Then when you do tie her make sure it's a safe place where she can't get hurt. It's okay to let her struggle and figure things out, just be close by if she does get into trouble. I wouldn't worry about the feet until you get her tieing well.
When dealing with her out in the field I'd take a horsmanship flag or a lunge whip with you, if you have the whip hold the lash with the handle so it's essentially a long stick. When she turns her rear to you send her away. Don't hit her and don't chase her! Just wave it at her rearend to let her know that's unacceptable behavior. Approach her again if she puts her but to you send her away and do it again until she faces you. This may take some time but it's a valuable lesson for her.
