I agree with starting her in dressage. Also I'd work her over jumps a bit too. She might even look nice in western.
-Lots of groundwork.
-Make sure she can be handled calmly. She should be good with feet, ears, head, trailering, vet, farrier, dentist, saddles, bridles, worming, clipping, dogs, cats and anything else you can possibly think of. Expose her to cars and traffic too.
-Remember to work her outside the ring as well as in. A good trail horse is worth a lot to some people.
-Start her in dressage and low level jumping.
-Show her. Show her. Show her. It will be good for her, raise her value and help her go to a good home.
