Default Any tips on staying balanced while hitting ollie-ons?

One of my problems when I hit an ollie-on handrail is I slide off in a second. I am the epitome of "White Boy Can't Jump" and so if it is a fairly high rail, it takes all of my might just to get up and then I will lean too far forward and fall off. When I started learning ollie-on box rails I would try to aim my board for the edging. That helped me out and gave me pretty good balance, but handrails obviously aren't that big of a target and so I evidently fall off whether it's in the front or from behind. How can you practice balancing?!?!
