Desperately seeking in NYC metro area

I'm looking for a horse to ride. I'm a starving college student, so buying or even leasing is out of the budget right now. I ride with my school's equestrian team, but I only get so many rides, and we break for winter and summer.

I'm an adult rider, and a solid intermediate. I have ridden up to 1st level dressage in the past, and currently ride hunters for the school team. I used to be a professional groom, so I know horses and I care for them properly. I'm definitely rusty, but I have a balanced seat and quiet hands. An upper level horse would be wasted on me (unless he needs a break, but with light exercise) but a quiet old trail pony wouldn't really work for me either. I'm willing to do a little light work around the barn in exchange (roll wraps, clean a little tack, that kind of thing), but honestly I don't have time to really work off a lease.

If you know of anyone who really needs some help exercising their horse/s, please keep me in mind. Thanks all!

I put an ad up on craigslist and my trainer flagged it for removal. She's afraid someone will give me a nightmare horse that will sour me on riding for life.
