On top of that they they offered for me to lease one of the trainers horses who is, according to them, "much better quality" than the mare. The price would be the same. He is nice, but for some reason I like the drafty mare better. So, if she is such a poor "quality" (meaning that she can't jump as high), she lives outside, and her saddle is ripped, why are they still trying to charge me over $550 a month for her? Is this normal? Are leases negotiable?
I have other gripes about this barn, but right now I just want to know if they are trying to hose me with this lease?
