Agreed. It is VERY possible, that she was trying to (and suceeded to) outrank you. When she saw that you were trying to tell her what to do, she said 'no way!' and charged at you- reversing your roles and making you the herd member and her the alpha. You need to get her back in there as fast as possible and work it out. As soon as she begins to move towards you at any time- make her go away! Use the ask,tell,demand method. First, gently ask her to move away from you by voice command, then if that doesnt work- tell her by swinging your rope behind her. If she moves towards you with her ears flat, head snaked out, teeth bared, or tail swishing, DEMAND that she gets out of your space. Don't be scared to smack her with your rope hard enough to suprise her. Rearing is no little thing, and charging is even worse.
Good luck to you!
