    And every time i'm going to do the lunge she's almost
    Run's me over

    Im starting the lunge, and than she just come's to me
    Instead of keep running
    And I can't use my whip beacuse than she will run me over
    And she can get really crazy when im doing the lunge with the

    Desensitize her to the whip, then start by leading her & asking her quietly to move away from you. Start with getting her to walk around you only at the length of a lead rope. Lunging shouldn't be her running around. Start at the walk. Use body position more than the whip.
    Take it slow & you'll both get it.

    she's not scared of the whip or something
    It's a fact that when ever I put the whip near her she
    Don't really care
    But if i'm starting to use it she wil start kicking and bucking
    She almost run-over me for like 6 times and i'm starting to
    Get scared from her...

    You sound far to young and certainly inexperienced to take on a horse that is in ned of very strict handling.

    She needs to be tacked up, a lunge line on her and made to keep to the outside of the circle. If she comes in then you crack the whip at her and if she still continues to come in then you give her a good lash with the whip across her front legs hard if you do it hard enough she will spin away and she might kick out so you give her a couple more across her back legs again hard.

    My experienced opinion is that there is nothing 'good or cute' about her when she is like this.

    That's not good. Let her kick & buck if you can't safely stop her, she'll get tired. If you've left her alone or stopped when she acted up you've taught her to do that, not that you meant to, of course. Just stay out of range.
    The next time she tries to run you over make her care about the whip. She can & will hurt you if you don't show her you mean business. You don't have to beat her to get your point across.

    She is not supposed to be scared of the whip. Like the previous post- she needs to be desensitized to it. The best place to do this is in a round pen, where she can not get into any corners and get away from you. If you don't have a round pen, do it in a small pen of some sort. You will probably need to work on desensitizing her for a while--so like you said you put it near her and she is fine, but when you try to USE it she gets upset--try running it over her shoulders, back, rear, and eventually face. Very softly. Just spend time doing this for a few days before you try to "use" it. She is just confused---it sounds like my horse. They don't know what they are supposed to do, and they get frustrated. Just like children.

    Once you have desensitized her, stand slightly in front of her, but to the side, with some slack in the rope, and tap her shoulder with the whip until she moves. If she takes even one step, STOP and reward her. Continue doing this on both sides, then you can work your way up to lunging. It is very important that when the horse responds you stop, and do not continue pushing her to move more. She will eventually understand this command and then you can tap her more and even move the whip toward her hindquarters to tap her to keep moving.

    LOL she really not good and cute like this >.<
    But other than that she's perfect
    It's just that if I will use the whip she will get on two legs and
    Crush me
    And I really don't want that to hapen, I have talked to a
    Trainer, and when he lunge's she doesn't do enything wrong
    And I just don't know how to handle her...

    You need to sell her. You don't have the experience needed to handle this horses problems. It will result in you getting hurt and the horse deemed "dangerous", and shipped off to an auction.

    And beacus I don't have a round pen it's kind of a problom...
