    As a dressage rider, I would not suggest using a whip on this horse, especially if the horse is already unclear on the concept of turning/steering correctly. You are going to complicate things and frustrate your horse.

    Having someone stand in a corner sounds like a good idea. But its not. If the horse really does continue running into the corner with someone standing there rasing thier arms, this is going to encourage rearing. That is a serious problem.

    The best advice is to find a good trainer who knows what they are doing. None of us have actually seen your horse. And it could be something as simple as ill fitting tack.

    Ok im making this short and sweet.
    If she wants to turn one way, turn her the other. If you don't like using a whip, use spurs, or get a confident rider to help you out a bit more.
    I ask you this. Why do you think she wants to turn into that corner? Do you always stop her there? Is there a exit there?
