    Default Horseless Rider - Austin, TX

    I recently moved to Austin, Texas and am looking for a horse to ride. I can't afford a regular part-lease, but would be happy to work off some riding time. At my previous barn I mucked stalls, turned in/out, and fed in exchange for a lease ride, so that kind of arrangement is totally cool with me. Looking to ride English, hunter/jumper or dressage. I also work from home so my schedule is flexible (I can work AM, midday, PM or weekends).

    Anything within 20-25 minutes of north Austin (Pflugerville, Round Rock, Manor) would be great!

    Default I need a horse! Raleigh, NC

    I've ridden and shown H/J and eq for over 13 years. I'm now a senior in college and have some extra time on my hands to get back in the saddle. I've ridden minimally while in college but have ridden a lot lately for a friend healing from injury, but she is now cleared to ride so I'm horseless again.

    I prefer larger horses (15hh+) as I'm 5'9'' but have ridden ponies as small as 13.3hh.

    I'm dependable, reliable, responsible, and smart (I'm an engineering student); I am not a liability in your barn. I have my own tack, and am willing to help out around the barn in exchange for rides if need be. I can adapt to your barns rules or your riding styles. I'd be happy with anything from trail riding, to bringing a horse back into shape for showing. I'm also a great conversationalist, so if you have two horses and want a friend to trail ride with, I'd be more than happy to accompany you :-)

    I'd like something within 20 minutes of 27606 zip code.

    Please PM me for more info, thanks in advance!

    Before coming to pharmacy school I was working as a barn manager, and have spent lots of years as a working student and professional groom. I brought two of my own horses up to training level eventing, and have ridden numerous others. I am not picky at all, and I will ride anything that is not dangerous (I have health insurance, but I'd rather not use it if I don't have to.) As a side note, I am small enough to ride medium to large ponies.
    So if anyone needs a body to hack out your horse(s), exercise it, or anything more, please let me know.

    I am also more than willing to come do barn work! Even if there is no riding! I am telling you I am desperate!

    check your pm's - I might have a horse for you if you are still looking.

    Default Riderless horse in Eugene, OR

    Work really picks up for me in the winter and I need someone to ride my horse. Willing to consider a lease to the right person/situation.

    6 year old mare, just coming back from an injury. Has had professional dressage training, but is still a bit of a project. Has the aptitude for lower level dressage and hunter/jumper, could be an event prospect as well.

    I'm open to ideas, I just don't want her to sit in a field all winter with no job.
    It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.

    Default Riderless Horse - NoVa

    I have a 10 year old, 16h palomino AQHA gelding for 1/2 lease in northern VA (Catlett). He is an all around horse: western pleasure, hunter under saddle, jumping, and dressage. Quiet, well mannered but will make you work every second. He packs my 5 year old daughter without any problems.

    I prefer the leaser to be able to w/t/c comfortably. Lease includes 1/2 board, farrier, feed, and insurance.
    We could all take a lesson from crayons some are sharp, some are beautiful, some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they still learn to live in the same box. Unknown.

    I've been away from the equines for far too long and would really appreciate the chance to be around them. I took lessons in basic English/hunt seat for 20+ years but am out of practice - and timid. Starting all over again would be great. I'm half an hour outside Philadelphia (19406) and have a car, so if you're in Chester, Delaware or Montgomery County, please PM me!

    Default Horseless Rider in So. Palm Beach County, FL

    Hi all!

    Horseless rider in the southern Palm Beach County, FL area looking for a 1-3x per week ride in order to re-build my strength and stamina.

    I've been a hunter/jumper rider for about 20 years, although I've taken the past few years off since my horse retired and I relocated from IL to FL.

    Riding down here is CRAZY expensive, and I'm on a tight budget (because everything else down here is expensive, too!), so I'm hoping some nice COTHer can help me out.

    I live in Boynton, work in Delray (east). Willing to go as far as West Palm or Fort Lauderdale (incl. Davie/Weston/SW Ranches).

    Please send me a PM or better yet, email me at horselessrider28 at gmail dot com

    Default Horseless Rider in North AL

    Hi all! I'm an eventer and dressage rider in north Alabama looking for a horse to ride a few times a week. I've recently competed successfully at training level in eventing and 1st level (schooling all 2nd level) in dressage. I have a lot of experience with young/green horses, and brought my last horse along with the help of my trainer. I would love a chance to ride a horse I could jump, but just dressage would be fun too. I work at two part time jobs and will have a somewhat random schedule, but I'm willing to work whatever out.

    I'm located near Huntsville, and am willing to drive depending on the horse/situation. Let me know if anyone has a horse they'd like to get a little more work! I can give riding references if you want them.

    They aren't exactly riderless but there are 4 of them and 1 of me! Would love to have a competent dressage or hunter rider come ride with me. Private barn with an outdoor dressage arena and large 12-15 acre field to ride in.

    All mares so need to be a "mare person." Warmbloods that range in age from 5-18.

    Possible off-farm free lease available if things work out after several rides.

    Default Horseless Rider Silverspring/DC area

    I sold my horses, truck and trailer last August in order to attend University of Maryland, College Park for what else equine studies. I kept the majority of my riding stuff, and would love to find something to sit on.
    Before coming to school I was working as a barn manager, and have spent lots of years as a working student and professional groom. I brought two of my own horses up to training level eventing, and have ridden numerous others. I am not picky at all, and I will ride anything, OTTB's are my favorite and the ones I'm most experienced in exercising! Fabulous references working in and around Maryland!
    So if anyone needs a body to hack out your horse(s), exercise it, or anything more, please let me know.

    Down in a holler in Middle Tennessee

    Default Riderless horse--middle TN

    Still looking for a rider for Rhys, a 14.1 hh Connemara/Arab cross gelding. He's not stocky, so needs a smaller rider (below 160 lbs). He's fairly green and was poorly started so needs some re-training work, but he's fun to ride and a sweetie. Looking for someone experienced w/ green horses. I have lights at my riding arena, access to trails, and the right person could really benefit!

    Default Horseless rider Central OK

    Hey folks! I moved to central Oklahoma to attend veterinary school and brought along my lovely TB, who promptly became the World's Most Interesting Neurologic Case and is not rideable at the moment. I am also losing my MIND not riding and would love to find something locally - I love TBs, but am happy to sit on just about anything, even the young and stupid variety.
    I have been riding hunters/eq/jumpers with some dressage for almost 20 years, have trained a couple of my own up from green, worked at numerous barns, and taught for many years. Please please please PM if you have something that wants some extra saddle time!

    Default Riderless horse near Twin Cities MN OR Bloomington IL

    Due to a change in her job situation, my horse's lease situation is ending. She is currently across the river from the TC area, in WI; I am near Bloomington IL and will bring her down here if I don't find anything up there!

    15.2, 20 y/o TB mare. Well trained, has done hunters, dressage, low level eventing, PC, etc. Good manners, easy to deal with, no special needs other than soaked grain and blanketing. Loves to jump, sane and fun!

    looking for full free lease if stays up north, or 1/2 to full if she comes down here.
    ****Indecision may or may not be my problem****

    Default Horseless Rider-Horry County/Myrtle Beach SC

    I am going down south in a few weeks and I know I will have at least three days during my 10 day stay that I will have off of work but nothing to do. I am visiting my boyfriend and he will be busy between the hours of 8a-6p, I am planning on working from his house but there will be some days I do not have work and he will be gone all day. I would love to ride if anyone's horses could use schooled. I am a very experienced rider, great with green/young horses as well as the experienced show mounts. I have been a working student for a few trainers in the past but did not go pro due to financial circumstances. I would be able to provide photos as well as professional references.

    While it will be nice to get away for 10 days I hate to miss that much time in the saddle! The only catch would be that I won't have a car while on my trip. Opinions and suggestions are always appreciated. We may even be able to establish a relationship as there is a chance I will be in town every few months.

    Default Dressage/trail Horses 1/2 -full lease - Chicago area north

    I have more horses then I can/want to ride everyday. Sane, sweet, nice to be around, some very competitive dressage. Training to PSG, some are excellent on trails as well. Farm offers indoor/outdoor, easy access to trails. Very private quiet facility. Come relax and enjoy
    Located near I94 so super easy to get to.
    Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.
