Should I lease him out? What should I do??

I've owned my AQHA horse for almost 4 years. For the first few years, he was everything I was looking for. He had the trot of a good english horse, he was pretty laid back, and he had the potential to jump.

Now I'm excelling in jumping, but not on him. I've been taking lessons at another barn, and they want me to ride there. The problem is, they are about an hour away and they are EXPENSIVE. I've been seeking out sponsorship with very little luck, and I don't have a job to support it (I'm 15, living with my mom who works 2 jobs). My mom can rarely drive me out there, and we don't have the money. I'm trying everything I can to help, but I don't know how to get the money to support it.

I've been thinking about it for a few months now. My current horse just isn't the horse that is going to get me where I want to go, and while he is very talented and I love him to pieces, it isn't fair for me to expect what I'm expecting out of him. I don't want to push him over the edge. I want to see him loved for what he can already do, rather than go through the constant frustration of trying to get him to the level I want him at.

I want to put him up for lease. I'm sure I can get a fairly good price to lease him out, and that may be enough to be able to support what I want. (although, it doesn't solve the transportation problem.)

Is it a good idea to lease him out? What would you do in this situation??

I have no idea on what you should do, but I did want to commend you for accepting your horse's limitation and not pushing him into something that he isn't great at/doesn't enjoy just for your own gain.

It would be good to lease him out so he can get the exercise he needs while you focus on doing the jumping he's unable to do.

Just gotta find the right person for him!
