I could be totally wrong here but maybe a session or two with the line to help keep her facing forward and under your control you could try again?
I don't want to use a line because I've never had to before, so for one thing I'd be pretty much teaching her something completely new. I also just prefer communicating with her through body language and voice and such, it kind of is like our time to do some real trust-building and such.
I did try the line just to see what would happen, but as I pulled forward on the line and faced the whip toward the back of her legs she just sidled her hind legs over and stayed close to me. I don't know how to get her to actually start to walk/run in a circle, she just stays close to me.
