I am sorry to hear of all the problems that you have had as your introduction to horses. IMO you need to find an equine vet Specialist that will do a full lameness work up. There are so many causes of lameness in horses that it is fully impossible for us to make any sort of an assessment over the Internet. It could be her spine, her hip, stifle, hock, pastern, feet, torn soft tissue, torn ligament, etc! Yes it will cost more money (possibly a lot of it), but the only way to have a plan for recovery is to know what the real underlying issue is. And unfortunately no one on the Internet is likely to be able to make that diagnosis for you.
Is she lame at all gaits? Or only trot, canter, etc.? Does she show any sensitivity or heat anywhere on the leg or hoof?
