The trot is your friend ! Practice trotting small circles where you ride towards the fence then circle away from it. Remember don't look at the fence, bc that tells your horse you want them to go to it & you don't !
Also a great exercise for just all around control of their stride is to set up a 4 stride line & practice getting 5 strides, 6 strides, 4 strides. Trotting in & cantering out, cantering in & trotting out, trotting in & halting, cantering in & halting. As many combinations as you can think of =]
