They can be bull headed little beasts. Two options: get a couple of people on her, and just drag her in to the stanchion, or train her to halter. To drag her you'll probably need a couple of guys to put a shoulder on her, and somebody to guide her head. To train her to halter put the halter on, and pull forward increasing pressure until she moves toward you. As soon as she takes a step forward release pressure and wait a minute. Repeat until she steps easily at the first pull. It will take a but of patience, but it works.
