Tips for an easy transition to a new boarding barn?

Hi,
I am planning on moving my horse to a new barn. She's moving with a pasture mate but I was wondering if anyone had any tips on helping her with the transition? She can be a little high strung so I was just trying to make it as easy as possible on her

If possible, take her to the new facility a few times before the move and let her see the barn, meet some horses, maybe do some work.

Also you can try giving her some probios or something similar to make sure her tummy stays in working order through the move.

Also, it would be better if you could have a plan to take her off the trailer and turn her out directly, rather than put her in a stall.

Lucky that she has a friend moving with her... Bali moves next week and I am worried he'll be lonely without his pasture buddies. :(
