To help pay the bills I'm considering half leasing my horse out to a little girl. I was hoping you guys could tell me what all is entitled in a half lease?
Also, I am so nervous about this! I've had my horse for around six years now and love him to death. He is my baby. The thought of having to share him brings me to tears. But, my family could use the extra money. It would be a little girl leasing him, basically walk/trot I think. Do you think a half lease would be a good idea? Does the owner still have full control? And is a half lease more of the little girl half owns him or half uses him? I feel pretty silly typing this next part out, but I'm worried my boy would love this little girl more than me or enjoy being worked by her more than me. I know I know, silly, but still, I love him to pieces!
So if you guys could fill me in on anything and everything about a half lease, share personal experiences, and tell me if you think it would be a good idea that would be great! I also plan on talking to my trainer for further details if and when we become more serious about it!
Thanks so much!
