Unfortunately, the biggest turn off for me would be the whole 24/7 visitation thing. If I was leasing a horse I would have absolutely no problem with the owner calling me sometimes and saying "hey do you mind if I pop in?" but any lease that states the owner has the right to walk on to my property at any time? I don't think so.
The way I see it if you know and love this horse as much as you do even a visit once every couple of weeks would be enough to tip you off as soon as something was different about your horse. I assume you know the ins and outs of her and therefore it wouldn't be hard to spot when something was wrong.
As far as terminating the lease, I think that is a pretty standard clause in most agreements, but only if the conditions of the lease aren't met. And seeings as your conditions are pretty far up there, I think you'd be terminating the lease rather quickly.
I can understand you're concern for jumping if she has a previous hip injury. HOWEVER, cantering a 5 year old shouldn't be an issue at all. And if I were you I would do yourself a favour and have her vetted for soundness before you went any further. I'm thinking she would at least be cleared for light jumping.
I don't mean to come off harsh, I am merely doing as you asked and trying to help you tweak your lease.
I didnt even think of it being a problem as to coming on someones property. I was thinking of boarding as i am. I do see that as a problem if they are on thier own property or even boarding and someone not being there and i just show up.
She is deemed sound but i am over worried about the hip. I even do stretches with her before she does any kind of work. I dont even walk her without stretching. And as for showing up every once in a while and knowing something is off your right. I am just so paranoid about leasing her out i am over thinking. I can tell how the horse hurts and she tells me where if i simply ask.
It will however be off property lease as i board and having someone come ride her where i board wouldnt work as the boarders are strict and dont even want visitors unless they sign a waiver. I am in the process of moving her in the next couple of weeks.
MuleWrangler that is an awesome idea but i live in a big college town. So all those deals are gone. I have talked to 3 stables about that.
I do however have a lady interested. Her daughter shows and is getting bored with her blue ribbon push button horses and her daughter trains as well. She was just talking to her mom about buying another horse for project. So they are looking at my mare. I dont have a problem with my mare cantering providing the person riding knows how to ride and can help her.
I had a person email me wanting to put a 6yr old child on. I cant even believe people would want to do that on a green broke horse.
I dont mind how she is rode i dont want her ground work to go backwards.
Thank you guys i hadnt realized i had made it that bad.
