What are some simple tricks to teach my horse?

I'm working on bow, and I was wondering if anyone had any unique ideas? no rearing or bucking though. I'm already considering shake hands, hugging, kissing, and nodding. any more I should add to the list? thanks!

I've taught 2 of our horses how to bow, jump in hand and lope beside you. I even have my mare side passing at a stand still, walk and jog on the ground. All our horses will hug u and u can even train them to give kisses(my mare just sticks her nose near my face for a kiss. I use treats or some type of food so every time they do it right they get a treat. Good Luck!!

Shaking hands turns into a nightmare for farriers. Why don't you try dressage moves? Diagonal passes look like dancing.

You can also work on side passing until you can do so at a canter.
