some questions: is this during a lesson? what does your instructor say?

if you're riding alone or on trail then my question is do you control her other gaits? her walk and trot speeds?

do you know how to half halt? do you use it to make transitions up and down, gait or speed? it's a very effective method to alerting your horse you are about to command a different move.

seat is important. your horse should be sensitive to your seat, like sitting down and back with a bit of stiffness tells them you want to slow down.

you "not minding" is you riding to please her. not the other way around. that's unsafe. when you're on a horse you MUST be in control at all times. aside from certain situation where you're depending on your horse's abilities, you should be the one who is the leader. if you're not a strong leader and you have a strong headed horse, that's not a good situation.

Is this the same horse that's charging through gates with you? If so, it really sounds like you need a trainer on the ground to help you.

I know how to do all those things
I can easily make her slow down when it comes to trotting and walking
I just like a little quick jolly spring to it
But if i make her slow down at canter then she just goes to trot again
Im goin to try what you sugested thx very much

I do have a trainer on the ground its a group lesson just sometimes she would go through the gates i can get her back into the arena but i get scared in case something happens to her or me
And yes she is the same horse charging through gates but she only does it at trot very rarely at walk
Never at canter

that sounds dangerous
what does your trainer say?
How old are you? How old is your horse?
your horse senses your fear

I think you should stop all trot and canter work on this horse until your walk is solid. Also add in groundwork sessions. She's either lacking respect for you or has big holes in her training but probably both. If the slower speeds are not solid, changing to a higher gait is not doing anyone any good.

Your trainer should be helping you solve this problem and it doesn't sound like she/he is, so perhaps a new trainer is in order too.
