Stubborn horse HELP!!!!!!!

I have a 16.1 HH chestnut Quarter horse mare and she is EXTREMLY stubborn, she wont let me lead her, she wont move when I get on her either, I could run up to her in the most aggresive way, whiping the crop on the ground, and she wont care. She has no respect toward me. And I also checked to see if she was lame or had any pain. But no, its just that she is very stubborn. Do you think I could get her to be respectful toward me and get her to listen to me?

Hard to say without more information.
How old is your horse?
How long have you had her?
Where did she come from?
How much training has she had?
How much, and what kind of experience have you had working with and around different horses?

My recommendations, get some professional help. Because most horses this stubborn will react badly to not getting their way. And you don't want to get hurt.

It sounds like she doesn't have much respect for you.

For basic respect, you need to start getting to move her body parts. Forehand and hindquarters. Once you can get her to yield both of those, she should start listening to you. To get her to simply move forward with you, hold lead in one hand and a whip in the other. Push your hand forward and cluck or whatever. If nothing, put pressure on lead line and cluck. No response leads to, a cluck, pressure and a swift tap with the whip on the hindquarters. Pretty simple. She's just testing you to see if you're going to make her do it.

If she's not respecting you on the ground, there's no way she's going to listen to you when you're on her back. Work on these things first and she'll probably be fine when you get up on her.
