Well, its a combination of leaning and just being a turd. She will normally start out on my hand and after a few minutes of just walking/trotting around, stopping when she gets ahead of herself, backing up and changing direction, she will start to get the idea and mellow out and even do a nice slow jog that can be brought up to a more forward trot without much fuss.
At the end of our ride yesterday, I did the exercise above and when she would start to get carried away at a trot, I would just "heeey" and she'd be setting up to stop, and take her trot down a notch when I gave her a touch of leg after.
