You need to get this horse out of your life and you need to find a positive way to do that. Thoroughbreds are not for everyone. Remember what these horses are bred to do.. why they were created at all.. was to run fast and turn left (right if not in the US).
This is a 5 year old horse that sounds relatively untrained AND she has that "hot" Thoroughbred temperament. Even if she cools down some off grauin she may lose condition too, which you don't want AND you are AFRAID of her. That is no good for you OR for the horse.
I personally love Thoroughbreds...hotness and all. They are sensitive, responsive, athletic and have a lot of drive but they are not for everyone. Another component of the breed is genetics. Some lines are hotter and more difficult to handle than others.
Because this horse scares you for the skil level you have, do you and the horse a favor and work with the rescue to find a better match for her.
