    Get insurance on the horse in case the unthinkable happens to it, like it did with me.

    Put everything in writing. EVERYTHING.

    1. Contract
    2. Insurance
    3. Find the right person to ride your horse

    Also, what are good prices for it ?
    She's a Mustang, but was caught as a foal.
    About 14.3 hands.
    Chestnut, 9 yr old. Never bred.
    She's a trail horse, great with kids.
    No health issues.

    How broke is she?

    That would determine the price to lease. The more she knows, then the higher you can charge.

    She's broke very well. Ride her out alone, trails, highways. She's good.
    She doesn't know any special moves. She's just a good trustable trail horse.
    My 6 and 8 year old cousins can ride her out on trails with no problem.

    I checked on insurance, found a decent one so will be doing that.
    What should be on the contract? Other than specifics we come up with ourselves. What are normal things that should be said ?
        07-13-2012, 03:00 AM
    What they can do with her, when they pay, WHAT they are paying for, how much they pay, whether they use your tack or not, who can and cannot ride (as in one person only or they are allowed others on but need waivers)

    If they are required to be there for the farrier/vet/blanketing. When they can ride, how many days, if they need to clean or replace anything, etc. If they need a helmet, if they can trailer them.

    Every little thing you can think of NEEDS to be in that contract. Including their contact info.

    And please have a liability clause. It's best if your lawyer writes it but you can do it yourself or pay a site to write it for you.

    Also it's liability insurance that you want. If you join USEF for $35, you can have it or you can get it from an insurance company.
