I think you just got to get her sensitivity level up again to it. as soon as she responds into the pressure that you are asking release, that way she knows how to make the pressure go away instead of fighting. Also eliminate any pain issues that could be there. Seems like you need to build a better stopping attitude, you can keep a constant light pull on the rein, and than as she doesn't slow down or stop, progressivly pull more, till she at least slows down in the begining, and eventuially she'll figure out that to get away from that pressure she can (at the begining slow down) and than stop and you'll release it and make it go away. And onetoomany was right, longeing isn't going to do much, unless your bettering your voice commands, and re-enforcing the respect on the ground. I hope that you understood and this helped. you should see a difference after 20 minutes of working with her just at a walk, you have to start slow and work your way up. if that doesn't work try the indirect rein stop where you slide your hand down one rein and pull it towards your weist, and only release that pressure once she stops. Yet again you have to build that sensitivity level up. The slightest try don't be afraid to over emphasize your reward, but when you do it, also mean it. :)
you can start with nothing, and out of nothing or no way, a way will be provided.
