What would you like to see as far as ground manners in a horse?

I'm currently in the middle of training my 2 1/2 yr old QH gelding, and would like to hear what y'all would like to see as far as groundwork and ground manners in any horse? I want to train this horse right.
He is green broke, but we won't be starting further saddle training until he's back up to a healthy weight, as he's pretty underweight currently. He already is very respectful in his manners, but I want to see what you guys would like to see in a horse for ground manners.
Any ideas welcome!

I want them to be able to lead with me not a head of me or behind me ( shoulder to shoulder). I would also want them to be respectful of my personal space( staying a respectful distance when walking and not being mouthy). And at that age I would probably start teaching to tie without hard tying(Like having the lead rope draped over a big branch and having them stand quietly there)
