Lungeing

Does anyone know if there is a book that talks about Lungeing your horse, be it free or with the lunge line? I'm very good with horses when riding but I need to broaden my horizons a little and perfect my teaching from the ground skills.

Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!

Yea, I was thinking that of myself the other day too. I got a lunge line and whip recently and I'm attempting to move my horse completely out of the round pen. Free lunging in the pen is beginning to develop bad habits in my horse (as I noticed when I lunged him on the line) but it's also killed all of my skills too.

I think the best way is to learn by doing. I've seen a big improvement in my horse over the last 2 weeks on the line. He was really great today.

theres heaps of books out there that can help... just check your local riding store...

But I found the best way to learn was to do and be shown... it helped a lot having people who new what they were talking about there...

LIFE IS HORSE RIDING! The rest is just details...

Wait - I'm confused...Do you know how to lunge? Or is it that the horse that your working with doesn't?
If you don't know how to lunge, or if your horse doesn't - books can only take you so far. I suggest (if you are in the above situation) that you should get help from a trainer.
I hope I don't sound rude! I'm not trying to judge you, at all.

I know how to lunge and have done it before, but when I get to a horse that doesn't quite know how I am not sure what to do. Therefore if a horse acts up or has never lunged before, I am not sure of what I need to do in order to keep control. Does that clear it up a little?
