Keep a few treats on hand and when she calmly manages to make a complete circle around you pop one in her mouth. Continue with the part circles but give her a little more line. When she will do two circles calmly at the walk, treat her then put her away. That is a big reward. Usually the next day it will be even better. Keep her to the walk for the next 5 sessions with the occasional reward. If she tries to come in to you just put her back facing the direction you want. Now, you need to try to keep your feet in the same place because if your step back that is her signal to come to you. Horses are inclined to follow what is moving away. You will find the few treats will help the process. Be sure to extend your arm so she has to turn her head away in order to have the treat.
I went over and tried this. She just kicked up more and backed up more. She kept throwing her head and snorting. She went two steps so I stopped her. When I try to start her out going forward, she backed and snorted. Then when she went forward, kicked up and scared the living daylight out of me.
