For my old jumper I charged $250 which included 2 rides a week and one weekend day every other week, no other bills and I would give them help. He was a bombproof jumper trail horse though... Posted via Mobile Device
It depends on the facilities, the horse, and how many rides.
-My first horse was at an amazing barn, 1 lesson a week with on site instructor, and 4 solo rides a week. She was $550 every month.
-The horse I am currently leasing is at a crappy barn, no instructor, but unlimited rides. He is $185 every month.
-My friend is leasing right now, at a decent barn, two-three rides a week, no instructor. She pays $350 a month, plus she pays for the shoeing.
To be honest, I have only really seen/heard of free leases here. Where they tale the horse and pay for it's upkeep, any vet bills - Basically as if they own the horse, but they don't. I have free leased horses out and taken horses on free lease.
At the moment id only free lease as its easy to pick up a horse if they want for the lease price.
3 of mine are out on free lease and everyrhing is perfect I still get to see, ride and compete them every now and again
Over my way it depends on the horse. If he's a seasoned show horse or good solid kids pony club horse you might be able to charge 50 to 60 a week. Other wise I would say free lease, with the lessee paying all the horse's bills.
