Horses For Lease

Have you ever wanted to own a horse, but didn’t want the full expense of owning? Or do you perhaps want to take a lesson every week and then practice a little more often without the expense of another lesson? If so, then leasing a horse is most likely the perfect option for you! When one decides to lease a horse, they pay to ride that particular horse a certain number of times each week, but don’t have ALL the expenses that go along with owning a horse!

Here at SHEC we have many horses available for lease. Please view the horses for lease below to see which horse may be the best fit for you. The lease fees are at the bottom of this page, and the fees are the same for every horse on this page.

Most leases are month-to-month, but longer-term lease options are also available. In most lease situations, the horse owner will allow you to use their tack, grooming supplies, etc. The owner will also cover the cost of board, farrier, de-worming, supplements and vet bills (unless an issue occurs that was caused by the person leasing the horse).

If you are interested in leasing, you MUST schedule an private lesson/Evaluation lesson to ensure that the horse you want to lease is the fit for you. Our evaluation lessons are $55 and can be scheduled at any time.

Please note that if you are a beginner rider, you are NOT allowed to lease. In order to lease you must be able to successfully complete a private lesson and MUST be able to groom, tack up, and walk, trot and canter independently. Correct attire MUST be worn to lessons and to lease, and a lease agreement must be filled out before leasing commences.

Please contact Sara at 619-843-3243 with any questions you have regarding any horse(s) for lease on this site or to schedule a lesson. Thanks for your interest!



7 (Almost 8) Years Old
16.1 Hands

Arrow is very friendly with a goofy personality. He needs an intermediate or experienced rider, or a beginner with mandatory lessons. He has toted around 9-year-olds under supervision no problem and is a pretty laid back guy. With usually more woah than go, he needs someone who can establish their leadership and he will gladly follow. Arrow goes out on trail in small or large groups no problem and has gone on trail solo with minimal issues. He trailers, clips, ties and bathes. He’ll take you through about any obstacle in the arena or on trail. He has also done some jumping but doesn’t have any professional training in that area. Looking for $225 for 3-4 days a week.

Belgian / Quarter Cross

Belle is a beautiful Belgian / Quarter Cross and she has done it all! She has shown, been used in lessons, gone camping, jumped, done some dressage and is a trail rider’s dream come true. She has a great personality and is suitable for any rider. She has a wonderful floaty movement that is SO easy to sit to on long trail rides, yet it is also eye-catching enough for showing.

We have had nine-year-old inexperienced riders take Belle out on trail and she will always take care of them! You can put your husband on her one day and your child on her the next, knowing she will take care of them. Available for lease up to two days a week.

Brandy is a gorgeous Palomino Standardbred. She loves to work, is great on trail and is super quiet. She is also great with kids and husband safe. She stands quietly when saddled and is patient with beginners. Brandy is new to the show scene but she’s a quick learner with a kind eye.
