I suggest you get a good rope halter, so she can't 'lean' onto the halter as leverage...I would get one with the extra knots so she has even "less" to lean against, atleast comfortably.
Drop the clicker training, and start teaching her to respect you, period...she should move her feet in any direction you ask, without question, where ever you are. Start with yielding her hips, especially because you mentioned that she tried to kick you...sorry honey, she's not excited, she's disrespectful, and she needs to be brought back down to reality. There are alot of different NH type methods you can choose from, that will help you gain control of her feet and mind, and keep her from hurting you and others.
And instead of stopping her when she's scared, just get her feet to move...I feel like a broken record because I say this in pretty much every training thread, but it's what works. Get her mind off of what she's focused on, and back where it belongs...on you...and the way you can quickest, safest, and most effectively do that, is to move her feet...back her, lunge her, do sending exercises, etc, and etc...making her stop and stand and stare at what she's afraid of only gives her ammo, and initiative to decide what to do about it for herself. Take initiative yourself, and get her attention back on you.
