Three strikes (meaning verbal warning, verbal warning with a tap on the stomping leg, stronger verbal warning with a hard whap on that leg with the riding crop).
If she's still being snotty, I'm sorry that leg is going to wish it was dead after I round-house the riding crop and holler a "I said NO!"
Just don't have the horse tied when you do that because it will jerk back and probably break loose. Have one hand on the lead rope.
Believe me that sort of discipline is a lot kinder than discipline from the alpha horse in the pasture. Or maybe she IS the alpha and was trying to "lord it over you" so she could get to her herd before someone else took her position.
Either way, that kind of behavior is unacceptable (even if she's under the PMS weather she still needs to have manners) and needs corrected before she goes out the door
