  1. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    GUYS IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING! I'm going to lease a horse! Don't worry, I'm going to do lots of research, going to be very careful who I deal with including the people and the horse and the location, and probably won't ride alone. That being said....I'm at a loss as where to find someone who...
  2. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hello! I am thinking about leasing a horse! However, I do not have any real-life friends whom I can speak to to see how the process is. I understand it's different for everyone. And I understand that I need a horse that fits me and my abilities. I always need a horse whom I can bond with on the...
  3. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hi all! I'm going to start leasing a horse in January! The contract is for 3 rides a week, 1 being a lesson. This will be my first time leasing, does anyone have advice on how I can structure the 2 times a week that I'll be riding without an instructor? I've ridden a couple times on my own in...
  4. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hi!! I need some advice on half leasing! I have been riding for about 2.5 years and know basic things- walk, trot, canter, jumping, grooming, tacking, getting horse from paddock etc. I have been wanting to further my riding and half lease for awhile now. I have been to a few barns and switched...
  5. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    I've posted something like this a few months ago, but this time I have a different set of mares to choose between: the big draft or appaloosa. The draft has a big canter, as drafts do, and it's not something I'm entirely comfortable with- certainly something I've gotten used to, though, and I...

    Hi everyone! I have really exciting news: I'm going to start leasing a four year old mare in the next few weeks! She's amazing and I feel so grateful that my trainer's are deciding to trust me with her, which brings me to my question: tips and tricks for training, taking care of, and...

    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...
  8. 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...
  9. Ridden Showing, Hunter/Jumper, Equitation
    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 have a solid walk, trot, canter, and jumping down. I only have weekly lessons at the moment though. My ideal lease would be a horse that...
  10. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    Hi! I have been leasing a Saddlebred since June that was going great, but he will almost never canter no matter the efforts. He has begun to be a little full of himself and went after a kid teeth-bared and ears pinned when she had gone to get his pasture mate. Since I want to canter every time I...
  11. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    Long story short, I bought a skinny little thoroughbred 3 years ago that was supposedly a calm trail horse. Turned out he was a horrible bucker and dangerous to ride. Within a year, I ended up retiring him, due to the fact I think his bucking was caused by an unknown physical issue and was now...

    Man oh man, is it hard. I'm not sure of the terminology of what I'm looking for, however. In short, I'm looking for someone who will go on rides together with me (I have two horses and one pony, and one of them is really lazy at ponying) during the year, or carriage rides. And just walks with...
  13. Horse Talk
    We've recently put ourselves in a sticky situation, it was the product of lots of miscommunications and people making "decisions" without talking to one another and now we want to get everything sorted out and in writing to cover our own bums... Some back story: Our trainer was 'leasing' our...
  14. Horse Talk
    Hi, Just to clarify, I'm extremely new to HorseForums. I live in a suburban area and am looking for an area to agist my horse, but I have some questions. What are the priorities/responsibilities for the owner of the horse? What does the owner of the property generally commit to? And please...
  15. Horse Talk
    Hello :) I am strongly thinking about going ahead and leasing Diamond, my 14.1hh Arab pony, out for a little while. I just believe she would be happier in another family that would do some eventing with her, and really ride her and get her in shape. She is happiest in work. Meanwhile, I was...

    I will be leasing a horse soon but I need to know WHEN to lease if I will be competing in the fair in the summer of 2013. How much prep time will I need before the summer?
