The OP could work on leg yielding and side passing, counter arcing at the jog, trotting spirals in and out and could also work on straightness, speed control ie. Practicing run downs, speed on the long side and slowing on the short side.
There's so many exercises to help with shoulder control, straightness and speed, but those are some that I use:)
