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!

Oh yay. I'm glad you are seeing this mare through. I also saw the other thread. No disrespect to your friend but the horse does not take advantage of her at all, it's the friend who hasn't got enough knowledge to know what to do with this horse, hence the horse 'changed'.

I totally agree with you about not riding her yet - for a long while at least. Once the horse is perfect and respectful on the ground, that's when you can hop on them. If not, you'll get potential issues in the saddle that sometimes can be extremely hard to undo once done. Good luck. Keep us updated with her. She is gorgeous!

Yes I can always contact her by phone, I always tell her what I have done with Fen, keep her updated. Her daughter has gone to live at college now so she has no role in Fens life anymore, and her mum doesn't have time to spend with her because of work. So the only time Fen is being worked is when I am with her, which is twice a week. Just isn't enough, but hey ho nothing I can do about that part.

Yeah I know my friend doesn't have enough for this mare. I am trying my best. Some days she is an angel and does what I ask, but other days she will be pushy, try and kick, try and bite and just be a general arse! And yes, I do think she has a pretty face
