This may not help with "slowing down the trot, " but depending on what kind of riding you are trying to train for, trail riding will help you plenty. This doesn't have to be on an actual trail of course. It could just be between fields/bridle paths, out of an arena anywhere, etc.
Hill work can pretty much help you with any discipline, and lunging will help with transitions and balance (lunging can help you with slowing down that trot).
