It could be that she is itchy, or hot or any number of things.
It's also the season for mares to start coming into their first heat - being two this would probably be her first ever heat cycle and could be very painful/uncomfortable. This could explain the excessive sweating and rolling.
My mare came into heat very suddenly when she met my new gelding, within a minute of touching noses with him she had dropped to the ground and rolled and just lay there biting at her belly. Got up and pawed like colic. It passed after a few minutes.

I actually think she is cycling right now, first time I believe... she has reddish brown stuff coming out of her private.... and if it is, this could explain why she was getting better before, and now is starting to not listen again... couldn't it?

This does not sound like immediate response to me. Giving her time to walk about off the line is enough to make her think that she was allowed to stop working.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Okay, well it was my mistake... but I still went back to it, and made her lunge again until she was good, I did not just ignore it, I still made her do it. I will have a more immediate response next time.

I am also waiting for someone to get back to me, about coming out and helping me a little bit, telling what I am doing wrong, what I should be doing differently, and showing my how to do stuff the right way.
