She has not learned to properly give her feet, and accept having them held, until the person gives that foot back.
Every time she succeeds in taking it away, that bad habit just becomes more ingrained
You need someone to help you, that is experienced and can show you how to teach your horse these manners, that any horse has to know, for feet trimming,shoing ect
If you need to use a rope-do so. Just be prepared to succeed or otherwise, you are just enabling her to continue to act in this manner, and having it become an ingrained response, harder to break.
