You don't want to lease - you want the $ and still have complete control of the horse and situation. Look at the restrictions you want in place. Could you honestly accept those terms from someone else if the position were reversed?
If your checkbook can't handle the horse right now, perhaps it would be best to sell or give her to someone who is in a position to do right by her.
The lease is free providing they provide her care and vet bills. Shots I will do I don't expect someone else to cover that its my horse. But if the horse is injured in thier care they pay for it. I can handle her board but I feel terrible she is sitting there and not being rode because I can no longer ride. I wont collect any money what so ever on her lease. I wouldnt expect anyone to pay me for a lease that's unreal.
And yes if it was reversed I would do it. I would allow anyone to come anytime and watch me work thier horse.
She has so much potential but came from an abusive past and her and I have a tight bond. But if I can ride lets say in a few years and my health is better I will have this older horse that was never finished and have to start all over again.
I do understand that some are trying to help but it should be worded differently to the point that your not cutting the other person down.
Help me fix my lease so I can get her leased out. But I do want full access to my horse and it will be in the contract that I can terminate the lease as I feel needed. I sent her to a trainer once and she came back to me not knowing how to lead. She would stop and start shaking. I don't know what the trainer did but it took me 3 months to get her to lead next to me again.
I don't want her hurt. She came to me with whip markings all over her face and body and that was when she was 6months old. She is now 5yrs old and finally trusts other people and will let anyone catch and lead her.
