I'm not quite sure I understand correctly, but this is what I'm going to say, and if it's not what you meant, by all means, please let me know.
You mentioned that she already has problems stopping and backing up right? I would definitely work on that in the ring, both on the ground and on her. Than once you've mastered that in the ring, take her on the road, but walk with her, instead of ride her. Get her comfortable with walking slowly, stopping, and backing on the road (as long as it's not a busy road of course). Than once she seems ok with that I'd give it a shot with you riding her. If she still continues to walk fast, I would check her or one rein stop her, once she's ok with the stop, she should be ok with it on the road. I hope this makes sense lol. GOOD LUCK!. And let me know if I missed anything. :)
- If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday?
