Most the time when horses are upset with other coming near is not agression but fear. Since you are in control of your horses feet she cannot decide for her self. You can help her alot by always being aware of horses coming around her and allowing her to move her hips left or right away from the other horses. Always tip her nose to the horse she is worried about. When you are at home with someone that is willing to help you practice riding close by another horse and keep her attention on you and ask her to leg yield if she pins her ear and bend and tip her nose to the horse. I have a little girl at our barn whose horse was nasty toward everyone. We have helped her get control of this by being aware and helping her horse be more comofortable. Now she can show and ride in clinics without a problem. Your horse just needs to know that you are watching out for her.
