I will say that the good news is that since bringing her into the new barn, she is considerably MUCH better standing tied when in the barn than when I first brought her in. And I think a lot of it has to do with the fact with familiarity and shes gotten used to the new barn.
In the first few days I wasnt even able to groom her because she kept shifting over left and right constantly and I was spending so much time moving her over. But now, she is so much better.
She will still be rude when she wants and move her hind my way, but I aggresively move her back. And if she does it again, I will wallop her hard on the belly and with her being very sensitive, it gets her attention alright. Her head and ears go up right away.
People have mentioned for as a third time (if she were to do it a third time) to stick out the end of my hoofpic. Im still unclear on how this exactly works. Cause when she comes into you, youre almost gaurenteed to take at least one step back so she doesnt run over you. So if you were to stick the end of your hoofpic at her barrel, its not going to do anything. Someone please clear this up for me?
She even did this to the trainer a couple times and I watched how she corrected her and she did just as I did...took a quick small step back to get out of the way but then immediately aggresively moved her hind back over by putting lots of pressure on her hind and walking into her.
If she swings my way when tied, I apply a lot of pressure on her hind. Literally push with both hands while walking into her.
If she swings away from me when tied, I apply light pressure on her hind, just 2 fingers and lightly on her hind with me standing still.
So hopefully she is able to differientiate the significant differences in pressure between the two scenarios.
