Its getting to a point where its unsafe!
So resently I've started lunging Chinga again, I haven't been able to get anyone out with me to help, nor have I picked up my yards yet. So I was trying to lunge him today, I do know how to lunge a horse because I've lunged the school horses for my instructor and a few green horses. But I'm really having trouble with Chinga. He use to be really bad, then he got good but now his gone back to bad. I guess this is because I haven't had time to lunge him lately. So I'm planning on re-training him to lunge. What he tends to do is turn in at you and then you'll eaither step round him and make him keep going and he'll just keep ducking in again, or I'll push him out and he'll run off bucking. Its getting to a point where it is unsafe, his got a rope around his legs, that he can easily fall on and when he does buck out, I have no choice but to let go of the rope otherwise I will have a hoof in my face. The other thing he does is pulls outwards, I've though about giving him a sharp pull on the rope. But for one reason or another I cannot see this working. I'm hoping to get mum to come out once every second day *as every day is nearly impossible for her with both my sisters sports. Getting her to walk the circle with while I stand in the middle giving him the cues and her slowly coming in and getting him to stay out. I tried to get video today, but it didn't really work. But I got video of the results.
So even though it looks cool, it is purly unhelpful and dangerous, in one of them you can see how close he is to me. Don't get me wrong he is an excellent horse, but I believe he is slightly scared of the lunge (we've done LOTS of desensitizing to the gear).
