Is she truly bent? A video would really help for us to diagnose the problem.

Dear god woman, I thought your horse was dying with all the exclamation points...

Try tipping his nose slightly to the outside when you ask. Make sure you're going from a nice balanced trot where your horse is pushing off squarly with his back feet and then ask. I find the corners generally help while you're learning.

Is her back sore?

nope we got a chiropractor out a few weeks ago and she is fine:P forgot to add, she has a nice bend in her back and we are practicing on a circle so she needs to have a nice bend to do a correct circle.

To do a correct circle, yes, but perhaps she isn't really bent through her ribcage; a video would help.
