    Help With Leasing

    I have a 13 hand high POA gelding that I'm thinking about leasing out. HE is a black leapord appy colored pony. I am sending him to my instructors for training this month and will be getting lessons on him 3 times a week. We're going to start jumping him soon. I am getting to be too big for him so when we're done with the month at the trainers I wanna lease him out to a show home. What do you think of that. Would it be wise? If I don't he'll be wasting in the field and he has amazing eventing potential.
    What should I charge when leasing him? Should I make it a free lease and make them pay for boarding and everything?

    Here's some pictures.

    Aaaaaw...he's a cutie.

    I know that when I was thinking about leasing that it was about $25.00 a ride. So if I rode twice a week it would be 200 dollars a month. If I rode 3 times a week it would be 300 dollars a month. And so on... As you can tell it was only a partial lease. The owner was crazy. She wasn't riding him, but didn't really want anyone else to ride him either. Whatever...

    I had to go to the barn that he was at to ride him. I also was required to still take lessons with my instructor at the barn.

    What it all comes down to is how experienced he is, who you are leasing him to, and how much his board is at the barn.

    Make sure you have a solid contract. I suggest looking something up online or talking to your instructor about getting a good contract set up. I know that there are some pretty standard things in most contracts. An accident clause in case the horse or rider should get hurt. Liability waver. If anything life threatening happens to the horse that was my fault, I would have to pay for the estimated cost of the horse. In my case, $5000.00.

    Just make sure that you throughly interview this person and are completely comfortable with his/her riding ability. If you are at all unsure about someone, don't do it. You can always say no. Plenty of people would love to lease a horse, do what makes you happy and your horse.

    I hope I was helpful. Good luck!!!

    Me luffs him :)

    If I were to lease out one of my horses, it would HAVE to be boarded at the barn I board one of mine at, and it would just be the cost of board, but there are certainly many ways to do it! :) Your trainer might be able to suggest some people to lease him?

    Alright. Thanks for the help guys. We're not quite sure if that's what we want to do yet but its one of the options. That makes sense Chey, to just have them pay for board. And yes, I'd definitely want them at my barn. So I can keep an eye on my boy.
