Whats the Difference?

Okay Whats the Difference between full and half lease? I'm getting a new horse most likely and I'm going to lease her out so I don't have to pay her board so would the be a half lease because I'll still be feeding her and buying her food and letting her in and out? They will just get to show her and play with her?

Usually on a half lease, the owner and lessee split the routine vet bills and shoeing, along with board and feed costs. They also share the horse with specific days being set for each party to ride, feed, and care for the animal.

One way to deal with major vet bills is to carry mortality and major medical insurance on the horse. You can also ask that the lessee pay half the premium. This way, if something happens the horse will get the care he requires, and out of pocket expenses will be minimized for both parties.

On a full lease the lessee usually takes care of everything financially, unless it requires major medical expenses and/or euthanasia. Those options are generally left up to the owner. On a full lease the owner does not interact with the horse at all unless it's necessary.

IF you decide to half or even full lease your horse, make sure you have a contract that spells out everything in minute detail. Handshakes or thinking everything will be peachy with just a verbal agreement usually turn out badly for everyone concerned.
