help training the youngin

I have a nice mare she is 2.5 years, about 15.2 hands. I got her May 20 of this year. She is a really fast learner, when I got her she was a rescue and scared to death of humans. She had been badly beaten and miss treated, I couldnt even get in the same pasture as her without her freaking out and running. (our pasture was 1 acre). It took 2 months to be able to pet her and after I coud pet her and she trusted me everything else was pretty easy. She is great at tying and learned that in about 10 minuts, freaked out once and never since and gets tied regularly. She leads amazing, lets me get n her saddle her, she stops and goes under saddle.

I have only tried riding her yesterday and today, but she will NOT turn right, she just goes in circles to the left, she will do small ones and pivoting and go in a straight line. That's it. Any ideas on how I could fix this?

First off, good job on your success with her so far.

Does she yield to pressure from both directions on the ground?

She does amazing on the ground, she does good with pressure and pretty good with words. I can free lounge her and tell her "left" "right" "easy" "reverse" and she does all that.
