That is what she means Celeste, but it is not like disability here in the US. She is claiming a state provided subsidy, my memory is shaky as it was over a decade ago, but I believe it's called Family Credit or Family Support. She can work up to 20 hours a week and still get full benefits. It's designed to help get low income people back on their feet.

Return the items you don't want to your mother.
As far as CSA, unless your ex has a high documented income, you won't see a penny because the child support he pays goes back to repay the benefits that you are receiving. It's done that way so your income is secure if he decides not to pay. The only way you would see any of that money, is if he is assigned a payment that is more than your benefits - not likely! And this is why it's immoral for you to have a horse, because the British tax payers are paying for it for you rather than you trying to stand on your own two feet.
