Just remember that trust comes out of respect. You cannot love and pet a one into trusting you. It is just how a 'herd' animal responds to a person.
Treat her like any other horse. A horse's background cannot be changed. It is not necessary to even know a horse's background. They live 'in the moment'. If a handler does the right thing and has the right response for anything a horse does and knows how to make that horse to the right thing for the stage of training it is at, the past means nothing.
