Training your Tennessee Walking horse to canter.

Hey guys :)
So, I've finally decided to train my Tennessee Walker to canter under saddle and I was wondering if anyone has had experience doing this? Or anyone who has experience training any horse to canter undersaddle for that matter!
I've gotten her to pick up the canter in a small circle but she doesn't maintain it for very long which I expected.

You don't need to be cantering in a small circle...gets legs tangled up, especially on gaited horses.

Does this horse ride well? Come back to you when asked?

Do you have arena or field?

Then move horse up into a canter. They canter all the time in fields, under saddle and do a lovely rocking chair canter very comfortable to ride.

It takes young horses some time under saddle to figure out balance during cantering, along with that they need to develop some new muscles that aren't used so much just cantering at liberty in the field.
