I use:

walk
trot
and I kiss for canter

She generally responds well to these. To change gaits slower I usually begin with aaannnnddd trot/walk. It took a little while for me to figure out what worked for her, but when I did this it was obvious that she understood and was very familiar with it.

My MIL gets so irritated when I don't use "WHOOP! WHOOP!" to slow her down. She will even yell it when I'm longing, sometimes from across the pasture! Of course thats when I get irritated, but that is for another post! :D

Walk
trot
whistle for lope
Reverse
whoa
quit - when they are being naughty
out (when the circle is more of an egg)
Off me - with a flick of the lunge whip (when they drop their shoulder at me)

1 click or walk on for walk
2 clicks for jog, an additional for extension
smooch (nice and long, not small and quick) for lope, additional smooching for extension
whoa for stop (nice and long and low voice, soothing tone until stopped)
easy to come back in same style as whoa
open shoulder and arm in front end of horse, closed shoulder and whip behind horse ( so you're angled in the same direction the horse is going but still facing the shoulder)
opposite angle of body for stop or slow
i also raise my hand when asking for the lope/canter (just as a que which helps him to learn to prepare himself)

I use walk to for walk, once cluck for trot (well, running walk actually) and two clucks for canter and then whoa...

when i lounge i want him to really pay attention to my body language and vocal commands are just there to clarify the message
