Do you have any suggestions to shorten the canter stride?

Half halts and slitly lean back
It also may be helpful to do exercises with a few poles on the road, that way by adjusting the distance between them you can make a shorter strides:)
Sit up more and open your shoulders and raise your hands
Use your seat and see it that works
Soz I meant grip with your knees for a secure seat😂
Sitt down deep with you’re heels down... if you squeeze you’re horse will go faster with a bigger stride, also pull the reins back
Sit down in the saddle heels down and squeeze the saddle with your legs and if your horse isn't responding maybe pull on the reins lightly until he gets it he will get it eventually 😀👍
