    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 I've 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 ??

    Ebay?

    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.
