    It depends.

    Sometimes I have paid, sometimes I haven't.

    It depends on the level of the horse relative to me, what I want to achieve from the lease, the type of lease, etc.

    My horse had a still-healing injury that was clearly going to scar when I bought him, so a healed scar on a horse that has been in work/sound with it would not be a huge concern.

    I'm in a snarky mood.

    I'd tell her I was sorry she found riding him to be such a chore, and I would hate to keep burdening her with that. Then I'd cancel the lease, bring the horse close to home,...

    A light seat in Dressage is not the same as a light seat (e.g. 3-point) seat in Hunters.

    If I recall correctly, your WB mare sat on the market a lot longer than you expected and you asked several times on this forum why she wasn't selling.

    Yes. They will usually have a different focus than the home instructor, which can be good to provide some balance/different perspective. Or they will focus on the same thing, but say it in a...
