Hi there, i would be happy to help with your query. Generally my experience is based on leases within residential and commercial properties but this is assuming the lease documents for leasing a horse are the same. To answer your question, yes you can extend the lease, you can do so by what is called a variation of lease and increase the term of the lease end date in there. That would then work alongside the original lease document. Alternatively, at the end of the lease agreement or on the end date you can create and enter into a new lease with a new expiry date and term. You can also negotiate provisions in that lease that were not in the original lease. The way you choose to go about it is up to you as both a variation or a new lease would be considered valid documents. That particular lease document would end unless you did a variation to lease, even though the clause says except as agreed to between the parties. Generally, you would want something in writing especially if you are increasing a term as if one party changes there mind later on there would be no documentation to rely on even though the clause allows for agreement between parties.
