Finding horses to lease

We all know websites like equinenow.com are good for browsing horses to buy, but does anyone know a website or a good place to start when looking for leasing options? Every once in awhile I will come across a for lease ad on Craigslist or by word of mouth but is there some place I can get a consolidated list of horses for lease in my area? This may just be a shot in the dark haha. I appreciate any information!
I'd like to buy, but I think leasing is a better option till I'm settled and done with college for obvious reasons!

My only suggestion would be to call the local barns in your area.

Most of the time, leases are made available to lesson students...

If you are looking for a private lease, then your best bet is probably watching Craigslist and your local papers. (Iwanta, for example.)

Good luck!

Leasing a spoiled rotten trail horse...pretty - but a brat!

The barn where I was taking lessons offered me the opporutnity to lease a horse with option to buy. My issue is that I can't afford the full board yet. For $200 a month I get unlimited use of a lovely little buckskin or an arab/appy cross. I coordinate with the barn manager when I am coming and we make sure the horse I want to ride is not overworked. It works out very well. I also pay $35 every other month for the farrier and up to $100 per YEAR in vet expenses. They cover all other costs and have the option to use him as needed for lessons or trail rides. It helps them during the winter months, they have fewer lessons, and my money essentially pays his hay/grain bills.

I can exercise my option to buy at any time with a contract for a year's board. This is useful to me because these horses are for sale, if they get a potential buyer, I have first refusal.

Try calling some barns in your local area and ask if they have any horses for lease. Most barns will have multiple horses for lease so you should have a good selection then ask if you can stop over and test a few of them out to pick the one you want to lease

some tack stores have a kind of listing. could ask there.
Word of mouth works surprisingly well, though.

Thanks guys for all the tips! I'm hoping I really can do this in the next 6 months or so, now that I have some good and steady income :)
