Just to be sure I am reading your post correctly - you are saying she has had a month and a half of training with the cart? If so, and if she is doing as you have described, I would have to differ with you on your opinion that she is, in fact, "well trained" to the cart. This is not an issue of her being "energetic" at all. I would suggest going back to square one on her driving work so that you can find and fill the holes that are creating this issue for you.
