I just posted and ad for half-leasing my mare out. The person would be allowed to come out and ride her as frequently as they want, but I would also be allowed to continue groundwork training on her on a daily basis to keep her going. She just needs a tune up and a few good rides on her and what better way than to lease her to the right person (I've been burnt out on riding lately and am taking a break). The lease would be month-to-month and $125/mo which covers feed, supplements, farrier and wormer. Of course I would board her and take care of everything else. They are allowed to trailer her off the property for trail rides, local shows and events with my permission and 48 hours notice.
I'm looking for some advice and suggestions in what to look for and what to watch-out for when leasing my mare. I'm a bit scared because I do not want her to end up in the wrong hands or stolen, but I believe that it's something I have to do for her right now. What are some safety precautions I can take and follow? Do you do background checks on potential leasers?
Any advice would be great, THANK YOU!
