I read this article today and it provides a great case for leasing a horse for that first time rider no matter what age. It has a link to a Horse Cost Calculator that even makes more points to leasing a horse until you are certain. And of course also links to folks with lots of money that have kids riding horses in some very top notch places.
At Sierra Ranch, LLC we provide you with the horse owning experience without the responsibility until you are certain you are ready for that responsibility. We have seen several times a horse crazy teenager fall hard for her perfect horse, and then go off to college and not have time or money to keep the horses.
We provide our leasees with everything needed to learn about horses, gain experience so that you get the right horse, and without the up front cost involved with purchasing everything needed for the horse. We provide this for the cost of boarding a horse. Just $300 per month gets you full access to your equine experience.
The lease included for both rider and horse:
- A saddle that fits both rider and horse.
- A helmet for every ride and a vet when jumping for the rider.
- Regular veterinary care and farrier work for the horse.
- All vaccinations, worming and other veterinary care is included.
- The horse can be changed at the request of the rider without a penalty.
- The rider can progress and move to a more challenging horse that fits the rider’s skills.
- The rider and horse have access to transportation to events, trails, etc.
- All this at the same price as boarding a horse.
Leasing is a great option to learn more about the horse and see if you are the right match. It is different than a lesson horse in that you are the only person riding the horse.
Here at Sierra Ranch, LLC we prepare folks to begin horse ownership. We know many folks that have never owned a horse , let a lone an ex racing thoroughbred. These wonderful horses require some special care, just as they require a particular rider. We strive not only to make good matches, but responsible owners. We want each rider to know the limitations and expectation of the horse they are riding. And how to care for them if they choose to purchase one.
If you would like to lease one of the horses on this site, please contact us and we will set an appointment to meet a Champion!Deb Stowers Sierra Ranch, LLC 918-607-6094 http://sierraranchok.com/
