Some mares HATE to be squeezed. I used to ride a mare like this, squeezing = buck. Instead of using both legs, teach her to go from one. So, inside leg means trot, and outside means canter. Or, you can go a step further and teach her to go from your seat, so to trot you give a little thrust (to start, you use voice at the same time), and to canter you thrust with your outside seat bone.
Hope that helps..and good luck.
