You are a good rider. The owner would be thrilled to have you be her leassor. Once they know you won't hurt the horse, an owner who feels the need to lease out their horse is so happy to find the right person, and it can be a real "symbiotic" relationship, since you bring good things to the equation and your riding the hrose can be a benefit, along with your $.
Thank you for the positive point of view tiny. :) I can't wait for sprign to come! I'm really excited, no matter what I end up deciding.
Keep the stories or feedback coming! It's nice to hear the positive experiences people have had, and even the not so happy ones are good to learn from.
A ride a day keeps the worries away!
