Hmm try this, consistant half halts keep her "aware" of you and keep her anticipating the next move, if she's being a witch half halt, tickle her, don't smack her, 3 times with your dressage crop (all at the same time, and NEVER drop your reins to give her the ol tickle lol) after a few times of doing this she should do as asked.

My mare is a bit lazy sometimes when I start her off, I then grab my dressage crop and she's all beans and gunpowder lmao. And all she get's is a tickle with it never a smack, maybe she is anti-tickle!

Another good suggestion which I will try. I'm sure they will all work - I just have to be more assertive (though why I have to be is beyond me - why can't they just do what I ask - which is just to go forward!!!! Lol.

There's asking....and then there's ASKING. Possibly she/he is the type of horse that likes to be ASKED a few times before he/she will anticipate more vrs. Balk at doing what you ask. Being more assertive in the saddle is a must, horses can sense if you are a leader or not and if they can get away with being silly and lazy some will try lol. Or maybe he is not so sensitive to the leg anymore, could be alot of factors that make your horse not want to move forward. Don't forget, moving forward starts from the hind end, impulsion! Good luck
