Wow! I'm not sure I followed everything exactly, but it sounds like a traumatic experience.
TBH, I would probably seek some type of equine therapy or trained professionals (with both horses and humans) who deal with this type of thing. I know there are some outfits that use equine therapy to help deal with PTSD or mental illnesses. I would suggest taking it all very, very slow and not doing it on your own without a professional present.
The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon
