    Lease to own, hmm.. well as far as I know, leasing is renting. There are many kinds of lease. Free lease, half lease, partial lease. Usually you half lease before you get a chance to "own" and I'm sure it varies. Some may give you a discounted price for leasing first, some may hand the horse over no questions asked.

    Free lease varies.. you pay nothing and you ride or you get the horse on your own property, do whatever but aren't responsible for any charges.

    Half lease you rent the horse 50/50. So it gives you a more realistic idea of what the charges for keeping the horse are. A ball-park figure. Sometimes you pay half of the vet bill, half farrier, half food cost, half maintenance (like buying equipment, training costs, special tests, show fees etc.) It varies as well depending on the contract.

    Partial lease is the ideal choice for someone that can't afford to invest in a horse entirely but still wants riding time. Partial leases range from 1-3 days a week average, you pay a smaller payment (not 50%!) of what it costs to keep the horse and whatnot. There are conditions and restrictions that are outlined in the contract.

    PLEASE do not enter a lease without a contract!!!!!!!!! BAD idea!!

    Good luck!

    Like others have said it is an arrangement between you and tge owner where you pay an agreed amount, or cover the costs, of a horse and in return you can ride it however much you agree on.

    There are, in my mind, two sides to leasing. On one hand, you are covering the costs of a horse, and keeping it in work and possibly training it and raising its value yet inevitably you get nothing from this time and quite likely spend possibly thousands on upkeep. Even if you end up with a well trained horse it can be taken away from you whenever. Yes, you could cintest a contract but who would go that trouble for an extra couple of months. For this I don't really like leasing.

    The other side is that horses are expensive to purchase especially, depending on location, those suitable for inexperienced riders. To lease a schoolmaster can be extremely benificial as ut can teach the rider and handler so much. When youi outgrow the horse, in height or ability you don't need to go through the long process of selling. Leasing can a also be a great.trial run to ownership prior to forking out loads of money. Just decide what you want and what its worth to you, and always have a contract.

    Leasing to own would be the same as paying the horse's purchase price through installments. It isn't done a lot AFAIK.

    I am "free leasing" my horse Lola, but I pay for EVERYTHING like she's my own horse and she's at the boarding facility I want. The contract I signed with her "owner" states that she can only take Lola back if I'm neglecting her. She will be my horse forever unless I choose to give her back ;) it works out great in my situation because I'll be going to college in a few years, and haven't decided if I want to take my horse with me or not, so if I choose to not take her I can just simply give her
    Back so it works great.
