Some horses get worked up easier than others. It could be like Saddlebag suggested or a metabolism issue. I know some people that sweat easier than others. My dad is one and I used to be one.
Another thing that came to mind is that she might be out of shape compared to the others. I know with our horses, the geldings play and mess around a lot more than our mares. It is normal for horses to be out of shape in the spring because they don't have to move around and graze. They sit with their head in a hay bale during winter.
Some horses that I've worked with did get really sweaty the first few times. They don't understand at first what I'm trying to communicate. They really get worked up and get a mental sweat going on. Once I can get them to calm back down and figure it out, the sweating goes away.
I would just keep an eye on her. Make sure to use clear cues, be consistent, and reward the smallest try she gives.
