I will see how Montana reacts to having someone behind his bum, but I can't see it bothering him.
I don't have any access to a round pen, but I can use the arena, or a smaller paddock. The small paddock is uneven and kind of rocky, so I'll see which one I'll use.
I wasn't sure if you could use lunge lines, or if there were different lines to use. I'll go pick up another lunge today.
Luv2ride-when your husband was long lining his gelding, where did he have the lines go through? I can't tell by the photo.
I actually have one of the Cherry Hill books you mentioned, I will have to find it and read up on it.
I will be contacting an instructor I know and set up some lessons :)
Thanks for looking out and being concerned about safety :)
