This is the "original" leasing program we created more than 40 years ago at the Funny Farm (our pony farm) in Silver Lake outside of Everett, WA and brought with us to Horse Country Farm in 1977. All inclusive horse leases still work for us and we hope one works for you. We only accept a limited amount of leasers each year so everyone has their own horse. Got Carrots?
