    lunging horses?

    I've been working a lot more lately and I lunge my horses everyday now for the past week. My gelding has coughed once or twice during lunging. And my other gelding will sneeze a little bit after 30 minutes after he lowers his head. Are these normal? Its not dusty at all in the arena.

    Does the cougher have any lung issues that you know of? Maybe you should talk to the vet about him, but lunging isn't necessarily the best for horses, it can stress them physically, and cause soundness issues when over used. I would only lunge them once, maybe twice a week.
