Leasing horses - please help!

Is anyone here familiar with leasing horses?

I've had an offer the other day to lease out one of my mares, and after a few weeks of deciding that should be able to part with her for a year as long as I get a million updates, I think I could do it.

But, I've never done it before. How exactly does a lease work?

The lady is breeding her, and will breed her back before she is returned.

I know there will clauses, such as the leaser pays all vet, worming, farrier, etc while the horse is in their care.

There will be a buy out, in case the horse gets permantely injured or dies, that they will pay the price of the mare to the owner.

That the mare will receive the best of care and should I find her in any state of distress, I have full permission to come down there and kick the living crap out of you. Kidding. Slightly.

But other than that... I'm a little lost with the process.
Could anyone help me out?

Thanks! :)

Recquire them to purchase insurance on the mare with you as beneficiary. Don't just put it in the contract that they have to pay you x amount if she dies.. because then they may not have the money.. and you have to go to court. I would personally, do an onsite lease where they pay a small monthly fee and she is retained on your property. Contracts are great, and make sure it's gone over by an attorney, but they can take time to hold up in court.

Well, it's a breeding lease to her own stallion so I can't have him here.
Unless she breeds her and brings her back? I wouldn't want to drive that far just for that though.

Thanks for your opinion! The attorney is an excellent point.

Is she an Arabian? If so, see if the lady is set up for A.I. Much safer, possibly cheaper considering the price of gas, and the mare doesn't leave your property. All she needs is a facility that will collect him (pretty inexpensive), the forms from AHA (can be expensive, but probably less than the shipping) and to ship the semen to you. Your vet can probably inseminate the mare (it's not difficult, and almost all vets can do it.. some of the older ones aren't as knowledgable as the younger vets that learned in school, if they didn't go take the classes, but most vets are pretty up to date on that. It's very similar to insemination in cattle, which has been used forever it seems).

Thanks again!

Does anyone have a copy of their lease agreements written up on the computer for an example?
