I love your post so much, I wondered if you would be OK with her using is as an anonymous quote for her speech. It is truly inspirational!!! All my best.
I would be honored to be a part of her speech. If she has any questions or needs more quotes, she is free to email me at [email protected]

I would like her to know how much that means to me, that someone out there is working to help people in my situation

Good for you! You can have lots of fun with poles and cones, setting them up in a weave pattern, and making a bit of an obstacle course. You can also create lots of obstacles with a bit of wood and some imagination. Given that you describe your mare as green broke, this would be a really good way to desensitize her!

This course would be easy to build, and looks like a lot of fun! Start by leading her from the ground before you ride her over all of these, and maybe just do one per training session, before you put them all together. This is a great way to build communication between horse and rider.
