Wow, so sorry to step on your delicate toes.
You never mentioned not tying her, that you need to tie her where a matt may not be portable, and I never once thought you were a kid.
But consider this... YOU A TYING TWO LEGS OF A PRAY ANIMAL TOGETHER! I've had just as much experience as you have had with hundreds of different horses. I'm ok with doing a lot of stuff other people wouldn't be comfortable. When I comes to hobbling a horse can be extremely dangerous and detrimental physically and mentally for a horse.
There's no shame is consulting a professional, even if its for a time or two, just to evaluate your horse and show you the proper steps. If you have to come to an online forum asking for advice on how to hobble a horse I'd say you probably should be attempting it yourself, I don't care if your 13, 33 or 83. And if your husband is a "horse trainer" why doesn't he have the answers for you?
