I agree with @boots. Also, it seems that often a hotter nervous horse builds up when you try and keep them held up consistently. That doesn’t mean go and let her run away, but it means make her work a little harder; let her move. Trot little serpentines, practice roll backs on a fence, lope circles, and do lots of transitions. Get her a little tired, a little less reactive and more thoughtful.

Now, there are the occasional types of horses that work themselves up more and more with work, and get about impossible to deal with. They are not super common though. With those types ignoring their heat seems best and giving them a job to focus on.
