Problem with horse loping

Ok so today I worked with my horse on loping which is something that she hasn't done in a while, but at the beginning after warming up I loped her and surprisingly her lope was really good. Normally she has a reallyfas lope and is all over te place kinda hard to control. But then when my sister came in the arena to work with her horse, my horse started to not listen and would back up when I wanted her to go forward and had a really fast trot and was just all over the place again. So Whenever her horse isnt in the arena my horse does fine with loping but when she is my horse always starts to not listen and just go all over the place.

Do you guys have any sollutions?

Is it only that horse or is it any horse that enters the room? To me it sounds like he isn't paying attention. He's more focused on that other horse then to you. A suggestion might be to work with both of the horses together, go for a hack in a field or just exercising together. See what their like in the pasture, do they completely ignore each other, fight, etc.

You must maintain your horses control. Work with him everyday if you have to. Do Serpentine's and figure eights, whoa and back up. Just do basics with him . He should than realize that your the boss, not him.

Good Luck :)
