Whether you're the owner of a horse, or you're looking to lease one, you'll want to use a Horse Lease designed especially for your situation. Having an agreement in writing not only helps cover you from the legal side of things, it also helps ensure that the animal is well-cared for. And if any questions crop up about the arrangement, you'll be able to refer to your written agreement.
A Horse Lease is a useful tool for horse owners and lessees to lay out the terms of their arrangement. There are two main types of horse lease: full-time or shared-boarding. A full-time horse lease gives the lessee (aka "borrower") full access to the horse, and often more responsibility for the boarding costs and veterinary care. In a shared-boarding lease, both parties have access to the horse, and while there are more restrictions on what the lessee can do, the owner has more financial responsibilities for the horse's care. In your Horse Lease, you'll want to include details like: the names of the owner and of the lessee; the lease's start and end dates; a description of the horse, including its estimated value; how and when lease payments will be made; who's responsible for veterinary care; and any restrictions on using the horse for shows or other special events. If you're share-boarding a horse, you'll want to explain any usage limits, such as specific dates and times when the horse can be used by a certain party.
