Exclamation How do you stop a standardbred pacing?

Ok so I have a friend (ALi) and about two years ago she rescued a VERY neglected standardbred mare named brandie. Brandie has come so far with my friend and she can now go on the bit ok and is a champ at sporting. But the problem is brandie still paces every now and then especially when she comes back from a canter to a trot..but she paces instead of trotting. Ali is patient with her and ifBrandie trots coming out of the canter she will make her canter again and will try the trotting soon as Brandie TROTS she will give her a pat and a rest. I rode brandie yesterday and tried when she was pacing to slow her down to a realy collected trot and it worked once or twice....Ali rides Brandie in a double bit as she has a hard mouth and the bit is working.
What can Ali try to stop brandie pacing????
