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.

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.
