Why would I want to lease a horse?
Leasing a horse is the next step in advancing your equestrian skills. With leasing, you get the whole experience of owning a horse with half the cost and no long-term ownership commitment. But it feels like you own a horse! At Apex, we have several horses available for a full or half lease.
What are the benefits of leasing versus just taking lessons?
By leasing a horse at Apex, you will gain some precedence in various areas of the program. You will be offered more make-up options for canceled lessons. You will get your horse for tournaments and academy competitions over other riders.
Your lease will include one private lesson and one group lesson per week as part of the monthly fee. You can then purchase additional lessons on top of that for a discounted rate.
We offer “Drop Off Days” at the farm throughout the year, over breaks and holidays lease students are welcome to hang out on these days at no charge. Students will groom horses for the trainers, learn everyday skills around the farm, play games and get to ride extra horses if available.
As a lease student, you are setting yourself up for either more experience in the show world or for those that don't want to show just more one-on-one experience with the horses.
