Just a note for safety sake - it's very dangerous to lunge a horse with a chain. Chains should be used in conjunction with a normal lead rope (with some exceptions) and not used in activity. The horse's nose is full of nerve endings and especially with increased gait, the chain can rub painfully. If the person lunging has to correct the horse at all, the effect is of course multiplied. If the horse puts its head down or somehow gets away from the handler and steps on the line... yikes.
I don't know why they even make lunge lines with chains. Makes me shudder! (Having said that, some bits do that too..!)
