Bugger it I might as well put mine up. Sorry its long
The XXXX is where names were inserted. I really tried to be fair to both parties. I don't think I'd agree to let someone come onto my property without notice if i was trialling a horse, that seems a little intrusive to me. My lease is working out great. If i want to see my horse i just email the leasee and make a day and time
