You should look forward, relax in the saddle, and tell her to go, with a loose rein. At first, let the horse pick how fast her lope is, as long as it stays at a lope, and not a fast trot, or gallop. Once she gets the right lead, collect her and you choose the speed.
If you don't think you can handle her, get your trainer to ride her at a lope a few times before you. I don't think you should sell her unless you want to, or YOU think you should.
I ride western too, but I am experienced and know how to handle a green broke horse.
