Never heard that its bad for a horse to be lounged for exercise. Ever.
And that does not make any sense to me at all. Then what is it for??? EVERY trainer I have ever talked to recommends lounging for exercise if you can not ride, or to warm up your horse before you ride ect.
Just to clarify things, I am not talking about excessive
lounging. I am talking about a 5 min warm up before you ride, or whatever the reason.
