Lounging? Nope. Longing? Still no... what then?

Okay - so this is kind of silly, but I just wanted to clarify this for everyone (including myself). I am quite sure there are people on this site who will appreciate this tidbit as much as I do :) It really drives me batty when I see people referring to working/training your horse on a long rope from the ground as "lounging", "longing", "longeing", etc... haha. I myself have even struggled with proper spelling... and until today did not know what the "proper" spelling was. Here ya go, folks.

Source: USDF, and the German National Equestrian Federation.

Proper term? LUNGEING. There is an "e" in there, which makes no sense when analyzed with the knowledge I learned in elementary school, but, whatever.

Learn it. Use it. Pass it on. LUNGEING. Lungeing. Lungeing.

No, really!

Thanks!

It's a lunge line, not a lung (like what'cha breathe with!) line, so its always made sense to me. Yup, according to elementary school it's not proper but the English language is full of fun things like this haha.

I like to think of him lounging rather than loungeing around on the sofa like the kids. And he is not longing for anything. That's at least how I remember it.

I was always really confused too. Sometimes I would say "lounging", but then again I have a really lazy horse! :) Lungeing! Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that's how I spelled it. Lunging but ok, now with an e. Totally goes against what we were taught in school! Thanks a lot English teacher!! No wonder I flunked it 3 times! Now I know people do call it long lining. I'm not sure which discipline it is but I've heard of that. But thanks for the heads up! I'm going to go lounge now!
