I LOVE lunge lessons. Love love love them. I think they are so good for the first few lessons, or even well into your lesson progress. Finding your seat is the most important thing, steering can come later. Learn balance so that you don't need to rely on your reins, or your stirrups. My favorite lessons were lunge line with no stirrups or no reins, or both, doing arm circles and what not. I would definitely ask for those before you get technical. Also these kinds of lessons will naturally help to better your over all position later on, when you do
incorporate stirrups and reins and steering and the like.
