How should I prune this? Thick trunk/stalk rose bush.

I have what I've been told is a very old rose bush. Instead of multiple canes sprouting there is a single thick trunk that comes out. I'd like to know how I should go about pruning this rose. It flowered once in early summer and then stopped except for a few random buds.
