Pestering your parents about how responsible you are and blah blah blah isn't a great idea XD My mom put up with a heck of a lot...not that I really pestered her about getting a horse, but she felt bad because we couldn't afford to get one for, oh, only a decade or so.
If you can find a good lease situation, do it.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure if you're at an age where you could do what I finally did (keep in mind I'm 22 now and I got Reno last December). I worked my butt off to be able to adopt my Reno. It was hard, and still is, but it's all worth it. My BO is quite fond of me and Reno, so due to our financial issues as of late she's allowing him to be trained for free so I only have to pay $450 for board. I'm so glad I racked up about $500 or so in credit by working at the farm since late September/early October. I don't mind people being kind like that, but I'm not usually the type who takes handouts...I don't really consider this that kind of thing. I've sacrificed a LOT (not eating, not showering, just to keep bills low so I can make board) and worked hard to keep him.
