I have rented my field/land to the lady that came to look around today for one month, she has given me one months rent to ensure her place. Pony is 11.2hh 2yo.

Is this agreement ok? or should i just forget an agreement?

Rent of field/stables:-

Name of owner/keeper: .........................................

Home Address: .................................................

Contact number - Home: ........................
- Mobile: ............................
- Work: .............................
- Emergency: ............................

Name of horse: ...........................

DOB/sex/height: ..........................

Breed/type/colour: ..........................

Farriers name and tel. no: ..............................

Vets name and tel. no: ......................................

Date of last flu/tet: ..............................

Name of insurance company: .........................

Rent amount per month: ..........................

Date of arrival: .......................

I agree the above details are true to the best of my knowledge.

Do I need to ask all this info? It's only for rent, not livery

This is her information sheet not a livery agreement. I would go to the BHS website for a proforma.

She is still renting your property (assuming it exists) and so you need to cover yourself from all angles. Your agreement should also provide a level of cover for you tenant ie what you are responsible for and what she is responsible for (fencing, insurance etc)

I rented a small yard previously and we had a fully binding legal contract with the owner that spanned a good 5 pages and left no room for ambiguosity or misinterrpretation on either side of the agreement.

I can see the posts in a months time already: How do I get sponger off my land? Stallion has trashed my land! and so on.....

You need to add - method of payment, how much notice she must give you, what action will be taken by you if rent not paid on time. Suggest you now charge rent weekly and have it paid directly into your bank account then you have proof that it's been paid or that you get a rent book that is filled out and signed when rent is paid in cash/cheque.

Rules re collection of dropping, removal of noxious weeds, who fertilises the paddock, whose responsible for maintaining the fence. If broken by pony then pony owner pays, general maintenance by you.
