I think she needs to get out and about.
Take  her for rides in the trailer, jack pots, anywhere the is new where you can tie her up or walk her around for a while.

We do three or four jackpots a year for that very reason. We have even take a calf we aren't going to show because they just need desensitized .By the time our county deal rolls around they are dead broke and don't mind screaming kids and city people.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

We play a radio in the barn.  It helps them get used to different noises and voices.  Taking them to shows is of course the real deal, but, if she is really nervous I would do the radio before even going to the first show.

try feeding her melatonin.  we feed everything about 10 3mg pills morning and night for 3 days prior to shows.  works wonders!!
