Yes, running around and playing tag is fun :) You can also teach some fun tricks like fetch or hug. My horse and I have a lot of fun doing ground work exercises. Bending, sending, yielding hind and forequarters, backing up, etc. Any sort of groundwork you do can not only be fun but really improve your communication and respect.
I gotta agree with Kawairashii Ichigo though, just hanging out and running around with them is great fun. I like going and bringing a book and a snack and sharing quality nuzzling time too :) I think it's a nice break for horse and person to just hang out between working days.
