I am currently trying to restart a paint mare who is very nervous under saddle because of how she was taught. Me being 5ft tall I feel she will just blow right past me. Tips?

You got to be sure, is she being nervous or naughty? If naughty you've got to toughen up, if nervous you've just got to remember that you've can't be nervous, because then she'll think there's something to be scared of which increases your problems.
