Leasing my mare out

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!

That sounds like a great deal to me, wish I lived closer... I've never leased out one of my horses, so I'm not entirely sure what the protocols are... I'd just make sure that whoever you get is someone with the experience she needs. You don't want someone who swears they can handle a more green horse and have them end up ruining her. Is she english or western? How experienced is she?

She's english and western, she hasn't been trained in a specific sport to be honest, she knows a little of everything. She could easily be turned into a show jumping, dressage horse, barrel racer, english/western pleasure, halter horse, etc. She was a rescue, so I don't know how much experience she has in the show or professional training ring, if any. But she's good and solid and can handle anybody :)

Sounds like a good idea to me; i've loaned three or four ponies in the past and am still loaning one now, and it really helps the owners out for a start haha!
First thing i'd say though, is that even though you've got some good ideas going, MAKE THEM SIGN A CONTRACT! Stick to your end, and if they don't stick to theirs, then you can deal with it then. Also, are you planning on just letting them ride or do you want them to yard work too? If you want them to do some yard work, i'd maybe reduce the cost a bit, as me and my sister do the yard work and ride Hippy etc., and his lovely owner doesn't charge us at all!
And the best of luck... it'll be great having someone there to help you out!

Naah, I still want the responsibilities of cleaning up after her and stuff. I still love her and wanna care for her. If they want to clean her stall, they are welcome to, but if they don't it's no big deal. And YES contract is a MUST! Big time!
Thank you! I hope someone wants to lease her :)

Personally I would not allow trailering off the property until you are quite comfortable with the leaser...after you have a positive relationship np. But that's just me. Free access anytime riding for only$125 is really generous...I would recommend a stipulation that the horse get some time off a minimum of 1 day/week...but that's just my opinion
