I had the pleasure of watching and learning at a clinic for Canada's Pan Am potentials. The riders and horses and wonderful. The clinician is Robert Dover, who is fantastic! Here are a few tips i learned in the 3 days.
1. " Take your time!!" No matter what you are doing and trying to accomplish, take your time in getting it. Give yourself and your horse time to figure it out. You will both be happier and more effective.

However I do really like to come on to a site like this and find dissucsions on our Omega Alpha products because often others can use the advice.
Sinew-x is our joint, muscle and ligament formula and it is made up quite differently than most joint supplements and that is why it will work much quicker. We have actual herbal anti-inflammatory ingredients that activat quickly while the d-form Glucosamine offers the building blocks for the joints to make joint fluid.
That is the short version.
again sorry for the tardy reply.
I feel your on the right track, but if not she'll tell you as you'll stop being effective.
A rollback is like a one rein stop on the fence putting her nose into the fence and as she comes through the turn, driving her forward heading the other way on the other lead.Go a few to seversl strides and rollback the other way. The benefits of doing rollbacks on a colt such as yours I see as at least threefold. First you get her to think because she has to find direction to get release of pressure. Secondly, your controlling her feet by stopping, changinging direction, and impulsing to the new lead. Thirdly, you keep from getting in a monotonous routine of going around in slow dull circles.
It sounds like your mare's feet have become stuck, meaning that she's resenting having to work. I just had a horse here that had the same problem, she would be fine if she only had to walk, but when you asked her to trot or lope, she would pin her ears and become ill.What usually occurs when a horse acts out is our energy drops, and we hesitate to correct the resistance. The horse in turn learns that resistance works. I hesitate to tell you what to do, I really don't know what your ability is, and I by no intention want to get you hurt. If it's not wthin your ability, get some help.This is going to take someone who can seriously but fairly reprimind this horse. You don't want to start something you can't finish. This disclaimer being said,If it's within your ability, first working on lateral flexion and getting her to yield her hindquarters, with enthusium. Yielding the hindquarters is key, because when she reacts to something, this will be your correction. It also can keep you from getting bucked off. If a horse won't get off my leg when I ask them to yield their hindquarters, I'll use the end off my split rein and swat the hip over. It takes what it takes, but the horse was warned, first with heel then with spur, if they resist the message,we need to be able to get through the resistance, start with an ounce, but be prepared to use what it takes.
Now, having gotten control of the hindquarters, I want forward movement. I'll squeeze, go to heel, go to spur,go to rein if I have to. Our energy needs to raise,
Not just sitting there going for the ride. When she starts going, get going with her, Only when she gets to the speed and enthusium that we want do we quit looking for forward impulsion. The reward in it for her now happens as we quit pressing. Personally, I'd put this horse on the rail and do some green colt rollbacks.
Drive her out of the rollback with impulsion. This is you taking charge which is what your horse needs more than anything. Also it's you working both sides which makes her have to think. Unfortunately, she needs to find out it can get bad if she's resistant. When you feel she's has moved out nicely, let your energy drop, and let her drop her energy, slow and stop. Repeat, Repeat, Repeat.
The road won't be long if your assertiveand effective.
Feel free to contact me if interested and I'll give you a phone #.
