Have you looked into her diet? Even though your feeding a calming supplement, have you got her on any 'hot' foods?
Sounds like you need her focus & attention, purely on you. Not half on you and half on the tree over in the corner. Start basic, just walk around. If you expect her to canter off, or get all ansy - she will. She can feel what your thinking and how your reacting. She's going to react to your reactions. So, walk her around - over some polls. Reward her good behavior, straight away.
How much time does she get out per day? If she's locked up in a stall all day - this may cause some of your problems. As bubba asked, are you working with a trainer? Someone could get injured - either you or the horse if you don't know how to deal with the situation correctly? Have you looked into pain? She might be trying to tell you something. Horses cannot speak, so they have to use other forms of communication. It is our jobs as owners to read it.
