(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.
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.
