Leasing Question?

So I'm sure most of you have leased/are leasing a horse,and I was just wondering how much it cost all of you to do so.

I finally got to ride for the first time today since May, I haven't been able to go because of my high school's prom then graduation and poor weather,so I was forced to cancel and not ride these past few weeks.So I get to the barn and I go to get my handsome boy from his stall with my trainer,so we go to the tack room to get his stuff.And hanging from his bridle is a long piece of orange twine.We just kinda stared at it for a second,and then my trainer said "Oh,I bet this is from camp." Every summer at my barn for a few weeks there's a summer camp 5 days a week that uses all of the school horses.Snickers is one of the horses used for the little kids because he's so quiet,but he gets the munchies and likes to dive for grass.This is where the twine comes in.They used a piece of twine attached to the brow band,running down to his bit,and then tied to the front of the saddle so he can't reach any grass and give the little kids a hard time.His neck is probably getting all cramped up,and he's used every day of the camp so by the time my lesson rolls around on Sunday the poor thing's exhausted.I don't want him to go through that,so I got the perfect idea:lease him next summer!

I'm hoping to get a part time job in the fall after my college classes,and yes I will have a car so I can go see him whenever I want.I'll save money from my future job up until next summer so I can afford to lease him during the camp weeks so he doesn't have to go through that.So here are my questions:

- If you leased a school horse,did you have to provide your own tack or use the barns?
- How much did it cost you for the lease in total/per week?
- What were some of the factors of your lease? For example: Did you have to feed the horse you leased or did the barn's employees feed them for you? Were there certain times you could and couldn't ride your horse?

I can't think of any more questions right now (I'm kinda sleepy), so any personal experiences you can all tell me about will be much appreciated! =]

If you were just leasing a school horse from a school for the summer I think it would be a different sort of lease. You probably would be required to keep the horse boarded there and the board will probably include food.

As you are leasing from a business you may have to pay for the horse as well. Remember, they will not want to run at a loss, so they will probably aim to make the same or more money from the lease as they would from the summer school. The riding school that I went to growing up did not lease horses - the best thing would be to talk to your instructor at the school about it and see what their policies are.
