Please note, this does NOT include the horses lease fee, this is the horse & riders training fee. Client is also responsible for the horses lease fee if applicable. Full leasing clients are also responsible for the same “Monthly grain & feeding service” fee as the full training clients. Apart from the lease fee, clients are also responsible for the typical horse fees (shoes, vet, etc…) Essentially a full lease allows you to have the all the benefits of owning a horse with the option and ability to move up as needed or purchase the horse after the lease has come to an end. Typical lease fees are set at 25% of the horses sale price, however this isn’t always applicable. A lease contract will be signed between the client and the horses owner, major medical and mortality insurance is highly suggested and often required to be carried by the client on behalf of the horse.

A half lease is the best option for the rider who someday would like to own but cannot at the moment, it is also a good situation for a rider who is interested in half leasing their horse out. The half lease includes 3 lessons a week which will enable the rider to be able to treat the horse as if it is their own on each lesson day. The number of lessons included in half training are intended to provide the rider with the ideal amount of time in the saddle each week, this will enable the rider to excel at an increased and productive pace, while not having to commit to the ownership of a horse. The client owned half lease fee is LOOSELY BASED on HALF of the horses fees. Riders may also have several additional hack days each month if the horses schedule permits . Riders who are half leasing are able to show as well as receive all of the benefits of the full training package. Half leasing is highly encouraged for riders who intend on showing and spending as much time at the barn is possible. For the younger riders, half leasing allows you to come to the barn as much as they would like, even during their non-lesson days.
The half lease fee is all inclusive and has no hidden or additional fees at the barn.
The owner of the horse is responsible for any typical vet maintenance such as vaccinations, teeth, etc...
