Long Lining Question

I want to do some work with my pony Long Lining, but I don't have a circingle to use. How do you safely use a saddle to long line? Like in the video below.. I don't know where the outside rein is supposed to loop through.

You can start with an English saddle and run the lines through the stirrups, loose. FIRST, however you need to get your horse accostumed to the lines, so you might want to do some reading first.
I got this book last Christmas, and it's really helping me train.

I have seen long lining done with an English saddle, btw, so it's isn't a bad question. =D

You can also lunge a horse in just a halter or bridle, without a surcingle or a saddle. It's the most basic form, with no extra pressure put on the horse. I like to do all of my saddle training, including form and balance- from the horse's back. Not with him circling around me.

If you do want to use a saddle though, Corporal gave good advice.o

She's fine with the lines, and I want her to use her body effectively without me in the way.
