Hmm, that makes the situation tricky for you :/
Is there a way you can contact her (your friend or her mum) on a nearly daily bases? By email or something? Explain to her what you worked on, how you fixed it etc. Even a few videos might help if you both have the time. A large part of this mares progress will be a part of your friend and her mum's responsibility unfortunately.
Don't feel to bad about only being able to get there one or two days a week, you are doing the best you can and getting some good experience!
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
