I agree with puck re: transitions. One thing to note is don't always do 'lengthening on the long side, shorten on the short side' as some horses anticipate it and start to blast out of the corner. Mix it up a bit.
Additionally, if you have any hills in the area, lots of trotting up and down hills can really build up your horse's butt.
Rein-back can really help a horse sit on its butt a bit more. Don't over do it, but it's useful in the correct amount.
