Training a pony to canter?

We have an 11 hand pony that the kids do walk trot on and also lessons on the lunge line. She (the pony) is still inexperienced as she just turned five. I ride her also to keep her in line but I can't get her to canter. I think she is just unbalanced and it is not comfortable for her. I am 5'7 and 118 so I think my size is difficult for her to handle. Any suggestions?
