When we started leasing a horse we paid the horse owner's board which was $150 per month, half the farrier cost and half of any vet bills. There was a contract. It was a month by month basis, but had to give 30 days notice prior to ending the lease. We were able to ride anytime we wanted since the owner was never around. However, I have seen full ande partial leases before. Partial leases would allow multiple leasees on the one horse where you could only ride 2 or 3 days a week if it was you and another person. Full leases was where you were the only leasee and would comply to whatever terms the leaser put in the contract such as how often you can ride etc. If you do not board your horse, but have it at home, then you would probably ask for the cost of maybe feed instead of board. You can look on Craigslist to see what lease prices are in your area to get a better idea if you need to.

Basically the cost issue would be up to you along with any other rules since your horse is at your home. It would depend on how much you want the person leasing your horse to do. Lets say it would help you if that person helped clean stalls as part of the lease...then you would probably charge a cheaper rate. Decide how often you want the person to be able to ride or if it's whenever they want according to how much you are riding the horse etc. Decide if you want to include your own tack for use or if they need to bring their own. Also, what does this person intend on doing with the horse.....is it just to trail ride, learn about horses, a child needing practice time on a horse outside of lessons etc. Be honest with the type of activities your horse is capable of and what the limitations may be. Make sure people know what their boundries are with the horse and your property....can they come whenever they want at any hour? Do you want just one person leasing? Once you figure out the little things....make sure you do a contract and have them sign a document on if they should get hurt while riding your horse type thing. Also think about what happens if the horse gets injured while they are riding....

Alright, thanks! I'm definately going to do some reading up and look up a lot more info!

Leasing sounds like it would be great if I can find a leaser... or whatever you call it, lol.
