Having a horse gives the rider the best opportunity for improvement, opportunity, success, character growth, and many lifelong skills. When you have a horse or pony it becomes easier to access saddle time and no time in the saddle is wasted time for an improving rider. It is our job to help pair riders with the best possible match for their goals and individual needs. With our large network and on property horses, it is always an enjoyable experience to find your perfect horse or pony. Whether you are looking for a top quality investment horse or the first intro lease pony for your child, we will guide you through the entire process. 

      When you move often, are inbetween riding levels, or first time horse owners; a lease can be appealing. The benefit of leasing  can be the flexible options to allow your family to become familiar with having a horse or pony.

When leasing you have the option to Half  lease or Full lease. When leasing, MOST  horses require the lease fee to be paid in full for the lease period. Typical lease periods range from 6-12 months. SELECT  on property horses have an option to pay lease fee monthly. When leasing a horse or pony you are responsible for the following:
