if you are this unhappy this early in the lease then IMO this is not going to work out long term at all...regardless of whose "fault" it is it is just not a compatible situation...obviously both of you went into this with two very different ideas of how it was going to work... if the mare really is that perfect a horse for you i would offer to buy her outright tho before you walk away...a horse that's that good a match for you can be really, really hard to find...

Why are you picking on me? I have no clue if the owner is maxed out. It's just that I wouldn't be leasing ANY of my horses, unless:
1) KNEW and totally trusted a VERY GOOD FRIEND, who wanted to ride/show and didn't have a finished horse
2) I REALLY needed the money
This falls into the "common sense" category.
If you all are in the same lease as the OP, and you like it, who am I to interfere.

I don't see anything "common sense" about it....

MANY people lease their horses for MANY reasons.

Now those may be your *preferences*, but I don't know why that makes it "common sense" for others...

Personally I wouldn't be leasing without specifics either, but I don't make my preferences other peoples rules.

The horse is kept at the leasors barn, same trainer. Did the the leasor watch the leasee ride prior to signing the lease ? IMO you lease a horse, it is kept at the same barn, use the same trainer , watched the leasee ride and interact with the horse prior to the lease, then demand to be there every time the leasee rides is a tad bit of being a control freak, and she should not be leasing the horse.

You know it's entirely possible the owner wants to be around to help the OP. She isn't demanding she be there every time OP rides, she changed her own schedule so she's there during OP's lesson times... I'm going to assume the owner knows the horse better than the OP, and probably has quite a few tips for the OP about her horse. This was, after all, a problem that occurred during the first WEEK not several weeks / months into the lease...

Exactly. The owner may be a little overbearing but she doesn't sound like a control freak, just a concerned caring owner. She never demanded to be there when the OP rode and I don't know why people keep on saying that.

The owner has gone out of her way to be around, yes but has not demanded nor requested anything unusual from the OP not expected the OP to do anything to suit her. The owner has made some offers, nothing more.

Now maybe she is overbearing and I understand where the OP is coming from but I also understand where the owner is coming from. It's on the first few weeks.. If it doesn't work for someone that's fine it may work for someone else but I don't feel for one second that the owner is being a control freak or has anything but the best intentions for the OP or the horse. If you don't LIKE it fine but do understand it... People are saying all these things that the OP NEVER said.

I am also interested in an update.
