Many Horses for adoption. Lease to own options & payment plans.
Owning a horse is a huge commitment of time and money
We think it's smart to lease a horse before you buy to make sure that you're ready for that commitment.Leasing allows you to try the horsey lifestyle to see if it fits
Who is eligible to lease?
Our students always have the first option when we have a horse available to lease -- but it really comes down to finding the right person for that horse. It's important to match the personalities of the horse and owner. We also look for riders with training and experience that are appropriate for the horse's training and experience.
Horses are unable to fend for themselves, so we only lease our horses to people with the maturity to be responsible and safe, the ability to handle the physical work around the barn, and the willingness to learn. Keeping horses is a never-ending learning experience! You must be able to demonstrate Green Level Horse keeping skills and knowledge (or above) to be eligible for a lease.
Parents who lease a horse for their child must also be active participants in helping their child learn and perform horse keeping chores -- leasing is not a drop-off activity! We are unable to supervise your child on her lease days, and expect parents to monitor the child's activities.
How much does it cost to lease a horse?
You pay one low monthly lease fee -- and we pay all stabling costs, including feed, hay, worming, veterinary and farrier care. We usually require a 3-month minimum lease period, which includes a 30-day trial.
Most -- but not all -- of the horses we offer for lease are school horses here , which means that they're only available for quarter or half leases:
QUARTER LEASE: For $85 a month, quarter-lease students may ride one day per week, including preferred use of that horse for regular lessons, camps etc.
HALF LEASE: Half-leasing for $250 per month gives you a horse of your own three days each week, including one free lesson, preferred use of that horse for your riding lessons, camps etc.
FULL LEASE: For $450 per month, We take care of all the bills except when taken off property including 2 free lessons,and exclusive use of horse .
Full Lease $25 off a month for 1 year lease & $25 off a month for multiple horses
How a typical horse lease works:
[Mystic] We offer quarter (two days per week), half (three days per week), and full leases (she's all yours!) on a 3-, 6- or 12-month basis, with a 30-day trial.
Our lease options allow you to spend additional days with your favorite school horse. On lease days, you may groom, do ground training, ride your horse, or just hang out and love on them.
If you're interested in leasing one of our horses, you should be prepared to pitch in & help with barn chores -- that means helping to feed, clean stalls one day a week, & to help keep the place clean and safe. Students must agree to all riding & horse care expectations actively working to expand their unmounted knowledge. We have really high standards for horse care, and we'll be happy to teach you.
To keep you & our horses safe and happy, some restrictions may apply depending upon your level. (For example, you can't jump until we've taught you to do so safely).
In the event that a leased horse becomes lame or otherwise unfit for work, we will provide a substitute ride if possible, but please remember that we cannot guarantee make-up lease days if you skip a day due to inclement weather, holidays or other scheduling conflicts.
