    A tip I learned long ago & still use sometimes is when a horse is having trouble getting the correct lead, focus on getting your body in a position to help them. Look to the outside, even drastically & it will naturally put your outside leg back & shift your weight

    ^ its really hard to see if she is on the right or wrong because she takes such long quick strides...

    Thank you for explaining that. Lol. And I cue with my inside leg because a.) my instructor told me too because b.) she understands that I would like her to canter with that leg- or something to that effect. I'm not very good at explaining such things.

    Well, she is probably picking up the wrong lead because she is getting confusing signals from you. You press at the girth with your inside leg to secure the horse pushing to your outside rein, leaving your inside rein the "open door." You slide your outside leg just SLIGHTLY back, and squeeze into the canter
