Sitting trot, posting trot, 2 point at all gaits, stirrupless riding, lots and lots of transitions from backup to halt to canter (?gallop maybe)
stand in the stirrups , not 2 point, stand (you can lean slightly forward for balance with thighs touching the pommel if need be) when you can do it at walk, advance to trot, then to canter. While standing moving forward at any gait, lift your arms one at a time and hold it straight out in front of you, then straight up toward the sky, then back behind you. repeat with the other arm.
Or, while standing , hold both arms out straight out to the sides for several strides
Create some patterns in the arena to keep things interesting for both of you. PM me if you need ideas!
