WP lope..which method?

My horse is great at the walk and jog, speed and headset wise. We're working on our lope now.

I know there are a couple different ways to slow his lope down, but I can't decide which is best for him.

Right now I'm leaning towards loping him, when he gets too fast rollback and lope off in other direction.

Thoughts?

I had a trainer tell me to canter (or walk or trot) a few strides, stop and back up. Canter a few strides, stop and backup. Do that about four or five times and canter without backing up. Should see an improvement because they won't know if you are going to stop and backup or let them go on!

I do many different things between cantering small circles, cantering then stopping and backing up then cantering off again, cantering a few strides, etc...

I have found that horses will often scotch on the rider when using this method. I'm fond of the rollback along and toward the fence which besides slowing him down, gets him working off his hindquarters.
