Offered To Amy Hanssen Training Center Lesson Students Only
(Must Be Riding In A Minimum Of One Lesson Per Week.)

Horses owned by the Amy Hanssen Training Center are available to serious students for leasing. Leasing is recommended for students and parents considering buying a horse. The student incurs all expenses including board, shoeing and vet work. Students are considered boarders and are entitled to those benefits.

The leasing program is designed to allow an option to ownership to riders who do not presently own a horse. It brings closer involvement and more "horse hours" without the responsibility or financial obligations of purchasing a horse.

HORSE LEASING OPTIONS

The horse leasing program is set up with two basic options, each priced differently. However, other options are always possible. "LET'S TALK."

I. Private Lease:
With a private lease you are the only rider. If you choose this option, it is your responsibility to be sure the horse is turned out of its stall on a daily basis. If you are unable to be at the barn to do this, someone on the staff can exercise or turn out the horse for you. It is up to you to make these arrangements.

In addition to the exercise responsibility, a private lease is more costly than a semi-private lease.

II. Semi-Private Lease:
With a semi-private lease the horse is either leased to more than one rider or used, as needed, in the lesson program. If you are the only rider, a schedule for use of the horse will be arranged which does not conflict with the rider's. (In other words, the rider leasing the horse gets dibs.) If you are sharing a lease, you share exercise duties with the other rider and arrange a convenient schedule for use of the horse.

With a semi-private lease the barn automatically assumes the responsibility of turning the horse out of its stall on a daily basis.

Keep in Mind:
Some horses can be available to be leased and shown at Quarter Horse Shows. The pricing will be the same as the Private Lease. See Amy or Virginia to see what horses might be available.

MAINTENANCE OF A LEASED HORSE

Vet Care:

Under both leasing options regular veterinary care is paid by the farm. (Amy Hanssen Training Center)

Any negligent injury to the horse, however, will be the responsibility of the rider. Common sense should prevail here. Don't assume anything, if in doubt, ASK! (e.g. If the rider does something dumb, like tie the horse to a car door, the rider will pay for both repairs to the car door and to the horse.)

Shoeing:

  • Under a private lease shoeing is paid for by the rider leasing the horse.
  • Under a semi - private lease shoeing is paid for by the farm. (Amy Hanssen Training Center.)

Tack:

Saddles, bridles, and other tack will be provided by the farm. If a lesson is in progress and the tack you need is being used, you will have to wait until the lesson is over.

Showing
It is mandatory that your horse have a day of rest after each horse show. This means you may not ride the horse, but turning out and bathing is acceptable.
