I'm guessing it's a physical problem too, probably in the hips but possibly elsewhere. She needs to get a good equine vet out to do a physical work-up to find the problem.
Horses don't just buck going into the canter on one direction because they have attitude - it's probably the clearest sign you can think of to say "I can't do that, it hurts".
A physical work-up starting with walk and trot in a straight line, moving to lunging without, then with tack on, completed with working with the rider on will find the problem.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
