Help break a gait!

Figured I'd repost this on here, makes a bit more sense.
So my mare, a 9yo Standardbred who paces naturally, won't canter.
SHe used to canter amazing!!
She can walk and trot, but whenever I ask her to canter, she just cross canters, starts to rack, gets really fast, starts to canter and then something gets weird with her back legs. My riding instructor says she's just tripping and I need to push her forward, but it's the same thing every time.
I obviously screwed her up somehow, and I have NO idea how to fix it.
I've been working her in the round pen, and she does much better there, than with me on her. So maybe it's my position.
I've tried going over jumps and into the canter, but she breaks instantly.
I figured I'd start from square one and re-teach her to canter correctly.
Anybody have suggestions???
