Hi, I’m new to the forums, so I hope I’m not posting this in the wrong place. I’m currently leasing a horse for another 3 months. He’s also for sale, but I don’t think he’s the right horse for me to buy. So, I found another horse for sale who I think could be a great match. He actually used to be at my barn, but moved to another barn for the past year and a half, and I’ve heard wonderful things about him. I want to contact the owner and try him out a couple times, but I still have 3 months left on this lease and I don’t want to breach the contract. On the other hand, I don’t want to wait 3 months to find out that this other horse has been sold.
Does anyone have any advice? Has anyone purchased (or thought about purchasing) a horse while leasing another? I don’t want to be double paying, but I don’t know of another way around it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
