1. Don't whack her any harder than another horse would, & don't keep it up at that level. Get to highest level then start over at suggestion.
2. If that doesn't work (her knowing that Phase 4 is coming, so she'll move at Phase 3), forget the phases & do something that is so annoying that she has to move away, like, stick touch to a teat, ear fuzz, etc. If you find her annoying spot, she'll move.
3. Treats offered at random (not every time she does well) can turn a resistive horse's attitude around. You can hold a treat at her ribs, have her turn her head to reach it, & disengage her hindquarter to get it, as a start. Then you'll want to develop yourself as the treat for her by being a fun, solid leader.
You also do need to know why she's refusing to respond: is she dominant (Make me!) or is she scared & unsure of you as a leader? If the latter, she's frozen up & will blow if you keep pushing her.
