Can a horse trot properly on a (roughly) 7-8 ft lungeline? I'm teaching my 6 year old TN Walker gelding Spirit to lunge and my friend told me that my lungeline was too short and that he couldn't trot properly. He trotted but he keeps like leaning on the lungeline (maybe not leaning but pulling) and I don't know if that is a problem because the lungelines too short or it's completely different.
How can I stop him from leaning or pulling on the lungeline when trotting (He's fine when walking).
How do I get him to rack and trot seperately on the lungeline or should I just be satisfied with either? Sometimes he racks on it, but mostly he trots.
If anyone could answer any of these questions I'd be very happy :) <3 Thanks!!!
