Improving Transitions

I was wondering how can I improve transitions mostly from trot to canter and back on the lunge line.

Also how can you encourage them to stretch out of the lunge? I can get it for a little while but it falls apart soon after.

I have been finding so many holes in Spice's training that we're going from the beginning and working on little things and building up to where I feel she should be. Lots of work on balance, bending, transitions and rhythm. She has no verbal cues other than clucking so we're working on that too.

Any advice is good.

The best thing at this stage would be developing those verbal cues and your personal energy. Reward good behaviour, too.
