I agree with 'Spirithorse' and 'luvs2ride1979'.
Also when you start riding do your best to keep her calm.
Lots of circles. I find a TB I ride goes very calm when on the bit, maybe try that?
When it comes time to trot, walk a few strides then trot a few strides and then come back to walk. Count a few walk strides and start trotting again.
Constant trotting makes them go faster. :)
I ride a 19 yr old TB and she stresses all the time.
Doing all this stuff helps to calm her. :)
