Loaning a horse (in the UK)?
I live in the Yorkshire and am now allowed to loan a horse next summer. I would resembling some useful information on the general terms and what is the recommended even of skill needed, i am wanting a older horse around 15hh. Helpful answers appreciated.
It is all up to the owner and you purely have to talk it out with them.
As an example - I know someone who had a horse on loan and it had to live at the owner's place, she have to do all the work but the owner paid for the food and bedding shoes and insurance. The girl paid lb15 a week.
I know someone else who have one and had to arrange transport and livery for it. They paid for everything ( food, shoes etc) and didn't pay the owner anything.
for anyone sharing/loaning/owning a horse, it really help to be a very confident rider and very sure of equine aid.
Depending on what dicipline/ competing you want to do(if you do anyway..) will depend on the breed. If it's your first time, a good alrounder will be good. cobs are great, as long as you ride them and institution them enough so they wont take the mickey-- they can be very strong. a local breed is also a good choice. crossbreeds are good too.
Make sure you know as much in the order of the horse as possible, and whether they can easily be clipped/shod/boxed etc. :)
