trot poles should be 4.5ft maybe even a bit less if her trot stride is short. I like to set bounces at 9ft if they are poles and 10ft if they are jumps, regardless if you trot or canter in.
A one stride trotting in should be 18ft. For cantering in, remember, you take the length of stride + 6ft for landing + 6ft for take off.
