Smile Leasing Questions??

Just wondering about some things:
1) How much does it cost to lease where you live? (Where I am, it's almost 500 dollars per month just for partial leas, is that reasonable?)
2) What should you know about horses before leasing?
3) For anyone who has had this happen: Does it suck knowing that the horse technically isn't yours, &that you'll have to give him back eventually??

Price varys depending on the horse, location, etc But $500 sounds ridic to me.
At a farm here they charge $300 flat for a half and $150 flat for a quarter. I've seen cheaper and more exspensive around though, [but not $500 for just a partial]
I'm thinking about free leasing a horse this year. I haven't before so I don't know if it rots to return them!

Some barns pay a premium in taxes if land is tight. Also if use of an indoor arena is included, someone has to help pay the mortgage on that. The great thing about leasing is you move up to a better horse as your skills develop without having the aggravation of trying to find a buyer. And the horse you've bonded with is still there safe and sound.

Depends on the lease. Most of our full leases cover board. Horse owners still pay vet and farrier.

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!
