Try doing lots of different transitions out of canter so he gets used to stopping and slowing down straight away. That should help his trot after. Good luck 😊 Don't worry if it takes a while to fix 😊
I would say that sitting straight, keeping your heels down and distribute your weight to the right places would make a great starting point. Keep your horse occupied by doing different exercises. Try to keep him/her as focused as possible on the exercises you are executing. You can also try canter poles or cavalettis. Arrange them in a way that makes the horse "forced" to be focused :)
Also, don't forget half halts :) The second you feel the horse getting stronger; do a half halt! You could also do this while riding in circles (I don't know if that's what it's called in English😅)
Hope this will help you somehow!😊
