Bringing My Horse home.. Any tips???

Alright, so my Nanny has officialy turned 71 to 75 and she has to move to the city. We live in the city so my nanny will move into our house and my Dad, Mom, Siter and I will move out to the country, into her house. So we know that. That's happening next summer maybe next fall. Because of this, we officially know, I will be bringing my mare, Gabby Chanda (Gabby) home. I haven't seen her inabout 5 weeks, so Next time I see her I'll tell her, as I tell her everything because she's my diary. So it is set. But I'm wondering if you have any tips for having a horse home. I am 13 years old, and a country girl. I KNOW I'm ready for this. I'm super excited, yet at the same time, scared out of my pants. I don't want to like.. hurt her or panic her, 'cause she's levaing her friends. Do you have any tips on bringing her home( like trailering and introducing her to her new home etc...), Stable managmet (Hay, water, stalls etc...) and what to do if sher panics or is not stteling propely ( Running around snorting, anxious, neroud etc...) If you do that'd be great Sorry for any spelling mistakes and yes My horse is my diary, 'cause we have a great bond. Thanks !!!!!

Safety first. Are there already pastures? A shelter or at least a good natural wind break? All of these if pre existing should be checked for safety issues. If neither exist or need repair, you can start now. Planning storage, feed, tack, mess and grooming supplies can start now too. On the same note ridding as many rotten no good mice as possible! A vet and farrier that can be of service at your farm. Find a hay supplier, and start buying now, lol. The list is endless and I'm sure the gaps will be filled in. A side note, me personally would try and find a buddy for your horse. Goat cow camel, something. Single horses always seem down. My fingers hurt now, ask ?'s if ya got em. Better to know then be shy.
