working horse too much?

How much is too much to work with the horse a week?

I work with my horse twice a day (morning and evening).

She was doing really good about letting me put the halter on, but now she just walks away from me if I have the halter in my hand.

She will approach me to see what I'm doing, but once I get the halter ready to put on she starts to walk away.

The most recent thing I have been doing with her is putting a saddle on her back and leaving her tied for a while (no more than 45 min).

I wonder if she just assumes she will be saddled and tied up when she sees the halter and wants nothing to do with it.

Mine all like to work and will meet you at the gate when they see you coming. Does not matter how much I work them. However I change up what I do when I ride. I also make sure that after the ride they get Bioscaned to make sure the do not get sore and they love that.
What does Bioscanned mean?
