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.?
