Your body language is too loud and you are driving them forward, or they are not paying any attention to you and being disrespectful. They will not canter forever. If they don't come down from canter when your body language is asking them to, then keep them moving forward for another circle or so, then try again. Eventually, they should respond, and when they do, they get the reward of you not pushing them forward. Then, it should start taking less and less time for them to understand.
