Whether you’re a seasoned pro or new to riding, leasing a horse is an ideal way to stay involved with horses without the expense and responsibility of boarding, vet and farrier bills, feed, and other care costs. Unlike owners, who are required to pay all of these pesky fees, lessees only pay a monthly fee for scheduled riding times. This option is ideal for any level rider who is committed to riding weekly and building a relationship with their horse.
