Yielding the hindquarters

So I am leasing a horse and this horse is a little disrespectful. I have been working on some ground work excersises but have a question about yielding the hindquarters.

So I put pressure on her hind end by swinging the lead rope in the air near it and putting eye contact on the hindquarters then when she doesn't respond I increase the pressure by putting the lead rope a little closer but sometimes she still doesnt respond. What is the next step of pressure?

do you guys have any tips?

welcome to the forum !!

i start by pointing at my mares hindquarters and kind of shaking my finger at her, then swinging the rope around in a circle toward her hindquarters. if she hasnt moved i start swinging the rope so it pats the ground near her hindquarters, and if she still hasnt moved, i let the rope hit her hindquarters as im swinging it. i also find it very important to not move my feet, just stand in the same spot and swing the rope til the horse moves. hope this helps =]
