Increase your knowledge, read books, watch videos! There are things you can do before getting a trainer. Sounds like you may be fairly new to horses and if a trainer isn't a viable option then you learning is. You're not going to become a trainer overnight, it takes a lifetime to learn, but it will give you a start. I would watch groundwork videos, and maybe check out the Parelli 7 games. These are fun and allow you to really work with your horse and have him respect you.
Let us know how things go! Don't give up yet. (:
