And I am getting lessons this fall...i took lessons for 4 years, then had to stop when my trainer (my Neighbor ) Moved, but I have lessons signed up for this fall:) and she has been trained, its just that when I got her, she hadnt been ridden for a few years......

Then, and only then, do you attempt to canter her. We sometimes jump to the fun cantering part too quick. Teach her at slower gaits.
Has she been properly trained?
Have YOU been properly trained?
Hire a trainer ....
