I'd go and find yourself a decent dressage trainer too. You can't learn dressage from the internet/a book!! You can get advice, but you need someone there with you on the ground to point out where you're going wrong.

I know that it would be easier if I got a good trainer but the fact is there is no dressage trainers in my area :(

~~**UPDATE**~~

We trotted Phoebe up yesterday and there was no sign of lameness in her at all so I took her for a walking trek and she was really good and did a wee trot in the paddock when we got back. I rode her again today and took her in the far field and I am going to start working on the dressage scale and was counting out her strides in each gait while we ran through and easy low level dressage test. Well she has a good rhythm in her walk and trot but just needs some work in her canter. So I am going to work on her canter and transitions before we move up in the scale.

So my question for today is how can I get a better rhythm going in her canter?

Thank you to everyone in advance :P

Whooooooooooooaaaaaaa there hun.
You need to condition the horse first! How long has she been off??
If it's been for more than 4 weeks, I wouldn't be even thinking of cantering right now. If it's been more than 2-3 months I would only be walking for a while.
And in any situation with a horse that's been off, you need to start your conditioning on a good, flat and fairly soft surface (aka an arena) to avoid undue strain.
Talk to your vet about a good conditioning program to put your horse on.

Good luck!
