To get my horses to lope with their heads down, lots and lots of circles at a lope. I also take them to the country and let them lope for a LLLOONNNGGG way. If they are fast and excited at first, I just keep them checked just enough to keep them out of a run and let them go. They usually find their pace pretty quick. But if you don't have that kind of room, circles, serpentines, figure 8's, flexing and lots of direction changes should help. :) Good luck.
