I am sorry to hear this, unfortantly I have been through this with a rescue horse as well. I was working full time at 15 years old and my parents split. I was helping pay for board but we just couldn't afford it for 2 horses after that.
With the rescue we adopted from, the written agreement stated were not allowed to sell the horse. We had put about $8,000 worth of professional training into him and had to give him away.
Maybe if you end up selling your horse you can have some sort of a "buy back clause" ? Basically if the new owner decides to sell the horse, can't keep it anymore, etc you have "first dibs" to buy him back?
