question about leasing

I was just wondering, if you are leasing a horse and that horse becomes sick/injured through no fault of your own and you are unable to ride it for a certain length of time...should you expect to be reimbursed any of your lease payment or credited time? Or is it basically just that you are out of luck and have no horse to ride? Just curious

I would guess that most of the time you are just out of luck. That is probably something you should go over with the person you are leasing from. I know that my barn offers leases on the lesson horses, but the way they do it is, if the horse you are usually riding for the lease becomes lame or otherwise unridable, they let you ride another lesson horse for the remainder of your lease. Now obviously if you are leasing from someone with just the one horse, this isn't an option. So again, you would have to talk to the person you would be leasing from.

That's something that needs to be discussed before the lease is finalized. Sometimes you're just out of luck, sometimes the owner takes the horse back, sometimes you split layup/vet costs, etc. Leases can have any terms you want them to have but they need to be in writing and signed by both parties to be effective.
