Transitions, transitions and transitions. Mix in a lot of bending and suppling exercises. It works for my TB. A fun one I've been doing is, working trot on diagonal, transition to shorter collected trot when approaching the short side. Overbend during this phase. Halfway through short side, transition down to working energetic walk, coming out of corner do several steps of shoulderfore or simply overbend if he doesn't know shoulderfore yet. Come off rail and transition back up to working trot and repeat it all in the other direction. It's basically a flat figure 8 with transitions and bending mixed in.
