I can only assume that this horse either doesn't do the former well, so his vice is that he doesn't lunge or that he does the latter one, entirely too well.
Maura, I know the difference between the two lungings.
I was meaning that they should be WAY more specific when they say that his only vice is lunging because I do know people that thing horses that can do the first lunging are a waste of time (the arab/saddlebred gelding I had for a little while was 8-years-old and had absolutely NO CLUE how to lunge, free or on a line...I had to teach him because his owners thought that every horse should be the kind you can just hop on and ride whenever...not a good idea with a hot-headed arab gelding who got away with everything).

That one made me tired reading it!
