I used to squeeze with my knees but I read on a post that wasn't such a good idea, it does the oposite of what want I guess lol... thanks again!
When they are diving in too early, I will genrally run them past the barrel and keep going around the arena rather than turning.

Or another alternative, let's say they are anticipation a right turn. Stop right next to the turning point and haunch turn to the left.
