Well, I wouldn't be riding a horse that I cannot handle.
You clearly cannot be this horses leader, you need to find someone that will be.

Dancing Arabian gave some good advice- I'd master the walk before even starting to go onto the trot.

BUT before even mounting this horse, you need to work with her on the ground.

I just thought that maybe her old trainer was very mean to her that's probily why she does those things
She has a scar on her leg cause he left her tied up somewhere for the night

And if u knew my horse u would love her just as much as i do
Ask ur self how would u feel if some one u dont even know some one who hasnt seen u ride
How would u feel if they said that u cant handle ur horse
Do u think that some else would feel nice about it
To be honest i dont
Candy is the best horse i could ever ask for i couldnt sleep eat drink or do anything without her
When my mum says that we r going away for a while
U would leap for joy i will get excited then i would be sad cause i have to leave Candy
And Jackie is the best trainer u could only dream of
Shes like this site except she answers a bit more nicely!

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.

I would keep working on gaining control of her speed at the trot. When you ask her to canter, be sure you have good contact. If she goes too fast, slow her down. If she trots, cue for the canter again.

I believe that you had another post about this horse hating it when you tighten her girth? That, combined with her being bad at the canter, puts pain issues into my mind. If her saddle is not fitted just right, or her saddle pad is not the best one for her, or even the girth itself may be causing problems, or if she has an actual back issue, it could cause both of these problems. Have you had a good saddle fitter take a look at her? Also, if it is a pain issue, she should be obnoxious when other people saddle and ride her. If she is an angel for your trainer and bad for you, then you will have to work on respect issues.

Okay addressing ONLY the canter then.

First you have to eliminate all possibilities of pain. Have someone else check saddle fit, pad, bridle, bit, hooves, etc. every inch of the horse's tack needs to be checked.

Second make sure she isn't strung out and charging out of fear.

Third make sure she is working back to front and is balanced. Horses cantering out of balance will usually rush to try to work against the feeling of falling.

To slow her down, learn how to half halt. There's many threads on this board about half halts and how to ask for one properly.

Though honestly, ground work will establish yourself as her leader in her eyes which will make heroes respectful and inclined to listen to you. Assuming there's not a pain or fear issue, she needs to see you as leader and be respectful of your aids.

But if this trainer is so amazing --- why is she not helping you with this? It's what you're paying her money for!
