excercises for horse

So I have recently injured my back(still pending on the extent) but at the moment I am not allowed heavey riding and that's what I have to do on my boy so I am turning to ground work. I need some fun games and stuff to work with him on that can help improve stopping, voice commands, respect and so on. Anything you guys can think of hit me with it! :] thank you so so much in advance!

Voice comands can be taught lunging. Ask him to "walk" then back your command up with a tap on the rump or watever method you use for him to move forward. Same with trot and canter. Then whoa. And yank the lunge line so he stops. Its very repetative but soon he will learn voice commands. Work on stuff like leading. I kno its simple but it will help with respect. He should not pass you if he does stop take a crop and tap him on the chest and make him back up to "respect your space" you can teach him tricks. That's always fun and you can relay it to cues you can give him on his back when you are able to ride. Like a bow or noding his head yes or no or pawing. If your brave and your horse wont abuse it... rearing. But please don't start this if you are not 100% sure of yourself

Sonny-he doesnt pass me when leading we worked alot on that I can run and he will trot next to me and ill stop say woah and he stops next to me. Right now im working on getting him to yield his hind end and then I want to work on the front. I do not think rear is safe on him as in the past he would use that as a evasion technique and I just broke him of it. I have always wanted to teach him to bow though! With the lunging he knows walk trot and canter voice canter takes a bit of pushing but its stopping him that I need to work on because that's our main problem in saddle and I think this is a great time to work on the ground solidifying it.
