If you free lease him out, you still own him and the leaser only takes care of him and rides him. They cannot sell your horse as you own him and they only 'borrow' him until the lease contract expires.
I think it would be a great idea to lease him out to someone who knows what they are doing and has an experienced trainer. Many riders (especially parents!) would jump at the chance to free lease a horse! Parents(and riders) fancy the idea of having a specific horse instead lesson horse for their child to ride, but usually can't commit to buying a horse when the rider will eventually go off to college.
Personally if he was in Northwest Florida I would love to take a look at him if he was offered for free lease! He is a lovely horse.

Thank u so much!!

Thanks that is super encouraging. Yeah, I'm open for a free lease as long as a contract is made up for it. I have one person who's going to vet him out this weekend so I really hope that works out! Thank you so much everyone for your support! I jumped Westin over a crossrail today and he loved it - first time I've tried jumping him in 2 years and he was completely sound. He's such a beautiful, quiet, amazing horse and I love him to death.

And please don't forget to take the time to check on him if you do a free lease. I have seen too many of them go bad when the owner doesn't check on the animal for say 6 months. You can write everything into a contract, but a contract is only as good as the paper its written on if the lessee turns into a bum. I have seen too many horror stories on here of people who check on their horse too late or get a starved skinny animal back.

I don't really feel the colleges are necessarily an option either. There was just a story on the news in Oregon about how Oregon State University took a bunch of donated horses after they were done with their studies and dumped them into a kill pen.

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say that I finally sold Westin 2 days ago!!! His new owner is a wonderful local woman who is getting back into riding. Westin will also be used in an equine program for autistic children. I can't think of a better life for him. Thank you to everyone to supported me and gave me advice - it has resulted in a very happy ending for everyone :)

May I ask what you did end up selling him for? I am curious because I am along the lines of everyone else that is alot of money for a horse that may or may not be sound. There was a percheron/tb horse at the barn I use to work at he moved very nicely and she sold him for $25,000 and I doubt she bought him for that much. If you bought a horse for $20,000 6 years ago I wouldn't think you could sell them for the same amount. The horse is older etc....

Ohhhh k

"I'm not listing Westin for 2k or 3k because if someone can afford to consider paying a price like 15k or 20k, they are serious about wanting him and realize his potential/value. "

I really didn't like this because to me you do just want and care all about money. My horse is'nt worth $25,000 but I could try to sell him for that just because people have the money." or that is what I got from the post.
