I recently leased out my mare. Spring of 2014 I will be starting nursing school and was concerned about being able to work enough hours to be able to keep her. I knew I didn't want to sell her, but I didn't expect her to have an interested party so soon. She is leased out at a place 4 hours away from me and I am 100% miserable. I will admit that I have been spirally down into a depression. I was riding a friends horse, but it's just not the same. I have also talked to my trainer about doing a half lease on one of her lesson horses. I leased from her before but got frustrated because there were a lot of people using the same horse.
I want her closer, and I wish I had looked more into a half lease or cheaper board. I have found a place literally next door where I could keep her for just the cost of hay (I would provide grain and do self care). However, her leasor adores her. She has only been leased out for a month. I want so badly to go get her. What would others do on this situation? Hurt somebody to be happy again, or just suck it up and try to "get over this hump."
