Need new ideas for exercises

I need new exercises for my arabian, bozz, We walk 4 times around the area for warm up, then trot around twice, and we just started cantering last night so it would be helpful for some ideas, we usually walk and trot over poles laying on ground, and then around two barrels we are wanting to try something new, and build our relationship together.

She is open to new things, I've noticed she is kinda like a dog in the sense she wants to do things to please like a dog would for his owner. So new things please....

Thanks sarah

You could always move the poles and barrels to create an obstacle course. Walk over a pole, walk through two parallel poles then back through them, circle around a barrel and step over a pole while you circle.
You could also go over poles in the round pen too.
You could find some pool noodles, plastic bags, etc. and make even more obstacle courses.

You could do serpentines, practice sidepassing, etc.
