My horse knows how to get into a jog, but when he wants to pick up a working trot or he gives me a little "hop" into the trot, I simply stop him, ask him to walk, and ask him sloooowly and softly into a jog again. We can do this several times if he's in a mood, but eventually he'll get it and give in.
I think the biggest thing is teaching that slow and soft requests should be met with slow and soft answers. Hope that helps!
