Once you have a good connection with your horse can you try connecting in different ways?
Why not try sitting down the whole session or standing up on something (stay safe or at liberty for this one) or get longer and longer ropes for distance work. If you are only used to using a 12′ line then try a 22′ one and if you use a 22′ line then maybe try finding a longer one. I know that once my own connection got better on longer ropes my Liberty work was better too.
Testing things is a great way to bring in variety to your play sessions and a great imagination is good too.
