What is the best way to get a horse forward in trot? He’s good in a canter, but struggles sometimes in trot

Agree with James about physio. If he’s fine try and get access to a round pen and ride him in it. Really ride with your body and don’t let him fall into canter. It’s how we teach the yearlings at work to carry themselves and balance properly
Transitions are the key to have a horse forward, but if he's good at canter maybe you need to check if everything is fine for him with a physio 🙂
