Teaching a Green Horse Leads?

I have a mare who is arond 11 yrs and has been a trail horse for most of her life. When we bought her a year ago, she hadn't been ridden in 5 years. She has been coming along wonderfully so far, and she's impressed me at the rate she is improving everyday. However, now I have to help her work on her leads, and I'm not too sure on how to go about that. She gets them most of the time, but usually I just ask her for canter and hope she gets her lead. When she doesn't get her lead, I have to simple change to try and get it. It may take two or three tries before she gets it though.

Is there any excersizes I could do to help her with getting her leads properly the first time? (: thanks!

Pull the shoulder and push the hip

Now its been a while but you can do this in the round pen...... get her into a lope or canter in a direction if in the wrong lead use the end of lead and pop on rump (pushing on hip) they generally will change leads

Now under saddle you can pick up on the inside rein (pulling shoulder) and put your foot into that hip

Its been a while since i've had lead problems
