Talking My mare is nervous

I have a black 10 year old 15hh cob mare, and when you bring her in from the field, she's extremely fresh and green, but after an hour or so, she calms down. I cannot lunge her as I have no lungeing equiptment. I'm not so sure about feeds and supplements, she has two scoops of sugar beet (soaked) and two scoops of Pony cubes, and 10-20ml of NAF Calmer, not sure which one.

I will be very grateful for any suggestions,

You don't have to lunge.
Do some other things

Get her to pivot on her front and hind
Get her to back up.

If you have a long lead rope, doesn't have to be lunge line, you can lunge with that.
That's how I taught my mare to load. I lunged her with a lead rope.

You could ask to borrow a lunge line as well.
