What distance should trot poles and canter poles be apart? And what's the easiest way to measure them with your feet?

Hi!
For trot I separate the poles around 1/1'5m, and for canter I let 3'5m between 2 poles but it depends on how many strides you want and how long the stride of your horse is.
I measure them with my steps (about 1m per step).
