Have you considered volunteering at a therapeutic riding facility or at a rescue?

Try looking at yardandgroom

They may take you in as a "student" but most want experience.

Do you drive? You could go out on a weekend and find somewhere to go help for a few months.

Also, you may not be able to ride, but you can drive! Ground driving is also excellent exercise! You need to keep a nice brisk pace, plus holding up those arms... A fun way to help you lose weight!
