Why not put her on part loan? Someone would love to ride your horse i'm sure! But if that isn't an option, you could always lunge her... this can also be over poles and works the horse well, especially if you use side reins/pessoa /chambon. If you have a school, during the say maybe turn her out in there for a few hours, so she has less grass intake. Also, cut down her feed as she isn't being ridden. :)

Have you tried natural horsemanship with your mare.  Playing Parelli games or other natural horsemanship lessons will keep her away from eating grass whilst you train her and you don't have to risk hurting your back .   In addition you could advertise in your local tack shop for someone to ride her as some horseriders may own a youngster or older horse which cannot be ridden and may enjoy being in the saddle.  Hope this helps

loose reigning in a small area. like joinup and  lunging will be good. some walking out would be good for both of you for your back. but wear some kind of back support.!
