Temporarily Riderless Horse - Ocala, FL
I am having surgery in Boston on the 27th and will be away for at least 5 weeks. I had a lease lined up for my 3'6" hunter, but it has since fallen through and now I am looking for a temporary situation for him just to keep him exercised!
The horse: 11 y.o. 17+ HH big bodied TB. Arguably the easiest, kindest boy you will ever meet! Auto everything, jumps around kicking quiet and on the buckle in a D-ring snaffle. He currently lives on my private farm, but I would be willing for him to go on a short-term free lease to the right situation. Super easy keeper, lives out 12+ hours a day. I minimally need someone to come hack him 3 days a week (your schedule would have to be a bit flexible as I don't want anyone riding on my property unsupervised and my manager works part time). Please email me if you're interested!
Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

Riderless horse near Redmond, WA
I have a lovely mare who has been out on lease. She has learned barrels and is apparently pretty good at it! I on the other hand know nothing about games and such and am not the right rider to keep this horse fit (she is for sale). She is good on the trail too, and seriously, just W/T/C riding English would benefit her general fitness.
This could work any number of ways... I would lease her out again. I would meet up at one of several nearby locations. After the initial meet and greet I'd probably be fine with having you take her to one of these locations as your schedule allowed (bringing her to/from our barn).
She loves to please and loves to have a job and I don't want all the good stuff she has just learned to go to waste!
Beautiful 12yo registered Paint, buckskin tobiano, about 15hh, stout. Starts out nervous but not spooky or reactive. Light and responsive -- would be great for showmanship or groundwork/liberty stuff too.

Horseless Rider in Stephenville, TX
Hi! I'm a college student, a member of the Tarleton Equestrian Team, and I want to be able to ride more often. I would consider myself an advanced beginner rider, I know enough to be able to ride well, but when it comes to stuff like flying lead changes, training, etc... so I probably wouldn't do well on an absolute greenie, though I am capable of riding one.
I have been told many times by multiple trainers that I have very soft hands, so no worries about me harming your horse.
I would prefer english, but I'm wanting ride time more than anything, so I'd be willing to ride western if there's a place near enough.
Also willing to do some barn work in exchange for ride time/lessons.
I would prefer to not travel more than 45 minutes away from Stephenville, TX 76401.

Horseless rider in Marin Co, CA
I just moved here, and I'm looking for an opportunity to ride but can't afford a lease. I left my own horse back in IN on a lease, and really miss riding! I am planning on finding a barn to train with, but can't afford more than once weekly lessons, and would love the opportunity to ride more than just in my lessons.
I can ride greenies or young horses, but I won't ride problem or "crazy" horses. I have mostly ridden hunter/jumpers and used a dressage foundation for training my own horse. I would be happy just hacking out a horse for fun and exercise and not "train" while riding, if that is what is preferred. I will gladly send videos of my riding.

Riderless Horse- Woodbine MD
WB gelding needs someone to ride him 2ish weekdays per week. Local show miles. Very sweet horse that can take a joke. Perfect hunter/EQ mount. Showing possible for the right person. Has shown up to 2'6, easily schools 3'+ at home. Walks down the lines with a super comfy canter. Boarded at a very nice barn with lighted indoor, 3 outdoor rings, and miles of trails and fields. Would ask you to help with the farrier but nothing major. PM for more information! Intermediate to advanced riders only please.

Riderless horse - suburban Richmond, VA
My child/husband/guest horse is sadly underutilized and needs a rider.
11 year old, 14.3 hand, stocky, solid QH gelding, lovely, SAFE, well-broken, comfortable ride, suitable for most level riders. Adjusts beautifully to his rider's skill level, takes care of beginners, is forward and fun for better riders. Don't be put off by his height, he is big barreled and up to carrying weight.
I would love someone to ride him on the farm, leg him up while tuning him during the week and perhaps ride out with me on the weekends.
Please PM me for more details

Husband and wife looking for two trail horses to ride in Sacramento area (north of I-80 preferably, like Elverta up to Granite Bay area). Need to be able to ride to trails as they are trailerless.

Horseless Rider - NE TN
Need to be ~30 mins. from Johnson City - weekends or if in the evenings have access to lighted arena or indoor, since I work til 5-5:30ish. Both of mine are on pasture retirement right now. I work weekly with a noted h/j trainer/MFH but it's not enough w/o additional saddle time. I'm just looking for something sane to flat and work on 2 point with, couple of times a week.

Riderless Horse - DC/Maryland Suburbs
I work full time and I have an 8yo TB (unraced, but still on the greener side) in the Montgomery County area who could use an extra rider occasionally (1-2 weekdays + when I travel for work). He's primarily an eventer, but we board at a dressage barn - looking for someone to ride him outside in the field and get him out of the ring a bit, though we have an indoor available for dark/bad weather/etc. He's a good guy and a very flashy mover, though still green and not suitable for a beginner. Looking for a confident, experienced rider who likes the TB personality! PM me for more details

Horseless rider in Chapel Hill, NC
I'm a horseless dressage rider in Chapel Hill, NC. I've trained/shown through fourth level and have worked with some really good trainers/clinicians. I can flat hunter/jumpers, too.
I haven't ridden in a couple of years and now is the time to get back into things. I'm less interested in a lease, but I am open to taking lessons or doing clinics with your horse.
Please PM me if at all interested.

Working student wanted - Bucks County, PA
Thought I would see if anyone is interested in a particular situation. I am a new trainer looking for a "working student" I do evening chores (turn-out or turn-in) on thursday & friday evenings at the barn where I board. It takes about 2 hours, time depends on time of year. I have access to their school horses. So looking for someone to help with my chores in exchange for a lesson or just riding. You would just have to pay the barn's $10 ring fee. I do dressage and eventing. Good opportunity for someone looking to get more involved in horses and learn about care, not just taking a weekly lesson. Person should be an adult or mature teenager.
Could lead to a lot of different opportunities, including trips to BCHP, shows, leasing, etc.
Best to contact me through my facebook page but will try to check my pms here.
Thanks - please delete if this is inappropriate for thread.
