My 10-year-old Thoroughbred cross is terrified of lungeing. I suspect he's had bad experiences lungeing, because, althoug he does seem to understand what's expected of him, he gets too antsy and nervous to concentrate, even to the point of sweating up. Lungeing usually ends in him bolting. For that reason, I've stopped doing it.
However, there are times when I would like to lunge him before riding, or be able to take a lunge lesson. Any advice on restarting him on the lunge? Is it worth it?
