Okay so today and usually when I lunge my Thoroughbred stallion he takes a long time to start getting into being lunged which is okay as he is lunged once a week as im too busy to do it more. So he gets going but he will only trot around about 4 circles then just stop and walk back into me. I don't know what it is I am doing and I got my friend to watch and see if I was doing anything different and I couldn't notice anything. I lunge him in an open arena in the bush so I don't know if that has anything to do with it but it makes it really hard for me to lunge him and I don't have time to ride him everyweek so lunging just keeps him a bit fit and going...
If anyone has any advice I would love it! He is good when he is lunged in a round room as the people down the road have one I use sometimes but he is usually just lunged in an open field or arena and he always has this problem. I use a whip as an aid but don't whip him with it, its just like an extension of my arm to keep him going round.
Thankyou!! And sorry its so long!!
