For what it is worth, I don't think that horse is as big as you were told. It also sounds like the person who owns the horse has not been forthright with you in telling you about the horses history. If she owns the horse, she should know who has ridden it and how it acted or responded as a problem/issue would go back to the owner quickly for resolution. Lungeing the horse is just going to build up it's stamina, not solve a problem. There are better ways to fix this with an investment of time, if you want to.

Well I have to say I was pretty pleased with my last time out. I took some advice from various fellow horseman friends. Changed my lunging tactic a little, and mounted away from the gate. She threw a couple 'temper tantrums' but I had decided before I even got on that I was going to ride out any little fits she had. I brought a dressage whip with me and whenever she started acting naughty she got a little tap with that on her rear end and she straightened right up.
