Teach your horse half halts; first in the arena until she understands, that half halt means slow down. Once she understands in the arena, then you can take her in the bush safely.

I agree with Stepher. Once you have half halts down, you can get your leads right.

I agree with the use of half halts. But in order to have a correct canter, you must have balance. Without balance, the horse will not understand the use of a half halt. Make sure you have a trainer to ensure you are going about all of this correctly.

By the way...half halts have nothing to do with pulling on your horses mouth.,
