I would put her in a open ring snaffle(personal pref) and put her in a round pen if you have one and start her at a walk and ask for the whoa verbally while applying pressure with the reins. If she doesnt stop or is trying to push through apply more pressure and try and get her to break at the poll. Stopping isnt something you want to ask and not get the desired results. To me stopping is one of the first thing I teach after putting a horse under saddle. You can teach it from the ground or in saddle. I like to do it under saddle after teaching the verbal cue on the ground. Now I would walk her straight towards a side of your pen and ask whoa when the horse is nearing the edge while applying the reins. Gradually apply more pressure to get the stop, some horses at first take more than others, the instant you get those feet still RELEASE the pressure. This can take a few days to get it to where they are doing it really well but I find this method of riding into a wall giving them a visual reason for stopping really help to teach your cues to be applied anywhere you want to stop.
