What to do with yearling next?

I'm looking for something new to do with my yearling to keep him from getting bored. He sits and neighs at me whenever Im outside an basically begs to be handled.

So far he:
Leads excellent
Fine with grooming
Fine with feet
Easy to catch
No problem bathing (drinks from hose)
Trots nicely on lead
Lunges great (walk, trot, whoa)
Fine ponying in trails, roads, by 4 wheelers
Good with dogs, kids, loud noises (guns/fireworks)
Has been saddled with a small pony saddle no problem
Good with blanketing
Walked over tarps
Walked over poles
VERY respectful of space and attentive

What else can I do? He's an Arab and such a quick learner!

Check out thread "Games" to keep my horse thinking.

Basically anything & everything, short of putting weight on him or high impact type stuff - I'd keep lunging to a minimum & slow, big circles.

Take him out & about to experience stuff, long line, tricks, stuff at liberty...
