    I suggested that bc I know a horse who would randomly fall down..then get right back up.lol.in the title of ur thread it said "and he's down..." so I figured he fell down alot. That's what my trainer did to see if he had it.i think he ended up having it too. I didnt know much about it but I looked at that pae I suggested and I learned a few things.it seems very possible that that's what he had..im not sure where about you live but it could be very likely here considering we have lots of oppossums. Good luck with your horse though! :)

    I believe its because the horse is working on a continues circle, so the horse doesn’t get a break from the circle. This means the horse has to use more muscles then riding in a straight line. You can do circles in riding but from what I know you don’t sit there and ride circles for your whole ride.

    Unless you ride the same speed you lunge.

    Okay I just read the response above and that makes sense. A very good farrier told me once that he can tell how much a person I lunging thier horse because of the amount of lameness they have. He said that going in endless circles is the absolute worse thing for a horses feet and legs.

    this is why I trail ride often and don't lope circles in an arena all the time.it gets boring.it takes the fun out of riding too. This is a reason I also don't like to lunge horses in a small roundepn and try not to do it unless I absolutely have to. Good point. I never knew that. I only don't do it because its boring and useless...but youve given me a new outlook on it
