Red face Irish Sport Horse - To lease or not to lease?

I am a dedicated Dressage rider/trainer, and have been looking for a project horse for some time. I recently came across a four-year-old 16.1hh Irish Sport Horse that is up for a 6-9 month free lease off farm. I'm guessing the woman who owns him just wants him to have more of a job for the winter and I have the facility work with him in. He's been ridden for about a year now, trails, small fences, lots of groundwork- So a good base, but still green. I don't know too much about the breed, but am hoping to finish him up on Dressage until the summer. It sounds like a good deal, here are some pictures:

These pictures are from his owner, I have not gone to meet him yet. The woman is being a bit vague as far as giving me contact information, yet asks me to call her without giving me a number. I hope it will all work out...

Anyway, do you guys think he would be a good dressage prospect? Anyone have an ISH? Any tips?
Thanks in advance~ :)

My question right off the bat is - what benefit would this deal have for you? Even as a free lease, it sounds like the woman would be receiving free training for 6-9 months.

I'm seeing it as a horse that I can gain training experience on, and compete at small shows in the area. Our farms horses are all up their in age and a younger horse to play around with would be amazing.

But I don't know if I'll even get to see the horse as this woman has such bad communication skills and wont even give me a name.

The photo link does not work for me.

I am part leasing an Irish Sport Horse. He is more draft-like in appearance, but he can produce some nice , forward movement. If all ISH are like him, then they are a wonderful breed. (though , they really aren't a breed, so much as a combination of breeds.

He is sired by a stallion named "King of Hearts". Hears a small picture of the sire;

Now that's a horse! Thanks for the input, I just met the gelding and his owner is completely caddy about leasing him. He's going for 12k to sell in the summer, and he looks like a mule- and about acts like one. Turns out she pulled him out of a backyard, I doubt he's even a ISH. I at least learned some things about the breed- or whatever you'd like to call! ;) Thanks again!
