I pay $300 a month now, but I don't want the person to go up every single day to ride Sonny...I want him to have days off so he can rest and just have fun in his pasture. That's why I'm not having them cover the whole half of the board. As for vet and farrier...they MUST use the one I already have for him...my farrier is amazing and I'd never switch (unless he totally ruined Sonny's feet on purpose or something). For vet bills...I'd cover the shots, coggins, etc...but if they don't want to clean his sheath then they have to pay to get it done (normally I clean it myself).
Same here...negligence/injury is paid by the leasor...but I am going to set rules for jumping and trails, etc for Sonny's safety and their safety...no higher than 1 foot jumps (Sonny never picks up his feet while jumping with someone on his back and last time I did it, he rammed into the jumping poles and almost fell)...and for trails...they MUST be accompanied by at least 2 other people OR the barn owner
And I'd pay for any random injuries like him mutalating his face again...or hurting something in the pasture.
For colic, I'd pay unless it was their fault (feeding him something he shouldn't have had...or too much of something).
Yep, I only want the leasor to ride...not a friend
Should I also stress in the lease that Sonny is to be outside in his pasture no matter what type of weather...and not in his stall?
I paid $5000 for Sonny, but I'd like to be covered for mortality, colic, or any other surgery I'd need if the worse happens.
I'm not going to be that controlling or anything...the only time I'd really mention something is if I noticed something wrong with Sonny. I don't know for sure anyways if I'll be leasing him out to a friend or not...but I'd definately perfer it to be someone I know, trust, know how they ride, and know that they are capable of taking care of Sonny.
The only problem is, is my barn owner is anti-"lease any horse other than hers" so I might have to have someone besides those 3 girls lease him.
Do you think the things above that I listed is asking too much (like the jumping)? I never really jump with Sonny (I have only done it twice), and he doesn't enjoy doing it either...as for the trails, I want to make sure that they don't go out alone so they don't get hurt...also I doubt the barn owner will let them go out alone for her insurance wise.
