Ginger does this same thing. If she doesn't want to go forward, she'll just walk backwards until we run into something-- even if I have her head turned, she just keeps walking backwards. Gotten better about it, though. I've decided I think I want my next horse to be a finished western pleasure horse. That's what my mom has and she's fantastic.
Actually, now that I think about it, the other horse that I've been thrown off of was another halter horse- turned- trail horse. Hmmmmm.....
