I'm not sure what your situation is like, but I would first drive all of the other horses away then make the horse I'm working with stand on lead and when I open the gate, if they overstepped me, I'd back them up and make them stand. When I open the gate all the way, then I'd let them walk out peacefully. And make them stand while I close the gate closed again.
