    Hi Kirsty, I know how much you are into your horse and it would be tragic if you had to put him down. Don't do that without a fight though. There may be ways you can save the situation. I don't know how things work over there but here is a thought. Try getting in touch with all the local schools in your area, particularly those that deal with troubled or 'at risk' kids. Also any local charities who work with kids. If you were to offer a service whereby these kids could come and meet your horse and maybe have a ride on him you may be able to make enough money to save him. My advice would be to set up as a non profit organisation or charityaimed at working with such kids. It may be that there will be funding available for such an enterprise. I work in a similar field and know that schools and charities who work with young people are always looking for activities to do with them. It may take a bit of setting up but it could be a way to solve your problem. Here in the UK I know that such things are possible and that even in these times of recession money is available for working with young people. Who knows, one day you could even ste up your own stables and turn it into a full time job.
    The place I work at has just become a non profit organisation and the funding this has enabled us to access means we now have more money coming into the business than ever.
    Just an idea but I can tell how desperate this situation must be for you. As I say don't give up without a fight. Best wishes, Simon. PM me if you want some advice on how this could maybe work.
