Im pregnant and dealing with a mare very much in season

Im wondering if you can help me please?

I part loan a horse and she is very much in season. She is 16 and she seems very much the alpha female. She seems very tense and is a little bolshy at the moment, she keeps calling out too and is very distracted........
This is my first spring with her so im wondering how should I be acting around her? You see im pregnant too (7months) and I don't want to let her boss me about as this could mean she could really hurt me and more importantly my baby.

But all the sites I've looked at have said that you should be sensitive to a mare in season and let her have her moments also if you stand up to a mare in season they can get extremely agressive?
Im getting mixed views? I absolutly love her owner (we are really good friends) but she says the horse is fine......

Normally the horse has respect for me and we get on just fine, but today as I was at the door she just barged past me and shoved me out of the way! (I was leaning on the chain) and started calling to the other horses. I backed her up in the stable in a stern voice and then carried on with what I was doing. Im not sure if this is right?

If anyone can give me any advice I would really appreciate it
Thanks xxxxxx
