As Valentina mentioned, definitely check your saddle fit thoroughly. Next, consider how well you are balanced going into the canter. If you are tight on your horse because of your nerves, this may be making your problem worse.
Try lots of transitions within the trot, going faster then slowing down. A lot of bucking issues are caused because your horse is not moving forward off your leg. This is probably why your trainer can canter him better. Doing the trot transitions should help get him moving forward better, so if he starts to buck you can move him forward out of it.
