Explore Horse Ownership
Explore the horse ownership experience by looking at horses and ponies for lease. Leasing a horse or pony offers a practical solution for many parents of young horse riders that are growing or stepping up from school horses.
A lease is also a great way to learn your chosen horse discipline with the help of an older, more experienced and saintly equine.
So what should you expect to pay to lease your next mount instead of buying?
Generally, prepare to pay a third of the horse’s value for top show horses and 50% of the value for a yearly lease for horses valued at, or below, $50,000. You'll also want to figure in a 10-15% commission for your trainer and additional expenses like horse insurance.
