Space available for an intermediate or experienced rider.
The property is located next to the galloping goose trail for miles of trail riding and a short hack away from the Metchosin Community Riding Ring (requires registration at the Community Hall). There is also a sand round pen on the property available for use.
The lease is a month to month arrangement. It's $150 a month for 1 day a week or $200 a month for 2 days a week (preference given to those that want to ride two days a week). Longer lease terms are negotiable or a $15 discount given for paddock, field cleaning and filling waters on the following weekdays: Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday is also available.
The lease provides use of the horses tack and equipment, but not the rider's helmet or boots. There is general care required of the horse on your riding days, fly spray, hoof care, etc. The horse is yours on your designated lease day and you can ride anytime within barn hours 9:00am-8:00pm (daylight hours). The evening hours will extend as the daylight does.
Horse Council of BC (HCBC) insurance and wearing regulation safety equipment - certified riding helmet and boots with a heel is mandatory.
Duff: 15.1hh quarter horse gelding. English tack available for use. He is confident on the trails and more whoa that go. He needs a confident rider on the trails with light hands. Although, he's only 10 he prefers to have someone that wants to walk and trot, as he isn't a high energy horse.
He's available any day of the week and is also available to purchase for $, so if you are interested in an on property lease trial and purchase arrangement after a certain amount of time that could be arranged. If you are only interested in leasing, I do have other horses available to lease, if Duff does find his heart person.
If this interests you and you'd like to come and try him out, please send me an email.
