Abernathy Farm

Leasing & Sales

Leasing a horse on a monthly basis is available to current Abernathy Farm Lessons students. Students are required to take weekly lessons each month to be eligible to lease one of our lesson horses. Two lessons are included in the price of the lease! We offer a half lease where you have access to ride the horse 3 days per week.

When you lease a horse you are responsible for safely and correctly catching, grooming, tacking  and turning the horse back out when you are finished riding. Abernathy Farm is responsible for the horse's upkeep, regular vet, and farrier care.

Leasing options are available on a monthly basis. You can lease a horse for just one month or for as long as you like. This is a great option for parents who are worried their child may grow out of horses or adults with too many responsibilities to care for a horse full time
