To be able to say "I have a horse!" what a huge statement that is for a child to be able to make. To have a horse at the barn that is waiting just for them is a feeling indescribable by most, except for the smile from ear to ear and glossy eyes filled with warmth and love for their very own horse. The feeling of unconditional love and friendship that comes with having a horse to look after and bond with, tell all your secrets too and even your troubles. To feel you have a best friend that loves you just the way you are. Priceless!
A lease of a horse includes the responsibility of taking care of the horse for example; grooming, bathing, cleaning its stall and paddock area, cleaning and taking care of the horses saddle and bridle and other equipment and making sure the horse is looked over from head to toe and keeping a record of its care to learn responsible horsemanship practices and give an all around horse 'Ownership' experience. The amount of ride time is based on the level of lease provided by the person gifting the lease.
