    Pen needs to be drained, or not used.

    Good way for a horse to slip down, and harder going.

    Horse does look off too.

    And if this horse knows how to do all of this? Waste of time doing it over and over.

    But stay out of the pen if it can't be drained.

If the round pen is large, you might have a real challenge driving the horse around by merely standing smack in the center. I usually walk a very small circle when round penning, in part because I can match my body movement and energy to what ever I want the horse to do. A slow walk should get a slow walk out of the horse. Speed it up and horse should , too.

    Definitely lower the whip unless needed. It should be in neutral except when giving some kind of cue.

    You 're not doing too badly and your mare is very sweet. There are some good points here to add to what you are learning.
    This is what someone explained to me on here of how to do it due to my dizziness quickly taking over after just a couple of spins at a stand still. Now I have learned to get a better response from my horses in changes with the slightest of changes in my body language. It has given me the ability to constantly change things to keep their attention alert for those changes so neither of us get bored. I don't lunge very often, maybe once a month per horse once I consistently get a good session. I guess that goes a long ways towards keeping boredom at bay too.
