Question off farm lease questions!

Hey everybody! I am looking to lease a horse (off farm) and I am wondering if you have to pay for board, vet, farrier or anything like that or if the person who owns the horse does?

I think it usually depends on the person you are in contract with. I've never leased before, and I know there are different types of leases. By off farm lease do you mean you will be leasing the horse at the barn of your choice?

Yes at my own barn. But I am wondering in genral because board is quite expensive and even if you jhave a free lease its would just be like owning a horse so im wondering if it is a good option

I'm not totally sure, like I said I've never leased. The only leases I have seen have been on-site and they leaser pays for either a full or partial lease while the owner covers the vet bills and farrier. It's definitely something to look into, but as for specifics, it would be up to the owner of the horse as to what is being covered by whom.

If it's like a feed lease and you keep the horse at your place you are responsible for the horse and all the upkeep including vet care, farrier care, feeding, training, and all the other stuff that goes with owning a horse. If the horse causes damage you have to pay for it because the horse is in your care. And if the horse comes up lame or dies while in your care you will have to pay for the horse, at least that's the way it is in most leases.
