Lease and Sponsor Opportunities
Riders at CCF have the opportunity to lease or sponsor a horse or pony. Leasing and Sponsorship’s help riders develop a special relationship and solidifies a bond with one specific horse or pony. This allows the rider a sense of possession without the responsibilities of ownership. It also allows the riders to ride the same horse every lesson, and provides claim to come out and ride, groom, and play with their leased or sponsored pony outside of lessons.
Riders in a lease or sponsor program also have the opportunity to jump higher in lessons and show at a bigger height than riders just taking lessons. These riders are also exempt from the Non-Ownership Horse Fee at shows.
SPONSOR v. LEASE DEFINED:
A sponsor consists of 3 days each week, while a lease is 4-5. In a lease, the horse or pony is exclusively for the lessee. In a 1/2 sponsor, ponies and horses may be ridden by other riders at CCF. A 1/2 sponsor or lease also gives riders the opportunity to go on trail rides.
Contact Renee or Ana for more information regarding sponsor and lease costs.
