I agree also! Lunging is boring, both to the lunger and the lunge-ee lol.
I have been anti-lunging for a while, even before I started Parelli. I never viewed it as a good way to work with a horse. Never ONCE did I see a happy horse while being lunged. I've seen freaked out horses, unhappy horses, frightened horses, bored horses, but never happy horses.
Even at a two day show there are many things that you can do to get a horse all stretched out besides lunging.
