    Irrelevant and illogical.

    An intelligent person representing the superior species simply doesn't take unnecessary chances to be 'facepalmed'.

    Just because the opportunity for injury exists doesn't mean you disregard taking basic safety measures.

    Mercedes IMO (no offence intended) there con proably be many habits and ways to lunging but iv trained both of my horses and both have diferent ways of learning I had to use different methods. And I find it a bit amusing that you always advise people to get books im not being funny but everything I have learned about horses, I have learned by reading their body language and my trainers help. (i say you advise people as you have done it more than once one of those times to me! Yes you may be a profesional at lunging im not saying you don't know what your talking about but to the question that was originaly asked, your answer has been IMO too much info.

    Anything to do with horses can be dangerous but it can be made safer with the use of good practices.

    The above scenerio actually happened and could have been prevented with a little more care. Lucky the person was not seriously hurt, but could have been.

    I do not always advise people to get books, HOWEVER, for most people on this board (seeing as they find it impossible to communicate their questions and thoughts to their instructors and trainers, and/or find it impossible to acquire a mentor), a book, written by a riding master with illustrations is a FAR BETTER resource than taking the advice of nameless, faceless strangers, none of whom have seen the interaction of posters and their horses, and most of whom haven't got a clue what they are doing.

    There is no such thing as too much information in this regard. One can not make an informed decision based on a handful of tidbits. The amount of information being dispensed here (in general) is just enough to get people hurt.

    Discussion is great. What Mercedes is saying that it seems that UNDERSTRANDING is lacking,

    I agree for if there WAS an understanding (between student and trainer)some questions being asked would have been asked in a totally different manner.

    Did you miss reading comprehension class?

    ...for most people on this board (seeing as they find it impossible to communicate their questions and thoughts to their instructors and trainers, and/or find it impossible to acquire a mentor)...

    Maybe I'll just have you translate the English language into the English language from now on.
