Since she is speeding up, I would sit a little deeper and ask for a half halt as well.
As far as why only at the canter... It's possible that she is a little unbalanced or uncomfortable in the canter, and this is her "excuse" (or opportunity) to let you know.
When you are approaching the corner what goes through your mind? Is it different, now, than the other corners? Sometimes the mere fact that we are anticipating something happening creates that exact response from the horse.
I've tried half halting, halting, sitting trot, getting her to bend. Now with the bend she refuses to do it. In every other corner she will bend easily and is really responsive but in that corner going one way she throws her nose out and if you ask her to put her head down she will throw it up in the air. And I don't think anything the first time and she does and I've heard that about anticipating and it didn't work.
