Another update, the stalls haven't been cleaned in months and water isn't being provided as regularly. As much as I adore this horse and the bond we have, as cheesy as that sounds, is something I never thought possible. He follows me and jumps around when he sees me. It's time for me to leave, the bass outweigh the goods

Then leave. There are other leases. You will miss him and have some good cries, but it isn't worth staying in a bad place with a person you don't like or trust. Then go find a trainer you can trust to continue your riding journey with. Call animal control if stalls haven't been done in months and water is an issue.

^^^^ That.

And some advice. When you move on to other venues, and explore other options, don't say anything negative about your previous barn. Keep it positive and on you (i.e. "You want to try X to improve Y and think So-and-so can help you do that", etc.) Just say you learned what you needed to at the old place, gained some experience, and you're moving on in your riding endeavors.

I'm talking to my parents about buying him. That would be the perfect solution, I just need to convince the owner to sell him
