Default Barking at the horses

Quinn's progressing fantasticly with everything I've asked of her but there is one issue I wanted to ask about before it became a problem.

She was nervous of the horses the first time she saw them, understandbly, they're huge and she was tiny. We let them have free roam of the paddocks during the day and the house is right up again st the back fence where they have access to, most of the day they are down the back but whenever they pass the yard Quinn starts barking at them because she's nervous. Except sometimes she'll run up onto the verendah and bark from there. They don't always have to be near the fence. Malibu started a gallop halfway don the paddocks the other day and that set Quinn off, othertimes she'll just notice they've moved up towards the fence and start at that.

I take her out for walks everyday with Buster, he's great with the horses and the horses are generally good with the dogs (except Malibu will chase them for fun so I've been watching her carefully because I don't want Quinn getting caught under her)

I've taken her out on leash a couple of times just to practice some tricks in their general vicinity with lots of treat, should I continue with this?
Any other ideas?
