Convulsing Trot!

Hi everyone
I am excersising a 5yr old QH mare for a friend. She is sound and has no health problems (Other then that she does not grow a winter coat). She has an extremely bouncy, uneven trot, that feels like she is convulsing. I am currently riding her english (she is trained english and western) and she does not respond to leg very well.

All in all she is GREEN. Does anyone have ideas for getting her to smooth out her trot and teaching her to listen to leg. Any help would be wonderful(:

To me (not a Vet, don't play one on TV either) the "doesn't grow a winter coat" thing is a red flag. If I remember right some adrenal ailments (like cushings) can cause coat problems. Has she been fully checked out and the vet told she doesn't grow a winter coat? I'd sure want to verify there wasn't an underlying issue before working on this.

My appy has a choppy trot (due to her upright shoulder). For us it was working on strength and balance for her so she could "relax" into the gait.
