LEASE AUTHORIZATION Horses can be leased for one of two purposes. People will often lease a show horse to become involved in equine competitions or lease a horse for breeding purposes. This is a cost effective method of being involved in the Miniature industry without investing in a long term or costly partnership. Leasing horses also allows owners to promote their horse in a wider spectrum of venues. For example a youth member may lease and show a horse that is typically shown in the open division. For breeding leases, you may be able to lease a high quality stallion or mare without the initial purchase price. Leases also provide individuals with the right to perform AMHA business while showing, breeding and promoting a horse that is not theirs. When you submit a Lease Authorization you must declare whether it is for Showing or Breeding purposes. Show leases are good for 12 month and breeding leases are good fro 18 months unless otherwise noted. There is a $20 filing fee for leases. PLEASE NOTE: If you lease a horse to someone, you are granting them the right to perform all aspects of business within the AMHA other than selling it and transferring ownership.
