View Full Version : Seeking article sources: trainers who lease facility or block of stalls

I'm posting here in search of sources for the above storyline for a major trainers' magazine. Here are my assignment guidelines:

A Look at Leasing: Here I wanted to look at equine professionals who do not have their own facilities but lease. There are two ways to do it--lease the entire facility or lease a block of stalls. Let's look at the pros and cons of each. What should you be responsible for and what should the owner cover? Let's talk to both sides of the equation. Who do the clients pay? What are the advantages to leasing rather than owning...or disadvantages. What should a minimal lease contain to protect both parties? A way to opt-out. Would like the good, bad and ugly here. Someone's bad experience is as educational as someone's good.

Thanks for input. Story will include photo.
