Need some contract advice

I have found a show home to lease my Arab gelding to. The lady who owns the barn and her client are coming to see him on Wednesday. She assures me that the lady who wants to lease her is a capable rider with more than 5 years experience and that she wants to show dressage. She takes 3 lessons a week and will be keeping my horse in the barn with daily pasture turnout. She wants to see him on Wednesday and take him if he works out for a 2 week trial. Then after that if the horse works out she wants to sign a regular free lease on him with them agreeing to pay for everything, including his teeth float in January all his shots and vet checks. How and where do I find the contract information for this? What kind of contract should I write up for the 2 week trial and how do I make sure all responsibility lies on them and not on me? Also where is the best place to get a lease contract from?

although you could probably do up something yourself, this is something that would probably be best to talk to a solicitor about. they will make sure there is nothing missed and that everything you want is laid out legally.

if you do do something up yourself, make sure you have witnesses sign the contract as well so if anything happens, there is back up from other people as well :)

good luck, sorry i couldnt be more help to ya :)

i agree with jazzyrider, also is your gelding reg or micro chiped?, i have seen so many deal go sour because the owners didn't not have the propper pappers, just make sure that you are very well cover, you also might want cover the fact that if the horse is injured in her care or in case of the horses death that she has full responsablitlies over that fact too.
