Make sure you figure out who is responsible for paying for maintenance (farrier/shots), and who is responsible for disasters (colic surgery etc). Obviously you will take care of the horse, but horses have a knack for seriously injuring themselves or getting sick. Make sure both you and the owner understand the financial responsibilities if something goes awry.

Generally the horse needs to be insured and generally the leasee pays for the policy.

Absoluteluty I would have insurance. I never lease a horse without, always reccomend to a new buyer, and if someone is doing payments they have the option of saying yes or no to insurance, but they assume all responsibility should anything happen and it was declined.
I cant stress enough how important insurance is, after taking a $10,000 loss.
That, and as KL said, who is responsible for maintainence (usually leasee), vet bills, feed etc.
