I've lost my confidence in asking for canter, a number of fails, and now it's a big deal. Any advice?

Be confident once you get t had one time you will feel good
ok what I do is I lean forward enough to pet the horse, take a deep breath, and think happy thoughts before the accident or falls
Sit ,breath ,relax slide your outside leg back and inside leg on the girth
