Smrobs, on a young and unpredictable horse (such as mine) it is helpful to lunge, with some I completely trust so I don't have to worry about him at all, and can just focus on me. On a well known, well trained and trusted horse you would not have to worry about this so much. I think that maybe you don't get the lunging thing because your seat, hands and everything else are where they should be, and you train your horses well. But for those of us who are still learning, it is helpful to have an instructor take care of the horse so we can focus on ourselves.
