| || | Leasing my horse?
I'm not sure if I am wanting to leave my horses or not. I have my own property, and I can afford my vet bills, and whatnot.... BUT what I do want is someone to ride them! Just ride them! I hate riding in the winter! And it's getting cold here! My mare is started and my gelding is green. So they need the saddle time. But also, they need someone with soft hands, but the two more experienced riders around my area who have offered to ride them get in their mouths too much. Almost causing my gelding to rear back, which he wasnt done since he was started under saddle. Is what I'm wanting to do is a lease, or am I going to just have to ask if anyone experienced wants to ride them? I'm a protective momma I guess, but they are very responsive to their cues and I hate to see any horse jerked around by the mouth.... So can I hold try outs to see if they ride to my liking? Lol They are still young and I don't want them to have a bad experience by an overly aggressive rider....
