possible new lease

So I've been searching around and wasnt really looking to lease however this opportunity came up. My trainer knows a lady who owns a buckskin mare reg name I believe is bad boys little hickory she's just turned 6 and is supposed to havr awesome lines. Anyway my friend brought her to the rnch to try her amd while she looks fairly rusty and greenish she catches on very quick. Well my friend changed her mind on her so I've been offered to lease her. Now my thing is Im nervous to start leasing this horse and havr her sold out from under me and I technically "own" outlaw however that's a whole nother situation.

Well you'd be paying to ride not paying to own (unless you put that in the contract)

Why would you hate to have the horse sold from underneath you?

Take it as a learning experience :P

I would love to have the experience of course! Haha its just that I have a horse to ride now and I don't want to give hom up ( even if itd be better for my back ) just to lease a horse for a couple weeks or month and be set on my butt horseless. She'd be a great experience but im just hesitant as id basically be giving her a refresher and even teaching her more than she knows now but for an unset time as she is infact for sale and my mom isn't open to her 1500dollar price tag, which for this mare is a touch high training wise but I suppose breeding wise she's set about fine. If I had a job id of snatched her up though haha.

You don't have time to ride both horses?

I would personally, if I had time, ride both for as long as the horse is around. Maybe in the future you'll have enough to buy this horse if you're set.

But you'll be paying to ride.. which is strange/ Why is she for lease (money) when she's going up for sale? Wouldn't it make more sense if they let you ride no charge as you're giving her miles or they pay you? Idk.

Just my thoughts

Well I have the time I don't have the money outlaws board is 165 and im not positive what this horses would be also the lady wants to keep her at home so gas wise its a lottle difficult as im using my moms v8.
I would jump at the opportunity to work her without paying but im really not clear on the entire situation but im 80% positive she would still be up for sale if I lease her. I do see what you are saying though.

I, personally, know the woes of a horse you're leasing being for sale as well..Especially when you go to one of your first shows on the horse and the owner tells you that there's a few potential buyers wanting to look at her and watch how she runs, and you don't find this out until you're going into your pole class. -.-
If I were paying to lease a horse, I expect to have that horse available for me to lease (from the SAME OWNER) for as long as we agreed I'd be leasing. ST's currently for sale, but it's not advertised anywhere and I'm only leasing her until fair when I leave for college..so I'm not too worried about it.
Previous BO that I was leasing Lucky from put a for sale ad up on her without even telling me, my friend that wrote the ad and another friend that just so happened to come across the ad told me, and then BO told me almost 2 weeks later and that someone was coming out the week after to look at her.
I know how you feel when you think the horse is going to be sold right out from under you, and I'm going to have to say to just go with your gut feeling about the owner. If the owner seems like she -needs- to sell the mare, I wouldn't do it unless she just wanted a few more miles so she stayed in shape throughout her sale, but I would not pay for that. If she doesn't look like she -needs- to sell the mare, I would try talking to her about how you're worried about her selling the horse while you're leasing and you ending up horse-less. I'm sure anyone that's leased before would understand where you're coming from, because it is a worry.

Shes for sale because the owner had surgery and doesnt think she will be up to giving her the tome she needs being a young horse. She's well taken care of though so I don't believe its so much a hardship but I haven't really met the owner I've talked to her a few times but just like a quick hi and a few texts when I first asked about her but im hopefully meeting her today and tryong the mare out so holding high standards and not getting my hopes up. Thank you guys :)

Well Im going tomorrow to see her and the owner basically said I could ride her whenever I wanted she needs the miles and touch up training and she can't do it so anyway this is the lovelly girl I am going to possibly start riding for awhile, Hickory.

First ride and she is still definitely very green but caught on pretty quickly. Definitely has mare-itude when she thinks she's done she throws a little hissy fit of going backwards and not wanting to go forward. No crit on the riding pictures it was my first time on her and she was fighting me a lot and it was far too hot for pants so shorts it was...
