    Do you think it is possible to find someone to FREE lease my mare?

    I am wanting to find someone to "lease" my mare April. I want her to stay at my house and won't charge anything. I got my new gelding and won't have a whole lot of time to ride her. I also keep my friends tennesee walker here and when we ride and she is left here alone and I feel like she gets her feelings hurt when she is left out. My friend that rides with me works and only really gets to ride on the weekend. I am wanting to ride more often and would love someone to come and ride my mare. I wouldn't mind if they took her to shows or off the property to ride, I just want her to live here. I put an ad on horseclicks and am very suprised that no one has contacted me. Anyway, what do you think of the ad and do you think I will be able to find someone? Also if you know anyone that may be interested please pass the information along. My only requirement is that they have riding experience and know the basics of handling horses.

    Sounds like a fantastic opportunity for someone! The only thing I could see that might not grab someone's attention are the first two pictures. They're not the most flattering pictures for a very cute mare. Also, about half the add is talking about her being green broke. This type of ad may come across as an owner looking for someone to train her for free. A description that explains what she is used for (trails, etc) and what type of facilities are available at your property will go a lot further. A simple sentence requiring someone with experience, and your description of her as a 4 year old mare will be enough for people to get the picture that she's not a bombproof schoolmaster. Good luck!

    I really suck at taking pictures! She is really nosey and wants to see what I am doing with the camera instead of standing still. She is a good girl and safe to ride, maybe I don't really know what green broke is then. I will change that, thanks!

    I wouldn't doubt green broke is a good description for a four year old, but you could probably provide the additional details when someone emails or calls. Use the ad to describe her "glowing attributes" and provide her age, height, and experience. Are there any costs the leasee is responsible for? For many people, a free lease means there is no cost for the horse, but they still have to pay board, farrier, and vet bills.

    I'd also use Craiglist for a situation like this... Many people only look at the horse classified sites for purchases.

    I don't need them to pay a dime, just come ride with me and have use of a nice horse. I actually put it on craigslist and put a link to the horseclicks ad. Thanks for helping me! I moved here not too long ago and don't know many horse people besides my dressage trainer and a few neighbors.

    If I was going to free lease a horse, I would want to be able to take it to the facility that I took lessons/ride/board at.....

    If you had a ring to ride in at your house it would be slightly different, but without an area to ride in that has suitable ground, you might not get that many replies.

    That is true, I am looking for a riding buddy as well and am offering free use of my horse. I don't want her to go anywhere that is why I am offering for there to be no fees at all.
