It sounds to me like she was struggling with the comittment of owning this horse (which might explain why she didn't take care of her equipmnt etc) and so wanted help, but it also sounds like she wasn't ready to let her horse go yet!
If it was me loaning out my horse, i'd probably feel a little jealous of the loaner because they'd have time to spent with it but I wouldn't. I'd still care about my horse and want to spent time with it, but not have the time!
So perhaps she was trying to squeeze in as many visits as possible to make herself feel included still.
I must admit, this happened with a loan pony of ours a very long time ago, when we were younger. The owner was always telling us what to do and how we were doing this wrong and I agree it is infuriating! If you don't think i'm good enough then why loan me your pony? Anyhow, we don't loan the pony anymore lol!
It's such a shame that you had to end it, but maybe it was for the best - you're sure to find another loan out there somewhere soon - good luck!
