Just looking for some advice! Im new to horses and have never lunged a horse before I got mine back in December. We have been doing pretty good with each other except for some transitions. She is really good about starting in a walk and transitioning to a trot and then to a canter. She is even good about coming back down to a trot, but I always seem to have trouble getting her to go back down to a walk.
I am working with a trainer and she suggests giving a short yank on the line, but it really doesnt help at all and I don't want to sit there yanking on the line all the time. I was just wondering if anybody maybe had any ideas and if you know of a good video to watch that would maybe help me understand what to do more.
We have been getting better at it everytime and its only been a few times that we have lunged. And like I said she is good about moving back down into a trot and going into a canter. I have gotten her to get back down into a walk, but I don't want to be yanking on the lungeline all the time. It will probably continue to get better everytime as we are just starting to figure each other out, both on the ground and under saddle, but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!
