Smile Video of me lungeing my new horse

So this weekend I went to my mom's boyfriend's house to work with Molly (I'm keeping her there with his horses until we can sell our stallion) and got a video of me lungeing her. She was doing really well with just voice commands, her canter could be slower on the lunge line but it's a lot worse under saddle....she doesn't have the word canter in her riding vocabulary! It's walk, trot, and gallop. My mom's boyfriend said if I ride her twice a week she'll be slow cantering perfectly in 2 months. Enough talking, here's the vid. I don't mind critique if you want to give it

Just a few things that pop out at me, although overall she is doing quite well:
-I'd recommend just lunging on one surface, instead of having her go on grass and the street.
-Try to be firmer with your voice, sometimes you sound like you're asking a question instead of expecting her to trot/canter etc.
-If possible, lunge in a larger circle and do a few straight lines (ie you go with her a few feet so she can go in a line instead of a constant circle)
-It may help to slow her canter down if you held the whip lower, when it's up like that it's active and it can make a horse go faster.
-the trot transition was lazy, if she doesn't respond in a second then you need to ask in a stronger way, typically with a whip.

Thanks for the advice. She wouldn't go in a larger circle; I think she was a little afraid of the new surroundings and the woods.
