Need Help Badly! lame horse and lost.

I started uni this year and put my horse out on loan, with view to sell to a friend of a friend. Everything went well for a few months but when i next came to visit my horse despite what they had been saying they had lied and neglected her and she had very badly pulled her check ligament, shes now back home and slowly recovering however i am too far away to look after her so a friend is, i am now really at a loss for what to do because now im at uni i cant work to pay for her so all my savings are slowly disappearing and cant keep asking my friend to look after a sick horse?
Has anyone got any ideas on what i could do? I love my 100% and just want whats best for her.
Thank you.

I know this sounds funny, but have you thought about a second job?

Can you move your horse closer to you so that you can then care for it?

Also, sometimes there are some horse crazy teenagers who are happy to just groom and spend time around a horse. If yours is quiet, maybe this in an option for a couple times a week, and your friend can still supervise?

Look into a temporary foster home (outline this in a contract, please!) or speak with a local rescue and see if they have any tips on helping you out.

Sell some stuff to get some money. If you are good at making things or if you can pick up a few extra duties to help pay all the better.

Or find a nice couple/single with some land and see if you can work something out with them and pay in a different way (bartering or favours (written down!!!) or something.)

Best of luck.. sorry about your horse. Some people are terrible.
