She is in with 2 other horses right now. They are a lot older then her and won't run around with her or anything, but that is the best I can do. They are also not in pasture, I would put her in a pasture if I could, but I board her at a cattle farm, so they only have 1 corral available, which in where she is right now, but will get turned out into pasture when the cows are gone to their summer pastures.

Well that's not a bad thing that she is with older horses actually. Older horses will correct her when her manners are bad. She can learn good behaviors from mature horses

They are not my horses so I didn't train them, but I think they are actually teaching her bad habits. One horse rears all the time, when you are working with him or just to be a butt. He likes to rear. Now, sometimes my filly will rear. Its not consistant just sometimes.

Oh well that can happen too. The two adult horses I have are well mannered and keep the colts in line. Though if those aren't your horses then they can also learn bad habits from them. But you need to nip that rearing in the bud while she is young.

Why don't you just pasture her with the cows?

Yep ^

I can't stress enough just HOW important it is for young horses to have as much turnout time as possible.
Turnout develops them mentally and physically - as well as assisting in improving their sense of balance and self sufficiency.

How big is the "corral" that these three horses are in?

The corral is not that big. They can run around but they don't even have shelter. I did have her in a pen by herself, with shelter and stuff, but they made me move her. Believe me, if I was allowed to put her in with the cows, I would, I have asked, they said no... Also, if she rears, she gets in so much trouble, and she doesn't do it again for a while. She has only reared 2 times. In the same day at the same time... I gave her a smack and made her lunge around me.

Goodness sounds like you need a better place to board your horse.
