In basic terms you are just leading the horse on a longer lead. Lunging is not a word that should be used with anything Parelli.
There is no such thing as lateral lunging. There is something called working in hand or driving or just plain fooling around with the horse.
Just because you have a lead on the horse and are moving it sideways you are not lunging but attempting work in hand.
