experience with free lease situations?
I was wondering if any of you had experience with a free lease. That is, having your horse sent out on free lease. I am thinking about leasing out my two girls Uma and Demi for six months or so. I am at a time in my life where I really don't have a passion for riding. I feel like it's my job and I am not enjoying it at all. I have been competing since I was six and have never had a real break and my frustration has finally taken it's toll. It's not fair for my beautiful horses to sit and do nothing when someone else could use them.
So my questions are...
Did you recieve or give the free lease?
What were you required to pay (vet, farrier, nothing?)?
Was the horse kept at the facility it was at before or sent somewhere?
Was it overall a good experience for the horse and you?
Would you do it again, if not, why?
Any other info pertaining to this subject would be helpful as I have never leased out a horse before. Of course I would do the contract, liability, etc. But I need to know some of the basic things before I really give thought to it.
