Ideas for training a green broke horse


I'm in the process of training my green horse, and need some new ideas! She can currently walk, trot, and lope. I am working on getting her to pick up her right lead and we are continuously working to get her collected. She can back up quickly on cue, side pass, and respond to leg pressure/neck reining. She's bred for western pleasure, but I would like to teach her a variety of different things.

I need some ideas for different things I could train her from you! If you have any ideas of new tricks or other things I could work on, please let me know here!!

Trailering/loading, ponying, standing while you latch gates, jumping 18 inches, clipping, bathing, etc

Not exciting but very useful

Thanks, but she definitely already knows all that ground work stuff. I guess I forgot to mention that in my original post. She is completely de-sensitized and does great with anything done on the ground. I'm mainly looking for new ideas on what to teach her while I'm riding, not tricks necessarily but things within the Western discipline. I don't ride english or do jumping with her. But thank you!

We do lots of different things 'outside the barn'. Trails, ranch things, parades, and lots more!!
She is going to be 6 this month, we started her a little late due to a personal injury, then shortly after she had an injury of her own She is coming along great though, stubborn at times, but a quick learner. I'm just a little short of ideas on what I should train her.

Lately I've been thinking about working on more ranch work things with her. Opening gates, cow work, stuff like that. I might also try getting a quick stop out of her.
