The fact you were spraying her from outside the corral makes me think that perhaps you aren't as confident and need to learn how to (re)introduce some things such as bathing. You want to be close-ish to the horse, not spraying them from a distance.
Please get someone to help you learn how to do this properly so neither you nor your horse get hurt.
I was close to her, right beside her, not spraying her from a distance. I'm confident, just my mom wouldn't let me inside the corral. I have an over-protective mother, and that's not an excuse, believe me. I'll try to get someone to help.
