Where does this young person live in NZ.
If in Auckland, or north of Auckland she is only three hours away from my place. So we have three horses that need riding at this time. Kate my wifes quarter horse, Bugs, my quarter horse cross TB, and Stella, 16 plus hands of station bred. That is clydesdale and what ever at the time and she is being transitioned to bitless.
Tomorrow is the big day for her as she is going into the bush for the day, bitless and only her second try and first big day out. I will be riding or is that hanging on. My style of riding. Hanging on is a good discription
So to the person missing her horse I'm on the west coast in Northland if you are close there are three horses to chose from. Bugs needs milage, Stella needs fitness and kate well she is for sale but needs to be kept in work.
I live in Wellington, NZ, but the North Island is so small maybe it's something I could consider.
Despite if it works or not, you're absolutely wonderful for offering :) I'll shoot you a PM. I am very fit, but of course always room for improvement.
AlexS, I would never dream of selling Sky. Even when I cannot ride him anymore.. he is my soul horse. And it's not about paying for all the bills.. I happily do that. I happily have him in training, and happy allow a friend to ride him whenever she wants. I just don't like being so far from him.
I don't mind living here. Everyone is wonderful, I love my job but it's temporary. After it ends, I'll be facing new problems. If Sky were here, even with these circumstances.. I'd approach it a lot differently and with a lot more smiles.

Hope you will see your love again SOON!
Thank you so much Island for posting! I'm glad we understand each other, and I'm glad you went out and found some new lovies to love on while you're away from your other ones.
Thanks everyone for posting.
