Can you afford vet and hospital bills then?
Now notice my first post- my suggestion to you was to find an experienced English rider who has worked with a coach / trainer who might enjoy the experience of starting a horse over fences, maybe a college age rider who has taken the lessons, got the experience, but cannot afford a horse atm.
Shouldn't cost you anything, and will give your horse the beneficial experience of a skilled jumper starting him.
