Half Lease, What Should I Charge
Posted 19 February 2012 - 03:41 PM
I am really busy and this horse would benefit from more riding
He is on self care so the lessee would be another set of eyes on him
A little extra money a month wouldn't hurt
and finally, a person who might be able to watch him when I'm travelling
So his board is $250, which doesn't include anything. I have to buy all his hay grain and shavings and do all labor. But I get use of great pastures, lovely barn, and riding ring.
One of my hopes was that the person leasing could ride during the week and on those days also feed him so if I'm busy at work I don't have to make an additional drive either super early in the AM or late after work to feed him. Because of that, I would discount the price.
I was thinking $100/month for 2-3 rides a week and on those riding days also feed him and muck stall if needed. Does that seem like too much?
I leased my other gelding all last year and it worked out really well, so I am aware of some leasing pitfalls. Because of that I have a fairly detailed lease agreement. Thanks, love to hear your input

Ultimately, it depends on you, but I wouldn't just give my horse to someone to ride.

So I think that someone should be paying for half at least for 3 days a riding if they aren't helping. and If they are you should probably be getting at least 150 imo... But I don't know enough about it.
