i'll give you some ideas. don't know if you ride in arena, pasture or down the road though. i ride in arena and pasture. if you have cones or buckets to circle around that helps too. here are ideas without any supplies.
mix it up with your rides. don't always walk, trot canter, etc. sometimes i do only walking and halting, backing, and relaxing. other times i do conditioning timed rides (trot 15 minutes, canter 5 minutes). you can practice your position by riding in 2 point or without stirrups. you can practice figures like serpentines, figure 8's, clover leaf, etc, at walk, trot then canter. if you don't have an arena you can use landmarks like trees, fence posts, etc to designate where you will turn or make changes. you can also use old buckets or milk jugs to mark off an area. i play games, too. stand and face the arena wall, then turn and race to the opposite end. try shortening or lengthening your stride. on first try you might canter 18 strides down to the end, next time try to shorten and canter 20 strides, then next lengthen and canter 16. same with trot strides. pole work helps stretch them over topline so that's good if you have poles. my one old horse has such short strides in the back that he steps on the pole with his hind so i don't do that with him. hope this gives you some ideas. i have tons more! lol.
who is the horse with the blaze in your pics on the bottom?
