Is there a special cue to get your horse to free lunge?
I am just curious as the other day when I went around to the horses, if when I go to catch them or pat thme they walk away I chase them. Well I did this the other day and I think I figured out how to free lunge...
Well Buzz walked away from me so I chased him, I was aiming at his butt and I don't really know what happened but he started doing circles around me.
His ear was on me, I ws kinda freaked out so I stopped doing what ever I was doing and was like and whoa and he stopped and just stood.
So I walked over to him and said good boy. Haha
I'm not to sure if I should try it again as it was pure accident, but is it possible that Buzz was trained to do that, or would he of learnt it from being lunged since I have had him?
It was just amazing as he was in a 7 acre paddock, his pony friend was in there as well, he just started circling me and listening.
Sorry or my rambling I am just amazed.
Usually when I chase him away he does a couple of laps around the paddock then comes to me, or he does a few strides of trot then turns around and comes back
