longeing advice

I've been working with my mare for a while on longeing and stopping when I tell her to. I want her to stop when I tell her to and immediately turn to face me with her butt completely out of sight. She's been doing a little better but still not turning in to face me the way I want. Any suggestions on how to get her to face me when I want her to stop? I lean over and look at her hindquarters as if im saying "i'm going to get your butt," but she doesnt stop. I've also tried once sticking the whip on the opposite side of her but sometimes she just reverses and goes the other way, or walks right into the whip and stops when she hits it. I can get her to stop after saying whoa a few times and running my hand down the longe line but I want her to face me.thanks for your advice

Pat Parelli's 'Hide the Hiney' game.

Let's see if I can explain it (I'm REALLY bad at explaining things and them making sense )

Ok, instead of staying in one place while your horse goes in a circle around you, go with your horse. With the hand that holds the rope attatched to her, stick it out and lead her (trotting).

Watch her tail, cause when you're stopping you're going to 'step on it' (not acctually step on it, but act like you're going to). Slide that hand that isn't holding the rope down the role and grab it. Pull the rope towards your bellybutton and 'step on her tail'. Your hors should stop, and face you directly so you can't see her hiney.

You can google 'Hide the Hiney' game if I didn't explain it clearly :)
