    Great posts!! If you have ever really long-lined a horse, specially a young one, YOU will tire out long before you do any damage to it...... we are not talking about putting a chair in the arena, having a seat,and letting the horse run willy-nilly around. This is about teaching a horse(and driver) consistent contact with the bit(quite difficult from 30' away), moving laterally on the circle, and accepting whip and voice cues.

    On a young horse, I run the lines through the stirrups, or tugs, or lower rings on syrcingles, so when they get confused and spin, the lines are low to make the correction. Otherwise, they get twisted around.

    Thanks, michealvanessa!

    long reining your welcome

    Nancy your welcome and thank you.
    The beautiful thing about this type of work is human and horse complement each other we both learn from our mistakes and that's why we carry on and strive for a good partnership.
    And a bond builds up and the spirit of the horse stays intackt and he learns that work is work and play in the feild is free chill out time to be a horse again so he can buck rear role and eat and enjoy life to the full through out his working corear.
