You should try to get a video. So your saying...that when you hit her with the whip she rears (?), turns and comes straight at you..? Im not really sure what your saying. Did you have this "trainer" watch you and try to help you? You really really need to get some help before you get hurt and you teach her bad habits.

Well you definitely need an enclosed area. It is important you start small and go off some of our suggestions on here, but if you are not able then you need to get someone else to help you immediately. Like you said, you are scared and that makes it worse for handling the horse. My 3 year old did some of these things as a 2 year old, and I was fortunate enough to have my dad help me. Without him, I would have had to get someone else involved.

"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"

Then you should have shown the trainer what she does with you and asked what you should do. We can try to explain but someone is person can help a lot better.

We can offer all the suggestions in the world but we can't help you understand them well enough to carry them out. We also can't physically see what the horse is doing (and what cues you might inadvertently be giving her).

We don't want to tell you "try this!" and then have you get hurt because you aren't quite sure how to execute things. That's why it would be better to have a good trainer work with you, or even train the horse for you if you that would be better and safer for you and the mare.

If its you and she is good for the trainer than see if the trainer can teach you how to lunge. There is more to lunging then putting a horse on long line and letting it run around. There can also be a lot of things to manage, the horse, the rope, the extra rope, the whip and the circling. I would see if your trainer can help you.
