Part - Board vs Lease ! What's the difference?
I've recently put my guy up for part board to help with expenses because I am currently unable to work (& ride for the moment), due to a foot injury for the next few months.
To me, this meant that the person would sign a contract stating how many rides per week they are allowed, the price, terms (showing, who pays for vet/feet, etc), and the horse stays where he is currently boarded -with monthly payments from them coming to me.
However, many people have approached me about leasing - and I'm just so confused as to whether or not the terms are interchangeable. I think many people DO use them interchangeably, but I would like to know the difference before venturing into a commitment with someone & having a short fall of expectations on either end of the deal.
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
