she ever has a question/comment she comes to me first, just shows she respects me and the fact that Robbie is still my horse. :) I love my leaser haha.

I need a situation like this for my mare & me! I would never want to lease to somebody I couldn't get along with.

And to the person asking what I'll advertise her as (sorry forget who you were!) - I am not entirely sure yet as she is still green and IMO has potential for whatever I chose, and me being me I have not really set her in one particular direction yet, mostly due to her lack of time under saddle. I know she's definitely an english mount, however she is able to have a western saddle on her going for trail rides and what not (over summer my trainer took her out on a few western rides because this is what my boyfriend would like to do with her). I want to stick her in a few schooling shows over summer then go from there and decide which direction I really would like to take her in. Currently I am leaning toward hunters, though I have never done the hunters so I don't know a ton about it/the horses, but she has some great action so maybe some dressage or eventing. Dunno!

Didn't read all of it but the first and last page, skimmed the middle. For my lease we split the days (3 days for her, 4 days for me but he gets one day off of riding on my days) so we split all the monthly costs as well. We split farrier, board, feed, bedding, shots etc. so it comes to about $200 each. She just pays me her half and I cover paying all the different places/people and going out and getting supplies.

I pay for any necessary vet trips. She also has the option to show him, use of all my tack and I've offered her some of my days if she wants to come out more.

Unless you want to let her use more than 1/2 the days I think going halfsies on everything is a good idea. While I was skimming I saw you are thinking of asking for a leasing fee, what would that be for? From what I heard your horse is still green. Around here even for the most show broke horses, unless the actual barn is leasing them out, there is no 'leasing fee' just a break up of the costs of ownership. But maybe I mis-read.

No, I would not be asking a lease fee. I was only curious about why people do 1/4 of the horse's worth. I did not mean on top of anything, just to clarify. I definitely wouldn't charge a lease fee on top of splitting the costs as her costs are already high and I am iffy about that. I have just never personally seen any one who does 1/4 of the horse's worth or an annual payment so I had no idea why some people chose that over splitting costs. That's all!

Here's a little more perspective...I think having a good relationship with a responsible leaser who is a good rider and kind to your mare is just as important to the amount of money you get from it.

I am leasing a horse right now, his owner asked $225 for a partial, I told her that I could only afford $150. She decided to let me do it for that amount, because she knew that I would take better care of her horse than the other girl who came out to look at him. I know after meeting someone once its hard to make a choice, but after emailing a few times about past experience, horses in general, riding, etc, you can kind of get a feel for what kind of person they are and what they are looking for.

Also try to remember that its hard to find experience leasers who can pay $300+ a month, because those are the people who BUY their own horses, not lease them! :)

All coming from an experienced horse girl without a lot of money.
