How do I start off a good relationship with a 12 year old mare that I just got? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

Groom her and hand grazing. Spending time together builds trust between one another.
Many many treats! Also rub his neck, they generally love it
I had the same problem i tried to at least groom every second day even if not riding just to spend time, make it enjoyable (treats or hay net). Once i even went on a picnic with my horse :) .
