Which Horse to lease? Help!

I am currently leasing two horses but I have to choose only one to lease next school year. I love both of them but can't choose. I have been riding for 6 years so I am an expeirienced rider. I hope to go to some dressage shows with what ever horse I choose to lease.

Bobby- 23 year old tb. He has had quite alot of dressage training and is very successful. He is somewhat high strung and spooks easily. He is very accident prone so he is unrideable sometimes but not alot. He has a big canter which is hard to collect.His owner is barely there and isnt really a part of his caretaking.

Bodi- 17 year old tb. Even though he is the younger one of the two, he is really stiff and takes a long time to warm up. He is super lazy and takes alot of work to keep going. He is a safe relieable horse that barely spooks but he is not much of a challenge. His owner is very involed with him and very specific using her methods. He is definitely spoiled.

I would take lessons and just ride for fun with both of them.

Which one should I choose?

When ever I am trying to make a tough decision..I make 2 lists for each choice the positives and the negatives. Which one has more positives...which points are really important to you
Try to keep emotion out of it

Then above all go with your gut because you are really the only one who knows what will make you happy :)
