its simple, but takes practice:

if you're stopping with your left shoulder and left leg in the "lead", thats the leg to transfer most of your weight to, using the leg under you (the right leg) to support some weight to keep your balance and control.

try stopping with 1 leg going about 30% of your max speed. then when that is confortable, start including your other leg. make sure to practice any stopping exercise equally on both legs. when you have mastered stopping on your dominant side, make it 35% dominant & 65% weak side, hopefully until stopping on either side is equally comfortable

hope this helps
