Leasing/Half leasing a horse?
I am switching back to riding English, and the barn I am going to is a boarding barn. I'm going for my first lesson on Saturday :3
I was kind of thinking, when I get up to jumping 3 ft (yes I know that is a long way off; I was jumping 2 ft when I did English before), I know that I will probably not be able to jump lesson horses that high. Through a similar post, I got the idea of possibly leasing a horse when I start jumping higher. I was thinking more along the lines of half leasing; I'd like to go the cheaper way of lease for my parents' sake.
I get out of school at 3:35 and my dad picks me up at 3:45. I go to his office everyday after school, and his office is about 20 minutes from the barn. The barn is 30 minutes away from my house. Being semi-close to the barn could give me the opportunity to possibly ride more often, during the week, if my parents will allow.
What are the details and costs of leasing/half leasing? What is it like? I am thinking ahead (way ahead) about this so I can learn about it now. So what do you do when you lease/half lease? What do you pay for?
Also: I'm not sure if they lease at the barn, hopefully they do!
