Im aware that this is long riening which i have done before, just not with him as im still trying to get him used to lunging, he is a completly different to anything ive had before, which is why i didnt understand why he was rearing up, and running in to be with me.

Lunging him today went really really well, soon as i upped the anti he went straight out and behaved himself.
Anyone know where i can get a cheap pessoa for a pony ??

When horses come into my space on the lunge, I take one really big step forward (lunge... ha) at the horse, and stomp my foot when I do it. I usually point the whip directly at the shoulder and run it into them, or I'll crack it really loudly as I lunge in. Obviously don't lunge below a rearing horses feet, but its generally effective.
