I'm going to go on a slightly different tangent here due to an experience I have almost every day with my little mare who I got in August last year..
Have you checked to make sure your horse doesn't have a sore poll? Might sound odd, but my little mare was extremely headshy, wouldn't tie up anywhere anyhow, everything that needed to be done using her head was mission impossible.
I got the chiropractor out to have my gelding done and thought hey, why don't I get Dj done too, just for the hell of it..... Turns out she was out in her poll badly, and in several other places. Well, next day, changed horse. I tied her up and left her there and she just stood, she didn't worry about her halter being out on etc, completely changed. Now and again she still has moments and then seems to remember that it doesn't hurt.
However, that is only a possibility and I highly agree with everything that has already been said. What does she do when her poll is touched? Just worth checking is all, as I thought Dj was being naughty and stubborn and everything else, turns out she wasn't.
