Exclamation Exersices to create a more responsive horse.

So my last post was about Ohawna my spoiled disrespectful mare. Needless to say 1 day of using different methods suggested and shes pretty good now. backing just at a "shoo" with my hands (most of the time) rarely charges the gate and only needs a slight reminder thats a no no and will back up and watch well i get other horses out, she now respects the whip and lunges both directions w.t.c.
Thanks for all the help!

Now I would like to ask if there are any exercises I can do on the ground (i have a broken collar bone, and not allowed in the saddle for another 3 weeks or so) to get her .. more responsive.
I geuss what I am asking help with is..

Faster Back Ups
Quicker Turns
How to teach her to sidepass , do shoulder in/out ect.

I have been lunging every day in side reins so build top line as IMO shes a tad weak there and I am starting to see an improvment.

I would like to build neck muscle. any suggestions on how to achieve this? or will the side reins also do this and im just not noticing?

Sorry if I sound like a NOOB :P would appreciate any help.
