    It's hard when you think you're making progress and then it feels like you just aren't. You want your horse to be able to do everything everywhere. It will come with consistent work.

    I'd just keep doing it all over and over again. Keep a halter on underneath and then put one on top, take it off and do it everywhere. In the stable, in the arena, in the paddock. And if you're going to be doing stuff like that, hold her, so if she pulls back you can follow her. Work out a routine, so your horse knows what you do. Like if you like to loop a rope around her neck to secure her before catching her, then do it in the stable even when you don't need to, or in the yard, in the paddock etc.

    And don't stress too much! It will come with time!

    Thank you everyone for the advice. My instincts tell me this horse should do whatever I ask her to do wherever I ask her to do it. Unfortunately, my mentor (and barn owner) has become very timid with the horses, so she sometimes cuts me off and encourages me to just do what works. Sigh. She is 65 and as I understand a completely different person than she was 30 years ago.... Someone else mentioned poll pain. I will look into that further. Unfortunately, we had to cancel with the trainer because it was 90+degrees here on Tuesday and my MIL put a stop to it.... On Sunday, my MIL's trainer is stopping over. She is going to look at my SIL's horses to assess show quality and she plans to "assess" mine too. I really respect her as far as riding training, but I've never seen her do any ground work, we'll see if we can address my and my horse's issues. Crossing fingers. The trainer I had made An appointment with is booked through October..
