I’m scared to ride my trainer's mare because when I go to walk her around for our lesson she stops but if I hit her with the crop she will buck like crazy, do you have any solutions to help her move forward without her getting angry ?

1. More leg
2. The reins are not for control, they are for guiding direction...
I also have to have like no reins so I basically have no control what should I do?
