I am in the midwest and I pay $150 for a partial but I think $200 is more common around here. My boy lives on a grass pasture that costs his owner $425 a month to keep him there. There are both indoor and outdoor arenas, it has direct access to a state park with lot of trails, and there is a track running around the entire property. Its a really fancy place but I am getting a steal on my lease.
I say taking lessons for at least a year should be a requirement for leasing a horse. There is a big step going from taking lessons (supervised) and being unsupervised with someone else's animal.
It is hard knowing that he is not "mine", but when I think about it, I am getting a really good deal on a great horse. His owner hardly ever rides and pays a lot to own him/ maintain him, so I am getting the better end of the deal!
