Anna, spend some time working with her feet. I have spent the winter working with my 6yo QH's feet. I start in the stall, when I'm cleaning around him and making him move out of my way. I pick up whatever back foot is cocked FIRST, pull up in the cleaning position, hold for about one minute, then say, "down" and I put the foot down. Then, I make my way around to do all the feet. You don't have to clean the foot, just handle it.
