For Sale or Lease
Weekend housework, go away. I can come back and take care of you on another day! And just that easily, the dust will add another layer. I've got better things to do!
After days of heat and humidity, today is simply scrumptious. Sunny with a cool breeze and anticipated high of 82. Perfect for outdoor activities. In fact, it would be a crime to stay inside!
An outdoor activity I love but haven't done in a while, is horseback riding. I grew up wishing (frequently) for a horse. It never happened. I'm still not really in a position to get one, but there is another way.
If you live near a riding stable or boarding facility check on whether they lease their horses. That's a nifty policy that allows you to have one specific horse that is yours alone to ride, train, and enjoy. Conveniently, the animal's daily maintenance and vet care are still provided by the facility. You can visit as frequently as you wish. You will need your own saddle, bridle, and equipment. After all it's "your" horse for as long as you lease it! If you decide to lease, try and find a place that offers plenty of trails to ride. Otherwise you'll need a horse trailer for hauling your big baby to where the action is.
I have a friend who leased a horse for nearly a year. They bonded so well, that she ended up buying it. Pretty nifty way to get your horsey fix, isn't it?
