...slow his pace?

I need to get Stosh to slow down after I give a command in herding. For instance- he'll be in a down at a good distance from me and I'll be near the sheep. When I give a command for the direction I want him to go to move the sheep he starts out very fast and it's a challenge to get him to slow his pace or change to a walk. I've practiced 'slow' and 'easy' at home and he seems to know what that means but when he's approaching the sheep he has a hard time responding. He's not on a lead because of the distances we're working and I have control of his direction/stop/down but can't get the speed thing under control. Any suggestions?
