The only advice I can give is to let your horse choose where to cross or go. They have a better sense of what the ground is like.
We were riding along the river and went to cross a drainage ditch for the farm field. I got across fine but my wife was having issues with getting her horse to cross where she wanted. We were at different spots but not far apart. Her horse fought with her to not go there. He ended up sinking to his belly. If we couldn't get him out, we weren't sure what we would do since we were too far from any road and in trees. He finally got himself out with us digging him out a little by hand.
