And add ground poles - they can’t see boogie man if they have to look where they are putting their feet. Introduce them from the ground first, at a walk.

What I also do is turn my mare out in the arena before a ride and ask her to run around - a lunging whip and a few loud smooches usually get them going. Obviously don’t tack her up before hand.

Also, get the vet out - see if there is any pain anywhere (ha! Easier said than done). Have her teeth, eyes and reproductive organs checked. And get a saddle fitter out. Pain can cause a horse to become spooky.
