When Pool Pump and Light On Breaker Trips

I have a pool pump and an inground pool light on a GFI breaker. The pump works fine, but when I switch on the pool light the breaker trips. I tried a regular light fixture and the breaker still trips. Any ideas?

Either a breaker that can handle more amps or a separate breaker for the light.
