Imagine a zig-zag that is wide at one end and gradually gets narrower. You are at the wide end and she is at the narrow end. Mosey back and forth until you come to her.
This statement is very true! That horse is watching you every second even when she doesn't seem to be.
To add to the above great advice, as you stroll (slowly) towards her, hide the halter and/or lead behind your back. Turn your shoulders away from her as you casually and calmly get closer.
Carry peppermints but leave them in the wrapper and roll them around your hand so that she hears the crackling. Use the words "treaty time" everytime and often. Yes, they really can learn that word although all of this is going to take time.
