Chinga & His Trainer ((Pictures))

Chinga had his first session with the new trainer today <3 She did really well. At the moment his staying with me and not being sold! He did really well, Maddy was super impressed with him. Maddy let me hop on him to do some undersaddle work with him after she'd worked him, she gave him a lunge as well for around half an hour and we rode so late it got dark, we could still see so it was safe. But it was absolutly amazing to be riding him and him be calm and relaxed. Not ONE buck, bolt or rear the WHOLE time! So anyway, we put Maddy's dressage saddle on him and it felt so good, we did some collection work and a few other things. Stuck with the real basics only did walk and trot. But he was so relaxed and well mannered.

We did some leading work first, she got me to get him to walk, trot on the lead and she told me I need to get him into a more forward walk and he did REALLY well! So without to much detail because Im tired I took some pictures when Maddy was lunging him, so here they are. At the moment I'm not able to lunge him because Maddy doesn't want me to confuse him.

I know nothing about lunging and I am just asking??
Is she lunging with the lung line on the bit or through the bit??
I saved and blew up a few of the pictures but because of the quality I could not definitely see.

Glad you are getting things sorted out and are giving Chinga a chance.
Hope things work out for both of you
After you have put all this into him, be sure you keep it up. The best training for a horse is time under saddle.

Kind of looks to me like the line is run through the inside ring, over the poll, and maybe clipped to the outside ring (at least from what I can see in this pic)? Not a configuration I'm used to seeing, but I can imagine some added gag action if that is the setup. Do correct me if I'm seeing things, the pics are a bit fuzzy for fine details.

Yep. I would say it's quite common. It's so you can have action on both sides of the bit and less chance of the bit sliding through the mouth if your horse yanks on it suddenly.

Thanks for the info! I don't usually lunge mine with a bit, and I usually see it done with a strap under the chin, running from bit ring to bit ring: Lunging Strap Leather and Nylon
