    I personally like to find ways to play with my horses, rather than just finding ways to force them to do as I want. I also don't believe in using training & management that stops any 'gears' turning. I think using more forceful, confrontational methods makes 'bad' behaviour and 'testing boundaries' far more likely actually.

    swing my leg over and work on getting my foot out of the stirrup. She took to taking off at that moment.
    A safer way of dismounting is to remove your feet from the stirrups before you attempt to get off. That will eliminate the danger & inconvenience of hopping after your horse... while you teach her to stand for you.

    As she gets older she is getting better, but we are always on our toes around each other to see who is going to let their guard down. One of those that may benefit from a breeding.
    If you try to play with her, make your games worth her while, earn her trust & respect, there shouldn't be any need for either of you to be on guard with eachother. Not sure if I get the last sentence, but if you're thinking breeding her will improve her behaviour & attitude towards you, I don't think that's correct, and also she'll teach the foal those attitudes too, so I would strongly suggest develop a good, strong relationship with her before thinking about breeding, so you can give the foal the best possible start.
