How old is he? My KMSH gelding was VERY trotty at first! So much so I despaired of ever getting a consistent gait, but I got some advice and training sessions with a friend and we figured it out. For quite a while all we did was concentrate on transitions, different speeds, etc... all at a gait. While it's true that a knowledgable rider can usually get the gait whether they're trotty or pacey, I personally don't want to have to constantly work to keep him gaiting so I "set" him in the gait. We're kind of at the same point with the canter as you, or tranter as we call it,lol. Sounds like you're well on your way though, good luck!
