How to slow a green western pleasure horse?

I have been working a friends green horse and she really wants him to be western but he is very fast both at the jog and lope. I have stared doing start stops but I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas?

Way too complicated to explain on a forum, it a series of exercises towards collection and the rider's body position, weight, aids. Your best bet is to get a trainer, otherwise you might end up frustrating yourself and the horse.
