Good exercises for young/green horses on both the flat and jumping?

Good exercises for young/green horses on both the flat and jumping?
Circles
On the flat- Trot poles, caveletti's, 10and 20m circles, figure eights, small bounce/gymnastic poles courses, depending on how green we are talking, if you want more challenging excersice: Extensions, Collections,getting on the bit,half passes, flying lead changes, bending, turns,temo, impulsion,and stretches. Jumping - Small courses, bounce jumps,jumps with poles before and behind,cross rails, wide singles and again if you want something more challenging: Introducing oxers, water jumps, some skinnys, and figure eight bending/jump excersices. Hope this helps!🙃
Circles, collection and extension, and basic poles. Grids are nice and doing a small course with no real extreme “jumper” turns
