Leasing a horse gives you a great introduction to the responsiblity to owning a horse and allows you the focused option of a consistant riding mount to build your skill
Affordable - this is a great option for those who are not ready for the full financial responsibility of horse ownership.
Flexible - with a half lease, you have the flexability of not having to ride or work with your horse every single day but instead it allows you to have balance to work on the other parts of your life - family, school and work.
Consistancy - Leasing a horse allows you to have a consistant mount to work on your skill and build on what you have learned
Trial Run - When you lease a horse, you are able to experience all of the parts of horse ownership without the initial investment. This gives you great perspective as to what kind of horse you need and you go into the phase of purchasing your own horse more informed.
Temporary - A great benefit of leasing a horse is that the situation is temporary. If your skill outgrows the horse, the horse becomes injured or you and the horse are not a great team you are able to end the lease and look for a more fitting situation.
