General Jumping Exercises

Hi, on monday I have an interview style exam for my PE GCSE and for one part I need to analyse a riders performance and create 3 progressive practises and a 'conditioned game' *this annoys me as they assume all sports are invasive games but anyway* to improve a weakness so I was hoping you guys could help me out!

I need a few and they need to improve things like reading and altering strides, tight turns, flying changes over fences, and well anything really because I don't know what weakness I will have to try to improve...

I have 1 at the moment to give a general guide to what the examiner is looking for- Improving jumping position:
1) hold correct position at halt, then in walk, trot and canter on the lunge
2) hold position over canter pole (take off lunge when they get the hang of it)
3) small fence and increase height as long as position stays correct.
Conditioned game) simple grid with a fence-double stride- fence single stride- fence layout

I know how I would improve such things myself but I wouldn't do it in the layout the exam board wants us to lol and I have a mental block every time I sit in the stupid interview room so I need some sturdy ideas I can fall back on. Oh and think basic, like really basic, because I need to be able to describe it to a hores-illiterate teacher in about 3 minutes

Thanks guys :) slightly nervous because its about 20% of my pratical grade

This whole channel is full of helpful things, but I particularly like this exercise:
