Exclamation Why won't my mare trot on her left rein?

Chilli, 16.3hh bay, almost 4 years old, i have backed her and i am trying to school her, i have done this before but never had the problem of not being able to trot on her left rein.

Basically, she can walk & trot on both reins on the lunge, but off the lunge she will refuse to trot on her left rein, she is fine on her right rein. I have had a vet and a physiologist out to see her to see if there are any physical issues that could be the problem, but neither have spotted anything.

Does anybody know what i can do to get her trotting on her left rein?
