I would put her in an area without things to scare or distract her and teach her to move forward and backward with float in the line. Then I would get the horse to lead by her feet and her tail and her forelock untill I could put some feel on any part of her body and get her to move.
Are you going to drag her around by her tail? How are you going to get her to that place where she feels safe without her flipping out on you? She's scared! She can't get anywhere without flipping out. If you pull on that lead she will find you at the end of it.I wouldn't face her. Keep on acting like nothing is going on. Try to keep on walking and keep her moving. Eventually she will come to realize that your her leader because if you snatch on her she will realize your in charge. I don't know. That's just my personal opinion. This has worked with many horses I have worked with. Maybe just with time she will understand that she's safe.
I understand you have and opinion of my opinion but please be nice about it. Its really not very fair.
