    Default Quick dumb question about PB agreements

    Sorry if this has been answered before -- I did a quick search and came up empty....

    DD is at university and can't ride as much as she would like, so we've arranged for a great kid to part-board her horse - yay! The kid is 17, so I'm wondering -- is he actually the lessee (with his parent's signature on the contract), or am I entering into an agreement with one of his parents? Just want to know who to fill in on the appropriate lines

    Thanks!!

    I have not been on your end but I've been the part-boarder several times & frequently ride at a place where lesson kids pb/lease boarders' horses regularly. The legal agreement is always between owner & parent/legal guardian.

    I have never had an underage shareboarder, but when I did contract for part board it was verbal only.

    With a minor I'd certainly put things in writing with the responsible adult (parents or guardian).

    As I understand it, minors cannot enter into legal contracts, so your agreement would be pretty well null and void if something were to happen. So yeah, you could have them put their name on it but put the legal guardian's name on there too.

    Thanks, all. I know the parent's name has to be on it; I am just wondering if the lessee is the kid, with the parents signing the contract, or if the kid's name never appears on the contract and the parent is listed as the lessee.

    I appreciate the feedback!
