Cornerstone Farm Lease Program
Cornerstone Farm offers a lease program for riders who qualify. This is a great opportunity to increase riding skills and answer the question of “Mom & Dad…I WANT a HORSE!”. Because… if after show team lessons and lease days of riding and they STILL want to go to the barn everyday — THEN it might be time to start thinking about a horse of your own!
Leases will only be extended to riders enrolled in show team lessons who are able to tack up and untack by themselves. A pre-test will be arranged prior to a leasing contract being signed. Riders are only able to ride with supervision. This means riding times must be coordinated with Leslie OR a parent MUST stay and supervise their child at all times. At NO TIME may a student be left at the barn UNSUPERVISED. This is for everyone’s safety!
Half Leases require a minimum of 6 month contract. Partial Leases may be month to month. All leases require a contract and must have 30 days notice before terminating lease. Leases withdrawn before contract end or without notice will be expected to be paid in full. Full lease students have first right to their contracted horse for shows or CSF activities. Half lease students are also given first priority to lease horses prior to an event. Full leasing is available on select horses – this is the same as owning your own horse with unlimited use and access (requires full board contract).
Lease riding is NOT a lesson – but a chance to come out and ride FOR FUN! Lease students MUST have their own helmet and boots. Partial/Half lease students are asked to purchase a bottle of fly spray and one bottle of leather cleaner (Leslie will let you know what kind) as needed for their horse/pony. Full lease students are charged a supply fee with their lease. Lease students must take care of their horse and tack properly EACH time they ride. Full lease students are expected to purchase their own tack. Tack may be rented for a short period of time while acquiring equipment. Half/Partial lease students may rent tack, but must not interfere with lesson students who have first right to equipment. An orientation meeting will be held for all lease students and their parents which is MANDATORY!
Full Leases are for students interested in riding 2 x week without purchasing a horse. HalfLeases require riding on pre-determined day. See Leslie for more info.
Please contact Leslie for more info and invitation to the parent meeting!
