leasing and buying

I'm currently leasing a horse who I've fallen in love with. The owner has ran into a few health problems recently and is looking to sell her. Unfortunately, I cannot afford his asking price at this time. Can anyone offer suggestions on what to do? I was considering offering him a down payment to ask him to hold her until I can afford to pay the rest. I don't want to lose this horse!! Ideas??

What about talking to the owner about a "lease to own" type deal?

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I personally don't think you should try and enter debt relationships with private people. If you really want the horse and will have the money soon, why not approach a financial institution and get a short term loan. You can put a deposit on the horse until the financing comes through.

Lots of people are happy to take payments, or do a lease to own type thing. Talk to the owner!

Offer payments/lease-to-own. Get it in writing.
