Help With Leasing :]

So, I'm finally settled into college and own my own car. I have a great job and now have enough money to find a nice lease. I'm looking for a horse who I can improve on and start taking a step forward in my riding career. I am an eventer through and through and am looking for a horse who is too.

So far I have found two options who I am very interested in. I have emailed both of the owners and they have both emailed me back once. I would love to know what you guys think of these horses.

The first one.
Sweet Older TB Horse for Lease
This owner emailed me back in depth and seems very nice. Apparently he is blind in his left eye, but gets along very well. She also sent me these two youtube videos.

The second one.
This horse I am very excited about, but the lease agreement and horse almost seem too good to be true. The owner didn't send me much information, so I emailed her back some more specific questions, as well as a request for more pictures/video. I will update you all when I get a response.

Thanks in advance guys! I am super excited about finally being able to pull this off for sure :] Things have been going back and forth for about a year now, but now that my life is in order I'm good to go.

As you are not buying the horse you can overlook many faults in a lease horse. In this situation I would go and try them both and see which one you like more. You can email hundreds of times but until you get there and see and ride the horse you're not going to really know if its right for you.

If you are looking into jumping would not get the blind horse, but honestly I wasn't a huge fan of either of them. Then again though, if a lease doesn't work out you can give them back.

I think the white one is absolutely GORGEOUS, but I am not a fan of his movement. I am not an expert by any means, but there is nothing about him that screams eventing to me, of course you'll never know until you try him out right? Good luck!

I'm scheduled to try out the first one this Saturday, and the other one Monday. I realize certain things aren't quite as important about a lease horse, however, I am planning on using this horse to start showing a bit in the spring. Come summer I plan on reassessing my financial situation and seeing if I am able to purchase a horse. Thanks for your input! I'll update after I try them out.

Keep in mind not only which horse you like better, but also which owner you like better. It's always best if you can get along well. ;)

Well, it's official, I'm leasing the second boy. His name is Aaspen, and man am I in love. He is PERFECT for what I'm looking for, as is the lease agreement, and the owner is incredibly nice! I'll have some pictures up here ASAP ;]
