Post Half Lease, $700... 16.3h Irish Sport Horse Mare

I am a hunter/jumper trainer in the Sarasota, FL area (Clark rd).
I have a 20 year old, 16.3h Imported Irish Sport Horse coming out of retirement as a broodmare and I am looking for someone interested in half leasing her.

I am asking $700/month as that is exactly how much it costs me to board/feed/and care for her. I will include 1 lesson a week into the lease at no additional charge, if the rider is interested. If you choose to keep her at a different barn than the one I have chosen, then you will be paying for her board by yourself seperately, and the lease fee goes down to $300/month. SHE MUST STAY IN SARASOTA, FL!

This mare was once a top-of-the-line 4' equitation horse. Had training in the Grand Prix ring with Todd Minikus as a youngster. Knows up to 3rd level dressage. Once she gets back in shape (which admittedly may take a while), she will make an AWESOME 2'6" equitation horse or dressage horse for someone.

If you look at my picture albums you can see her showing in the past as well as a few recent pictures of her while she was passing inspection as a broodmare.

I'm happy to answer any questions!

$700 a month is an insane price for a half lease, or even a full lease. If you expect someone else to pay the entire cost of her board/feed/care, that person needs to be the owner. Not to mention that she is 20 years old has been retired!

But it includes a lesson.

Why should anyone pay you for the "privilege" of tuning up your retired horse for you? If anything, it sounds to me like YOU should be the one paying for this mare to get some work... or at least offering a free deal to a talented rider who wants to spend the time with her.

Also, a "half lease" generally implies that the lessee pays HALF of the cost of keeping the horse so that they can ride the horse HALF of the time. Why on earth would they be expected pay the full cost of keeping the horse?

I apologize, but this is just one of my pet peeves that I hate to see.

Well I was going to go buy my own horse, but I changed my mind. I would rather pay for you to keep your horse at an overly priced boarding barn. I will get a free lesson! Or weight I can give you $300 on top of paying for your horse if I move it to another barn. WOW what a bargain. Where do I sign?

As others have stated it is a half lease- meaning you pay half and they pay half. I live in Ny and $700 is undoubtedly an insane amount of money to ask for someone to half lease your 20 year old horse. Especially being she needs to be tuned up. I'd try lowering the price because you aren't going to find many willing average-joes wanting to pay you $700 a month. It doesn't even cost me that a month for my horse and I'm in NY. Just my $0.02

Good thing this horse doesn't belong to any of you so it really doesn't matter what you think of the cost ;D

Okay. I guess for those of you who do not understand how a nationally competing level A Circuit barns work, I will explain the typical boarding/leasing process.

Boarding is around $1,000 per month MINIMUM.
A regular lease fee for a made equitation horse, that can pack a child around the 2'9" with patience and also look good doing it, is around $50,000 per year.
Which comes out to slightly over $4,100 per month.
You would also normally be completely responsible for any vet care or maintenance done on the horse.

This horse has won at nationals on the A circuit. Has trained in the grand prix. Is currently (as in I can go saddle her right now and she will do this) in 3rd level dressage. Several vets have lameness tested her and all said give her a month and she will be awesome again.

So yes. $700 for this horse is a steal. Especially when including boarding, care, maintenance, and lessons.
