So, the trainer has the line, right? I would think you're trainer would know how to correct it. It's also a balance thing. If you lean forward, it's more natural for the horse to start in a canter. Try leaning back a bit if he does. It may feel unnatural at first, but that's what you want... you want the horse to feel unnatural so he will start trotting again to equal out his balance to match yours. Other than that, your trainer really has most control on foot if you don't have reins.
