I've met some scared horses before, but not one has topped this. The girl who was working with her before, worked with her for about a year on trust, but it appears to have had no effect.
I don't think she's scared, actually. Not normal behavior, even for a scared equine. I suspect she's got some sort of physical issue going on...might be migraines, a bad food allergy...something along those lines. Her behavior is her attempt to get somebody to listen.
Course, I've never met the mare so I could be completely wrong, but that's what my experience and instinct are telling me, and those are never wrong.
