Are you interested in competition, or your current horses? It will take a lot of training and growing a bond with your 2 year old to get him to the level that you need to be to have the potential you need, and he might be praised in the long-term effects, but if you have a horse that is sooner capable of what you are looking for, you should go for it.
I think that you should go for the lease if you are wanting to show now. During this time you can train with her while you work on your two-year-old and maybe by the time you terminate your lease you can start continuing with the two-year-old, and have more experience to push that young horse to the best of his/her ability.
Yes. I think the lease is good, and train my two year old.
Also, my mom said yes about leasing and even buying!!! It' my dad now, because he'd be the one helping me with the costs.
