Take her for walks- without a saddle, without a bit-just a halter and a long lead rope. Even if she's at a place that feeds for you, maybe you could show up for one feed time a day. While she's eating, groom her. Do things that are fun for her- i.e.- hose her down and then let her roll, take her to some good grass, etc.
It's so fun getting a new horse, and getting to know them. It's the best part! How was your new mare trained previously?
Horse whisperers don't whisper to the horse....they listen to the horses' whispers.
