PPlay the waiting game!
When she stops and has a hissy fit, do nothing other than keeping her facing in the direction you were travelling in and just sit her out. Eventually she will want to go somewhere, this will probably be after trying to go back to her friends several times, and when she does make her stand there for a few minutes longer and then go forward on your terns and not hers.
This can take quite a while to achieve but it does work.
The other thing is when she carts back to the barn make her work really hard around the barn, trotting and cantering, when she is really puffed, take her away from the others. Ride her a certain distance and then turn her back to the barn and then away again. If she refuses to go away take her back to the barn and charge her around.
It won't take her long to realise that the barn equals hard work whilst going away is far easier.
