    Ok thank you. Would you be able to give me some ideas of things I could do in the ring instead of poles or barrel typ things. I do figure 8's with her a lot and im trying to teach her the one rein stop and she's doing better at it.

    This site has a PDF you can download that had different patters you can work on in an arena setting: 10 Fun Arena Exercises Click on the link next to the orange arrow at the top of the page that says "Horse and Rider's 10 Arena Exercises".

    Other things you can do is set up optstacle courses and make up patterns to go around them. You can do this leading her and riding her: Obstacle Course Work

    Other than stuff like this, I'd say get out on the trail as often as possible. Let her know there is other stuff out there to do besides running a pattern as fast as she can.
