Some of the Hoofer horses will be available for leases during this semester. This is a great opportunity for members to ride more consistently outside of Hoofer lessons. You must be a senior rider to lease a Hoofer Horse. Before you read any further, understand that leasing a Hoofer horse is not your typical lease situation. Unlike most leases, the Hoofer Horses still go in lessons and can still be ridden by other people. Leasing a Hoofer Horse is more like discounted senior rider time. The more rides you book in advance, the cheaper each ride is.
Lessees must be senior riders. When determining lease agreements, especially when two or more people are interested in leasing the same horse, the leasing committee will consider riding ability, seniority within the club, commitment to fulfilling work hours, and riding goals. In the event that two people of equal qualifications wish to lease, the lease will rotate between the riders every three months.
If someone is interested in part-leasing a horse that is currently available for a half-lease or full-lease, they may part-lease the horse until someone offers to pay for a half- or full-lease.
Note: Hoofer Group lesson fees must be paid in full (i.e., you may not use your leased riding time towards "discounted" group lessons). Talk to the lesson coordinator if you have any questions about this policy.
