What is the diameter of the pen and is it enclosed or open?
It sounds like she is a little claustrophobic which is typical of horses in general. If the pen is what you want to train in, then I would put her in there and leave her alone for a while. Let her get used to it a few times before you work her, then when you do, keep it light for a while while she builds confidence and comfort there.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
