I have not had her eyes checked, why is that important? (I'm curious haha.)
You have gotten a lot of great advice. I will just add, and some may disagree, but with these spooky, everything is a horse eating monster types I don't like to take them up to look at stuff unless is something really unusual that we normally don't see. Stopping and looking means their feet stop moving, feet stopping means brain has time to start reacting. The best thing to do is keep the feet moving and do lots of transitions, lateral movements, circles, hop over logs, trot around trees keep her guessing what your going to ask for next so she does not have time to look for things that may eat her. And even when you find something unusual don't just head at it and stand there do serpentines to it, do rollbacks near it you will know if she is really committed to being scared if she stays excited or relaxes as soon as you ask her to work, if that makes sense.
