Back so it works great.

Country woman- It's free leasing because I got the horse for free, she's my horse but technically owned by someone else. I jut can't breed or sell her. I was very lucky though because a friend from my old barn was downsizing her 6 horses and that's how I got the deal.

it's a "free" lease because she doesn't have to pay the owner any fees. That's how every free lease i've heard of has been. Free doesn't necessarily = no expense. Just means no payment to the owner.

like I said, it's only "free" in reference to paying the OWNER anything. The person leasing the horse is responsible for ALL expenses but doesn't have to pay any additional fee to the owner for using the horse.

Example - I "free" leased my pony to a friend a few years ago. She didn't pay ME any money for the pony but she was responsible for the pony's maintenance (board, feed, farrier, vet, training, etc.) if she was to have been paying ME for the pony as well it would not have been "free". Does that make more sense for you?

imo, a partial lease is probably best to start - one where you pay for being able to ride/use the horse on specific days of the week. That way you aren't throwing yourself straight into the costs of "ownership" as you might in other circumstances.

If you were to free lease (as in the example I gave earlier), if the horse was to have something happen (colic? Injury? Etc.) YOU would be responsible for any vet/farrier bills. In a partial lease that would be spelled out as to who is responsible and I would recommend you making sure that the owner is listed as responsible for such things UNLESS you were the cause of said injury.

Just my opinion.
