Lots of transitions! If you have a horse that rushes or is excitable, limit the walk to canter transitions and concentrate on walk to trot, trot to halt, canter to walk, etc.
Use leg yeilding within a circle. Make it bigger and smaller. If you have jumps set up, wind around them because its random turning.
Use the long side to extend, use the ends for a regular trot then collect on the other long side. Throw in circles.
Use half halts before a halt to warn your horse you are about to do something....wether its a halt or a transition. Just make sure you have leg on when doing it so they keep up the pace they are before you ask for the change.
