Excited!! Possible full lease :D

Hi guys First thread *A long thread at that, sorry xD* ^.^ Anyway, my instructor told me at my lesson tonight that she has the perfect temporary lease horse for me. We are moving really far away this summer and I want to get my own horse when we move, she said it will be a great thing for me. Let me go ahead and start with what I can do. I can safely jump 1-1.5 ft. Crossrails, can canter well off the longe line, I have both posting and sitting trot down flat and know my diagonals perfectly. I am not one to get scared, I have had a couple mistakes, like I lost my stirrups once while cantering and just stayed calm and stopped the horse. Now, I have been begging for a horse the whole 2 years I have been riding. And I am moving in about 6 months really far away so it isn't a good idea to get a horse now. But my instructor was talking me today about this horse she thinks will be perfect with me. The horse is a palomino paint *Fangirls over how this is my dream horse* and is a very smooth trotter and canterer. It is an intermediate horse *My level, I am almost advanced*. She does have problems and can not jump though. But I don't really mind as long as I can ride. She is 13 years old and is very sweet. It is a full lease, and I would be paying board as well as expenses. I think we can get the owners to take pasture board which is about $240 a month. With farrier and vet it would be about $325 a month. I honestly think for the next 6 months, this horse would be perfect. Of course I would ask to take it on trial before leasing, just to test it out. My problem is convincing my dad. My mom is all for it but, my dad is a penny pincher. I also wanted to lease last year but I had just started diagonals and wasn't ready. I think he has really seen me improve. I haven't gotten a B in 3 years in school, so I am not worried about my grades slipping. I have plenty of time after school, could come definitely 3 days a week, maybe 4-5 on some weeks. Any suggestions on what to tell my dad to get him to make the deal? I have some good arguments but I want to be ready for anything he throws at me. Thanks <3

Not yet, I just found out tonight. It's just a prospect but it looks really hopeful. My instructor actually texted the owners at my lesson to ask about board sooo...
