I know you’re in a quandary avout commuting to this horse, so seeing from my perspective may help. I ride horses about 4 times a week. There are twelve different horses who I ride, each special and unique. I decided one year to buy a horse. Of course, I bought the one with most training. BIG MISTAKE. You grow your riding skills, by riding different horses. After I sold him,I leased a horse. This was so much better, because I could lease the horse, devote my time, but still be able to change horses if necessary. If the horse you are talking about is truly your soul mate, but still can grow and conform to your needs, buy him. If he is flexible, but can only go so far in your specific riding career, lease him. Take my word for it, your gut will
Guide you.
