Exclamation Stubbron Horse.....Tips?

Ok, so I have a pony who is really stubborn, but she is really obedient to me. So she is always fine when I ride her, until a couple weeks ago. I saddled her up to go for a field ride, and I tried to get her to walk, but she wouldn't go anywhere!! She just stood there. I tried everything, but she wouldn't go. I don't know what went wrong, and so I really need help cause I have NO CLUE what to do...... so can somebody help?
P.s- I don't really like to whips. She is kinda scared of them.......

THANK YOU!

I'd say she has your number, and know you won't force the issue, so she is planting herself.

The mere sight of you carrying a whip, might unstick her. But the more she gets away with this, the worse it will be.

You may have to use stronger legs on her, or circle her to get her to go forwards, but I am more inclined to use whip on shoulder/flank, just a light tap, to let her know you are willing to use it.

Thanks! Yes..i tried to turn her in circles to make her go forward...but it didn't work:( I guess I will just use a whip, and just show it to her, not use it. Cause if I even just carry a whip, then she goes without hesitation..so should I just carry a whip until she starts moving without a whip?
