Children, little girls especially are often victim to being horse-crazy. Parents are often subjected to endless requests for a horse, or pony, or <strong>horse riding lessons</strong>. This can frequently annoy and irritate parents. Who often assume that horse ownership is out of reach. Owning a horse is very expensive. The local stable where I live charges $600 a month for board alone. That is more than the rent of my first apartment. Feed, turnout, lessons, tack, and veterinary care are all extra. This can mean that a monthly bill for keeping a horse can easily surpass $1000. Looking for alternatives can yield success surprisingly easily. Many owners especially once reach high school are unable to care for horses as well as they used to or to devote as much time their horses as they had been. Often they are eager to share the responsibility with someone else. Younger students or anyone interested can offer to share-board or lease their horse. "With share-boarding, the owner leases his horse out to a lessee for riding on certain days each week," says Donna Ewing, founder and president of the Hooved Animals Humane Society. "On the other days, the owner may ride the horse himself or the horse may be leased out to a second lessee." This type of lease typically does not involve the lease purchasing or maintaining his or her own tack or paying for veterinary, farrier, or other costs. However, the terms be modified so before signing a contract ensure the details. A full lease is the other common type of lease. This type of lease allows the lessee to ride the horse everyday as if it was his or her own horse. The terms of the lease often state that the horse must remain on the owner’s property. Often it is riders considering purchasing a horse that opt for a full lease. This is a good way to find out exactly what is involved in horse ownership. Often at the end of a lease term the lessee with have the option of purchasing the horse. By the end of a lease term the rider should be confident that the horse either is or is not a good match, or at least have a good idea of what they are looking for in horse. The terms of leases are often negotiable for both parties. The term of the lease is also negotiable. For a beginner, I would recommend no more than a month or two. For a full lease a typical cost is approximately $400 a month. For share-boarding the cost can be as little as $100. When negotiating <strong>horse riding lessons</strong>, ask if there are lessons available, and see if they can be worked into the cost. I have found that college and high school students are usually eager to share their love and knowledge of horses. Horse ownership is not for everyone. It is expensive and time consuming. Even if full ownership is not an option there are other ways to foster a child’s love of horses without mortgaging your home. It may take some investigating and some creativity, but there are many options available.
