Cantering on the lunge line

I've been working with my 5 year old mare on lunging lately. She knows how to walk and trot but She won't canter when I ask. I tried working with her earlier but once she gets up to a fast trot she either stays at that pace or stops and turns towards me.

What are some ways I can get her to take a canter while lunging? I know she's trying to do what I ask but I think that I'm sending her mixed signals on accident. Any tips or suggestions would help! :)

Are you using proper voice commands?
You could try asking her over a pole so she can "lift" herself into it.
Also get a trainer or someone with experience with this to watch you lunge, so that they can point out what you are doing wrong.
