That's a tough one re: Sour. On one hand, it's nice to think that there will be a chance to see how she fits into the program before she's 100% committed to it. On the other hand, as NorthernMama has said, there are a thousand things that can go wrong with horses and who would be liable. I mean, as a kind of worse case scenario, if the horse went lame and they gave her back, you would then be stuck trying to fix a lame, unsellable horse.
As an afterthought, plenty of people do loans with view to buy, but you're best writing out a detailed contract that makes liability clear for every situation you can imagine.
