Ground Poles

Does anyone have any interesting ground pole exercises that I can do to supplement my mare's ground work exercises? I'm done simple stuff and some labyrinths, some elevated poles. *we just walk over the elevated poles for now* I'm working up to getting her to eventually jump over them so if someone has any ideas on how to best work up to that I'd appreciate it. She's got no qualms with them I just want her to be more aware of her feet.

A good exercise that you can do on the longe line is putting poles, elevated on one side, in a circle. Just far enough apart that they can trot through. Great exercise!
