How to teach a young pony to lunge???
I am trying to teach Angel to lunge. For those who aren't aware quick rundown... almost 3yo filly, green broke, lots of in hand training/shows.
She doesn't know how to lunge and I would like to start lunging her to build up her top line before I start her under saddle again. Or if someone has any other suggestions for building topline let me know.
So can anyone answer these questions for me???? Pretty please biggrin.gif
Do you teach how to lunge in a round yard or open paddock? (I have a round yard but it is not fenced, just tyres which she can jump out of :S)
Do you have one or two people to train them to lunge and where are the people?
What equipment do you use?
What commands do you use? (Angel doesn't seem to respond to voice commands such as walk, trot, whoa etc)
Any other tips/hints/suggestions?
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate opinions and help!
