Hi everyone, I am not sure if you remember me, I posted about a mare for sale at our barn called Annie. She had some issues, and you all correctly helped me realize she is probably not the best horse for us to buy.
We have been offered a free lease on Annie, and the contract is being negotiated....We are seriously considering this. Caroline rode Annie in a show today (NEHC rated) and won 4 blue ribbons in her walk/trot classes.
We are not naive to Annies issues/concerns and felt she was overpriced.
What terms should I expect on the lease? I have been told that it will include a stipulation either party can opt out with written notice, but what else should I be thinking of? As a lesee do I pay all vet bills? Do I need insurance? Am I crazy? (the last is a joke...kinda?)
Appreciate any further guidance you can give me.
