In order to make progress as a rider, spending a good deal of time in the saddle is a requirement. While purchasing a horse is a great option for some, it may not be for others. Another possibility is a lease (full or partial). If you are not ready for the commitment of horse ownership (and maybe even if you are), leasing is a great intermediary step. A partial lease is far less expensive than owning a horse and requires far less commitment. It is a great way to get extra practice time (and horsey enjoyment time!) so that you can continue increasing your skills, even if you are not ready or able to purchase. If you or your child would like to participate in horse shows but do not own your own horse, a lease is the way to do it. Showing requires an additional level of skill, both for safety sake and in order to do well. Leasing a horse will allow the student the extra practice time needed. For those interested more in Trail Riding, a lease is also a great option. For more information on LEASING AND RATES, click here!
When you are ready to make the step to purchase your own horse, we will be happy to assist you in making a wise choice! Buying the right horse can be very difficult! I would much rather help a student find the right horse than help them deal with the wrong one! If you are considering buying a horse and you are not an intermediate or above rider, I highly recommend beginning with riding lessons. It is quite common for novices to buy a horse that is too much for them and it is very difficult to bring a horse down to the level of the rider (and expensive).
