    Thinking about leasing/selling my arab..

    Since I am moving out of state next spring, and have a project horse moving in, I am considering leasing my horse out, probably with option to own.

    I have a few questions, as I've never been in a lease situation.

    -Should I start putting him out there as winter starts, or when spring begins? I haven't decided if I'm moving in May/June or more like July/August.

    -How much do you think I could charge? If I had to, I would gladly free lease to the right person, but I'd love to get at least a little bit of money out of it of course He is a 10 y/o reg. Straight egyptian arabian. He is started in training level dressage, but hasn't competed yet. Before I got him he went to breed shows in WP. He could also make a nice trail horse if someone just wanted that. Very versitile and easy to work with. No quirks (besides being an arab, lol). He is pretty easy-going, not hot, just sensitive as arabs are.

    -Do I pay vet bills, boarding, vaccinations, coggins, farrier, worming, all that? Or does it depend on the lease?

    -Is it fair of me to have certain requirements? For example, at least have a trainer and take at least 2 lessons/month, agree on boarding facility, etc.?

    Thanks guys!

    If you are offering a full lease, which it sounds like you are, the leasee pays for everything. Its just like owning, except not lol. I think it is perfectly reasonable to require a boarding facility that you deem acceptable, and if you are marketing him as a show mount I would want to approve the trainer as well. I would have him appraised, and then take a fraction of that (300-400 dollars is good IMO) and have that be the price per month.

    Thanks for the information, Tblvr. I doubt in my area that I could get $300-$400, but I'd love the shoot for that ;)

    And thanks for the love, mysticalhorse
