    I was thinking of half-lease my horse on-farm only. It is my first time doing this, what should I put in my contract? What is different between a half and full lease tho? I have seen someone pay full boarding with a limited time of ride per week while an owner will take care of the...
  2. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hi everyone, I am asking for advice. I started working with a trainer in April of 2021. I initially started going to this trainer to train my 5 year old for NRCHA. I was then convinced that I needed to sell my own horse, and they offered for me to lease a mare through the trainer's fiance that...
  3. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    I’ve always had my horse leased out at least a couple days at the bigger barns we have been at. Recently I moved her to a backyard type barn for the warmer months to save on costs. I want to lease her out a day, up to three a week, but have no clue what to charge given the change in the...

  7. Horse Law
    Hi, I'm going to try to best explain my situation without it being too lengthy. I recently (beginning of June) signed a full-lease contract until the end of August. It was agreed upon by me, the barn owner, the horse owner, and the horse owner's father that this would be a great situation for...
  8. Horse Talk
    I’ve tried out a couple potential lease horses at two different barns and I can’t decide which to go with. For context, I’m an adult re-rider. Started taking hunter/jumper lessons again last summer so looking for a horse to lease or half lease that’s beginner safe, bomb proof, etc. I’m currently...
  9. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    I grew up riding and showing but quit while I was in college. I started taking lessons again about 7 months ago and would like to half lease a horse. I talked to my trainer about it and I couldn’t believe the price. In addition to the required two lessons per week ($400 per month), I’d pay half...

    Hi everyone! I'm a bit confused on who to lease. I'm in between two mares; one's gray and one's chestnut. I get along extremely well with the chestnut and do genuinely prefer her more, but I'm caught up on the fact that the gray could teach me more since I have a bit of a difficult time with...

    Hello! This is my first post here, so sorry in advance if something's wonky. Anyways- I should start with the basics; I'm 21, I've been riding for five months, and I've recently started learning how to canter after only doing walk/trot lessons until I could properly keep my heels down. My...

    Hi! I’ve been riding for almost 2 years (english, hunter) I’m wondering if I would be ready to lease, and what type of lease? I have jumped around 2’/2’3.

    I am looking to lease a horse at the barn where I currently ride.I have ridden the horse several times and she feels like a good match and I would be able to take jumping lessons on her.

  18. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    So my dad's friend owns a horse that he doesn't really want, he would willingly give me the horse for free but we just don't have the money to board him somewhere.
