i leased my boy while he was up for sale. He was a Euro Import that was doing the meter twenties and within a few weeks he was set to be trailered off to his new home. which was totally unacceptable to me. the original owners listened to my plea for whatever i could do to keep him, and they allowed me to make payments. Most owners really want to see their horses go to a great home... Even if that means that the great home can only afford payments! (how many people do you know with 10 grand in their wallets!??)
It's always an option!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

this is the horse I've been leasing. Well, up until today. My instructor told me that she needs her for lessons, as she just sold a lesson horse, so I can't lease her again until she gets another lesson horse.
Arabian/thoroughbred Cross Mare
I think she is priced like she is because she doesn't really WANT to sell her. She said 'if someone comes along with the money I wont say no, but if she doesn't sell it's no big deal'

If you aren't too fussy about what sort of horse you get, maybe a visit to a racetrack could pay dividends? There is bound to be someone there who would know of something retired off the track. My horse is a four year old standardbred, a year and a half off the racetrack and is the most beautiful riding horse you can imagine. She was only broken to the saddle in December and has got the most beautiful canter on her now, despite her previously being a 'pacer'. It took a bit of patience and hard work to turn her into what I was after, but she was dirt cheap and I'm quite sure she will be able to learn how to jump in time to come.

there is a tb rescue close to me that takes horses from the track and rehab's them and rehomes them. They are EXTREMELY reasonable on prices (some free) but I don't have the time to work with an off the track horse to retrain it and also I don't have the $$$ for board and expenses right now
