Falling off once doesn't mean you have good balance, it means you've been riding kind horses, :P.
Lunging him with side reins on a 20m++ circle is always good for building muscle tone.
I would also suggest for you to take some lunge lessons without reins or stirrups on a different horse with a trainer and learn to get your balance absolutely solid. It is hard to explain over the internet how to ride in balance :P
