Start with ground work... build up her trust - and respect - and then start introducing her to "scary things" using pressure and release.

The important thing is to start with the basics and make sure you have a solid foundation.

I agree...desentitizing her will do a world of wonder for her..but make sure you build trust with her on the ground first...good luck!

The most beneficial help will happen if we know how you define skiddish. Spooking at noise? Spinning at a dark corner? Leaping forward when you apply your leg?

Well she gets scared at quick movements for example today someone grabed tha saddle off the fence and that sent her into a complete frenzy. They weren't even trying to mess with her just was going to put it up. She is still kinda young and we are doing lots and lots of ground work, she is around 5 or 6 she is very willing to learn over all a good horse
