When we started leasing a horse we paid the horse owner's board which was $150 per month, half the farrier cost and half of any vet bills. There was a contract. It was a month by month basis, but had to give 30 days notice prior to ending the lease. We were able to ride anytime we wanted since the owner was never around. However, I have seen full ande partial leases before. Partial leases would allow multiple leasees on the one horse where you could only ride 2 or 3 days a week if it was you and another person. Full leases was where you were the only leasee and would comply to whatever terms the leaser put in the contract such as how often you can ride etc. If you do not board your horse, but have it at home, then you would probably ask for the cost of maybe feed instead of board. You can look on Craigslist to see what lease prices are in your area to get a better idea if you need to.
