Why do you need to lunge him? I think lunging is really overdone. If you're starting a colt or if you need to use a surcingle to help gain collection then lunging is a good tool but otherwise I see no reason to do it. It's not great for your horse to go around and around in circles. It puts alot of pressure on thier legs since they are anatomically built to go straight.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
