However - she pulls like CRAZY. I'm used to having sensitive faced Arabs, who really don't do a lot of leaning into the halter. Jynx is a Paint and teaching me a whole new way, hehe!
I tried lunging with a normal halter, and my hand almost fell off from the pressure. So I switched to her rope halter which helped a tiny bit, but only when I constantly jangle at the line which is mostly causing her to flip her head up, and move very off balance with her front end swung in, hind end swinging out. It's like she just has no sensitivity - she's not trying to run away, she'll go at a slow and steady trot, but leaning against the halter as hard as she can.
I really don't want to graduate to using a bit just yet, as she's not broke and I don't want to be putting that sort of pressure on her mouth before she learns how to lunge nicely.
