    Thinking about offering my horse for lease

    I've been thinking about putting some feelers out about offering one of my horses for lease. He's not getting worked, and it's going to be awhile before I'm going to really spend the time with him that he needs. It would be an off site lease, and I want to be very picky about who he might go to. I do NOT want to sell him, and I would want him back eventually.
    What should I watch out for?
    What are some important things to put in the contract?
    Any and all input welcomed as formal leasing is totally new to me. We do have a pony who is "leased" to us right now, but the owner is a good friend, who lives across the street, so it's not exactly the same as dealing with a stranger.

    The things that I put in a lease when I leased my mare were as follows :

    - Anything that happens to the horse while on their lease days , while they are there they are responsible for the vet bill.

    -If they are trail riding they call you first to let you know the horse will be off property incase anything happens . It would be easy for a person to lie and say the horse just did something in the feild.

    -The leaser if half lease is responsible for half the farrier or full lease they are incharge of the full farrier and vet bill . I even put in my contract that my half leaser was responsible for half the vet bill, considering they are riding the horse half the time .

    - The horse is not to be jumped ( if they do ) without permission first

    - NO tack that is not assigned to the horse is to be put on the horse . ABSOLUTELY no bit changes without your permisson

    - If the person wishes to get out of the lease they must give you 1 months notice so you have time to make other arrangments.

    - If you are allowing the person to use your tack the tack must be kept in the same condition it is first given to them in . If it is not the person will be responsible for giving the the money to replace it or they will replace it themselves.

    -Leaser must always pay their board on time

    -If for some reason you feel the leaser if unfit for the horse you are able to pull them out of the lease immediately.

    -leaser must have insurance ( depending where you are located this is a great idea ! )

    Those are some of them but they are important
