Oh and you can google lease contracts online, they will lay out everything that you and your leasee are responsible for so there no problems legally.

I used to half lease one of my trainer's horses, and it was $250/month (board is $325/month where we board)...I got 3-4 riding days a week and I paid for weekly lessons with him on top of it. But he provided his own tack and paid for anything that may come in health-wise with the horse, I just paid that flat fee per month to half lease with 1 other person.

I've never done a full lease and most people at my barn do half leases, so I'm not really sure what a fair price would be. But I would think that it would be 100% of the board and at LEAST shared health costs (routine stuff like shots, wormers, shoe/trim costs, etc.) if not all of them since a full lease is almost like owning the horse at that point.

But I think I'm with others on here when I say I would not be okay with them leaving the property with my horse - unless perhaps I went with them to a show or something.

I wouldn't really have a problem going half on worming, trimming, shots, etc. I just want her to be in good hands. I worm her myself, she gets trimmed about every 10 weeks or so (Her feet don't grow that much, and when she was in constant work, all my farrier had to do was just reshape because she naturally wore it away.

I'll look around today to see what's out there.

Sounds like you had a really good deal. I really like that kind of set up actually because the owner knows exactly what's going on with their horse and are in charge of all the fine details. Really smart.

I can't answer many of these questions-i haven't leased any horses. But, I think I can answer one. Normally, people who own the horse do supply all the tack. It's up to you though, it's your horse.

If I sell my saddle, I'll buy another used one and use that one for Vega, and I have another headstall (its western though).

I'll see how it all goes though.
