If you are trying to warm up your horse by lunging him I would not use the side reins and just let him get the kinks out. Hope this helps.
Thank you, FF! I'll look into website to see if they have something for reasonable prices. :)
MBP, I actually tried the old heating pad for week or so. I think she's less stiff (and bucked less in fact!), but it's a pain in bum to take the whole thing (together with the cord, because it's unattachable) to the ring.
