It will take a lot of time, but soothing words, food and brushing her will help. Try getting her around another horse, that can help them. That's why hospitals allow people to have visitors, because it brightens their spirits. A friendly horse can do the same for her.
Sugar cubes tend to work too.
Time and steadiness; it may only be possible to touch her as she passes. Let her decide what she wants to do. The best thing to do is to be around her and be you. Don’t be afraid don’t be overly cautious what she needs now is normal. She has had enough of abnormal and dramatic. If you can get her into a halter just take her to some tall grass and let her eat. If you have a round pen let her walk around in it with you in there with her. Take a chair, read a book just let her be near you and act like it is no big deal. With time she will calm down then you can train her for more tolerance toward other distractions. I’m glad you are there for her.
I have a ccouple ideas to bond you and your horse.
- take her and a couple other horses out into a round pen, and leave them their to eat (grass, not her actual feed). Go in and just walk with them, don't touch them. After you've ben walkin for about ten minutes, go up to her and make her step over just once. try doing this to a couple other horse, then continue walking around. then push them over again, then walk, then leave. This is actually what a leader of a herd does.
-take her into a round pen again, and get her walking around the edges, trotting if you can.. then stop. face her, but back up a little, she'll start to come to you, to inspect you. if she doesn't get her walking again, and then try again, slowly back up from her. This is a great bonding exercise.
Hope I helped. Good luck!!!!
A simple idea is when she starts to come to you bend down to let her see you mean her nothing but friendliness. Reward her when she touches your hand. This worked with an 8 year old gelding who no one has been near in 3 years when he returned from an abusive person. I swear by the peppermint treats over sugar cubes. Horses love both it is a personal preference which you choose. Put her in a small pen or corral and stand in the middle. let her run around till she sees you just standing there. Not approaching, not hitting, not yelling, not asking anything at her.

My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a kid toucher, bottom line. I loved Jackson's music when I was a kid, but when he started bleaching his skin and wearing shin guards, I realized something wasn't quite right...

Are my dreams normal, or was I sexually abused as a child?Since I was young, I have had dreams about witches cutting off my genitals and covering the wounds with duct tape. Is this normal, or was I sexually abused?
