there is definitely nothing wrong with lunging before riding. i do it most of the time. i prefer them mostly to warm up lunging rather than with me in the saddle and then when you finish lunging you can tighten your girth and hop on and you are all ready to go

keep her really busy and keep her guessing when you are working her. walk to trot, halt, halt to trot, walk and so on. if she is busy and not pre empting what is going to happen she will more likely behave and will have no time for sillyness

good luck. a video would be good though if you can get one

I will get a video this weekend. I'm going to start lunging her before i ride so she can get her sillies out. I guess i had a bad taste for lunging before riding because of what the people at my barn do it for.

I do like purple on her. The only thing that sticks out is her bright pink vet wrap on her tail :P

I do have tons of things to work on. I looked a video my fiance has of me on his cell phone and my leg is too forward. So i have tons of stuff to work on. But a video will be up this weekend.
