Long lining

I'd like some advice on long lining. I was thinking of starting to long line my horse instead of just lunging him day after day.

I've never long lined before but have see it done a lot. I'd just like to make it as safe for my horse (and me) as possible.

So any advice on how to introduce him to the long lines and the set up. I have a surcingle that I can use and I need to buy an extra line.

I'm going to begin long lining my horse soon. No further advice than this, for now -- in order to get him ready make sure he is comfortable with lines flipping around and touching his sides, bum, neck, legs.
