Horse Leasing Program
Why leasing a horse might be right for you:
Owning a horse can be a great commitment for some people. This is why we created the Hunt View Riding Academy Leasing Program. Leasing allows you to try the horse lifestyle without the long term commitment.
About our Leasing Program:
-Leasing is far less expensive than owning a horse. You can have the benefits of owning a horse without the long life commitment that comes from owning a horse.
-You can ease into the demands of a horse-keeping schedule.
-Leasing allows parents to evaluate a child's commitment to riding and horse care.
-Ending a lease is easier and much less traumatic than having to sell a horse that you no longer want.
Who is eligible to lease?
Both adults and children are eligible to lease a horse. We make our best efforts to match you with the right horse. It's important to match the personalities and level of riding skill of the lessee and the horse.
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. Working with horses is a never-ending learning experience!
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 we expect parents to monitor the child's activities.
How much does it cost to lease a horse?
You pay one monthly lease fee -- and we pay all stabling costs, including feed, hay, shavings, veterinary and farrier care. We usually require a 3-month minimum lease period.
LEASE: For $350 per month, we'll reserve three days per week your exclusive use of the horse.
How a typical horse lease works:
We offer 3-, 6- or 12-month leases.
On lease days, you may groom, do ground training, ride your horse, and just hang out with your horse.
If you're interested in leasing one of our horses, you should be prepared to pitch in and help with barn chores -- that means helping to feed, clean stalls one day a week, and to help keep the place clean and safe. Students must agree to all riding and horse care expectations, actively working to expand their unmounted knowledge.
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.
The first step, of course, is to contact us to discuss options.
