Trachelospermum jasminoides - pruning

Hi, I have a trachelospermum growing up an arch.It is beginning to grow out from the arch a bit too much. Can anyone give me tips on when I should prune, how far back can I go? It’s an established plant that flowers every summer. Thanks
It was well established and didn't seem to mind being lightly pruned or hacked back, but I imagine pruning before growth starts is best if you're thinking of anything major.
In summer I also cut back most of the whippy growth that shoots out as the flowers die back.
It does drip milky sap which may be a skin irritant so best to don the Marigolds
