Having tackled this problem before I know how hard it is to make them move their feet one their head is already down and the more you push the more likely they are to rear. The best thing is to not let her get her head down AT ALL. If she is ok as long as you don't give in, don't give in. If she has an itch, tough luck. If she coughs don't throw your reins away and bring her head back ASAP without being harsh on her mouth. All in all, you need to make her realize that her tricks aren't going to work. And as you pull her head up remember to squeeze with your legs and push with your seat. Will her with your whole body to go forward. Make YOUR AIDS stronger than her will to buck. If you try this and it still doesn't work then I strongly suggest having a professional trainer work with her.

And to the "pro" that says smack her and keep're the reason that professional horse people have a bad rep. Thanks for helping to discredit those that are actually willing and able to help...
