Horses for Lease

Soft Landing Stables offers a variety of horses for lease.  Leases range from $300-$550 per month and include 2-5 days of riding per week, use of SLS facilities and amenities (excluding tack), routine veterinary care (vaccinations, coggins, etc.) and farrier care. Lessons are additional and required with some horses, preferred with others.

SLS prefers that riders who lease SLS horses ride in their own tack.  Proper saddle fit, bit size and type, and bridle adjustment can be the source of many behavioral problems stemming from discomfort of poorly fitting tack.  
To ensure the safety and comfort of our horses and your safety as the rider, we may ask to check that your tack fits appropriately prior to beginning your lease.

Tack may also be rented from SLS if needed for $50/mo, based on availability. Riders are responsible for loss, damage, and proper cleaning and care of all SLS tack.

All riders who lease an SLS horse are required to wear an ASTM/SEI certified helmet at all times while mounted. SLS does not offer helmet rentals.

On occasion, horses belonging to SLS boarders may come available for lease. While we are happy to present these horses for lease on our website, the lease fees as well as inclusions and exclusions are at the sole discretion of the owner.

Please note that SLS strongly encourages all boarders and lessors to seek to enhance their skills. In order to support an environment of continual growth for both horse and rider, SLS requests that all boarders and lessors take weekly lessons with one of our resident trainers in dressage, hunter/jumper or pleasure riding. Please visit our "Lessons and Training" page for additional information.

Topper
is a 16'2' black OTTB with four socks and a lightning bolt blaze. He is a total sweetheart and has very fancy gaits.
Topper is a sensitive individual who requires a special kind of rider. He needs someone who is intermediate to advanced and enjoys a challenge. He needs someone with a strong seat and lots of patience. He is not a trail or show horse. In return his rider will have a gorgeous, talented gelding who adores attention. There are several pix and videos of Topper below. Please email us if interested in coming out to try him.
Here is a link to his video on our Facebook page:
