Don't work her up to the point she'll rear or bolt, but take her far enough and then work the snot out of her. And she tires take her further and continue to get the horse to pay attention to the rider. This may take some time but eventually everything will work out.
You sound liek you and the horse could use some training to help with the confidence issues.
Thanks I will try that and yes I have bad confidence issues. I never use to be afraid to ride and I never had a accident, but for some reason I am terrified to ride. I even told my husband that maybe we should sell them since they never get ridden.
