Should I lease my mini pony? What is your addvise?

Hi there everybody,
You see, I got a miniature gelding and I was looking into leasing him to reliable families. He is broke to ride and is trained to pull cart. I was just wondering what everyones addvice was to either lease him or not lease him. I have never leased out before, so I dont know much. Also, I dont know how much a month I would charge the families(I was hoping you could help me out with that too:)
Please dont be afraid to give me ANY addvise! If you have any questions for me just let me know!
Thanks everyone:)!

I would be careful when leasing, make sure you check out the potential leasee's (sp?). About charging i don't know anyone who does that. I think a majority of people fre lease a horse as in you as the owner do not pay for feed, farrier, dentist etc. and neither do you charge them for use of the horse. If leasing it is a good idea to insure your horse or get the leasee's to do so.

Thankyou for your reply, I realy dont want to sell him, and that is why I was looking into leasing. I found someone who would like to lease him and she has 2 kids. My pony would stay at their stables..... is their website address and all of their horses look in excelent shape. So your saying if I make a full inspection, and EVERYTHING looks good, than it would be an aprooved home? I plan on seeing him regularly so I can assure that he is doing well, so I will make sure that he is treated well. Thanks again! I am open to all other suggestions!

I think that if you are happy with the family and the place and the fact you are going to be seeing him regularly it sounds like a good match, good luck with everything :)
