kait, no personal experience, but if you decide to lease off-site make sure to check the horse frequently (just to be on safe side) and something to disclose in contract.
I've seen some ads for off-site lease in my area, and basically the person takes the horse and pays for everything (boarding/trim/dewormer/lessons (if any)). I'm not so sure about medical emergencies though.
