Default Horse on Trial forms

Where abouts can I get my hands on a horse on trial form/contract? What should it state?

I'm a little nervous as I have someone coming up from down south to look at my horse and will bring a float with her and take him on trial if she likes him. She sounds legit. but really, how should I know? I've asked her to forward on some references so I can check it all out. And will get her to sign a contract. I will state on the contract that I would like continual photos during the time of the trial (or do you think that is a bit too much?)

Don't think there is more I can do. I don't have the funds nor time to go down there and check it all out for myself.
RIP my best friends, Chaos (11/09/00 - 23/09/-06), Hero (27/07/06 -24/06/09), Flash (1998 - 2011)

This is something that interests me as well. I am weiry about letting horses out on trial but know how important it is to finding that right home some times.
I don't think asking for photo's is to much will give you piece of mind at least to get them. Depends how long the trail is photo's once a week would be what I'd ask for as well as settling in one's.
Also state if the horse is to leave set property while on trial. To go to pony club etc. Who is to ride him/her. and if you want him rugged state that too.
After all you are selling him in his best interests it isn't to much to ask till he isn't yours

Sorry i dont have a lease agreement. I dont think it is to much asking for continual photos throughout the lease. If i were to ever lease out one of my horses, i'd be asking for monthly visits aswell as a continuous supply of photos

i did one up for the Trial period but had it as a 3 week lease with option to continue the lease at the end for a further 12months if all parties were happy.

one condition was that i could visit at any time at all without notice, also that family menbers and listed them were also to be able to view the horse at any time. \\

i also had that the horse could be removed by myself or family members at any time with or without notice if the horse in my view the horse wasnt recieving what i would call adequete care.

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

Horse Lease Agreement.

We, the undersigned, do hereby agree to the terms of lease involving
the horse:
Pre-existing condition/s:

The lease trial is to run from Friday 19th June 2009, until Friday 19th September 2009 and can be cancelled at any time with mutual consent. Cancellation may be made by the Owner, XXXX if there is failure by the Leasee XXXX to fulfill the conditions of the agreement as specified below. Cancellation may be made by the leasee if the above-mentioned horse fails to be suitable for the work desired of it or it fails to meet her requirements.

The Leasee agrees to take full responsibility for the care of the horse at her expense during such time as the animal is in their care and will follow good animal husbandry skills in protecting this animal from illness, injury or suffering. This will include worming, farrier, feed and veterinary care (only if the horse is injured in their care) as required. The owner will cover any vet bills that may arise from any pre-existing condition. In the event that the horse requires veterinary care the leasee is required to contact the owner.

The leasee accepts the said horse in current condition and will be required to ensure that the condition doesn’t deteriorate or that suitable actions will be taken if this occurs. The leasee agrees to allow the owner to site the horse once per month, either in person or via the emailing of recent photographs, to assess the horse’s condition.

The leasee accepts that no other persons are allowed to ride the horse unless permission has been granted by the Owner and a disclaimer has been signed. The leasee agrees that the abovementioned horse is not to be used for heavy competitive pursuits including but not limited to showjumping, campdrafting, cross country jumping, competitive endurance rides over 20km and other similarly athletic activities.

At the completion of the three month trial, the owner retains the right to:
Offer the leasee the option to renew a longer term lease,
Offer the leasee the option to purchase the horse via negotiation, or
Cease any further options to lease or buy.

The leasee accepts that Horse Riding is a Dangerous sport, that Horses are unpredictable animals and that the Owner XXXX XXXX will not be held responsible in such case as injury or death occurs.
