I almost never lunge unless there is a problem. When I lunge its only to be able to assess the horse from the ground, or for young horses, build up muscle so they can balance themselves properly. Lunging is known to be bad for the legs, especially in excess. Free lunging on the other hand is fine and in my opinion, a lot better.
