You could set up a mini obstacles course, like going through these poles, around that barrel, etc either with you in the saddle or just leading. This way she can practice her steering more while keeping it interesting. Like BarrelracingArabian said, you can have someone walk beside her if she is unbalanced in the saddle.
I can't remember what it is called, but there is a game where you say a specific colour, for example, and that either means walk or halt. So when you say.. green, she has to walk. But when you say red she has to halt. Basically, it will teach her the aids for walking on and stopping.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
