what are your excersises for getting a horse balanced?

Just out of curiosity I thought I would make a thread and see what kinds of excersises everyone has for getting an unbalanced (very or slightly) horse balanced.

What do you mean by "unbalanced"? Like he leans to one side on a circle, is heavy on the forehand, has a hard time carrying himself...?

A good exercise is riding up and down hills/slopes, to help the horse balance.

Lots of serpentines, changes of direction and circling in and out of a 20 meter or so circle for me!

Okay...my favorite are lateral movements. Leg yield, shoulder fore, turn on the forehand, spiral in/out on a circle (assuming this is a fairly green horse since he is unbalanced in the first place). Hills and transitions too.
