More riding time with you would help, or perhaps a buddy to play with in the turnout, so she moves more on her own? Or if you have a small dirt paddock perhaps she could spend part of the day or the night there. Another possibility is finding a 2nd person who is a good rider, and rides much the way you do, but cannot afford a horse of her own, but who would be overjoyed to exercise your horse 2 or 3 times a week, perhaps even to do some kind of partial lease, so that she contributes to the normal expenses of keeping a horse. Just make sure you find someone who rides much the same as you, or perhaps better, and could put not just some miles on your mare, but some training.
