Exclamation Jumping While Being Lunged?

I recently began lunging my 3 horses. My TN had not problem with saddle and without. My QH had no problems as well. My other QH on the other hand always jumps the fence. He Always jumpes it when he is infront of the gait too. He knows our gait doesnt lock but he insist on jumping over it. We always have to run and go to get him and drag him back to the barn. This is a HUGE property and its not fun and very tiring. Any help?

Does he jump out while he's on the line?

He tries to eat a little bit. When I use the whip, he is fine. Once I get him up to a canter he jumps once he gets around to the gait.

You could try pulling his head toward you when he gets around to the gate, or you could build up the gate

I can't contol his head while he is being lunged that is the point of lunging.

I have found something I am going to try. I am trying to drive him soon. Once I get ropes for it. I hope this works. If not I will be open to suggestions.

Ok this post doesnt make ANY since to me at all. If it is on a lunge line why can't you pull its head in...I am really confused.

Are you free lunging him or lunging him on a line. The point of lunging is to exercise your horse without having to ride him. It sounds like your one horse needs to be lunged on a lunge line until he learns to respect you and can be free lunged.

Also (didn't remember it until after the edit option was gone)...how short is your round pen fence that he can jump it?! All the round pens I've been in have been at least 5ft high, some closer to 5.5ft.

I am free lunging him and I do not have a round pen. I am lunging in my arena. My arena is very small and all the other horses do fine in it.
