omg...

Okay...so today I was lunging my horse in an open field. She was doing good she slipped a few times as usual and bucked and reared and that was that. I continued to trot her around she started to get lazy so I clucked for her to keep up the collected trot and she slipped again this time she bucked and reared then got the lunge line stuck under her back legs and kept rearing, etc. she pulled me and now my right hand if swollen, it felt like she pulled or fractured something but anyways she only bucks/rears when I lunge her. I've seen her slip while under saddle and she dint do anything like that. Whats her problem??

First off, did you go to the doctor for your hand?

Maybe something hurts her when she's being lunged. I would have a vet come out and check her over to make sure she's ok.

Does she only do it in one direction or both?

Weanling
My new girl does this and I think that she realizes that no one is on her so she can have fun. I don't appreciate this too much so we are working on our behavior on the flat and she is learning to really listen alot better. I use natural horsemanship with her and she seems to be catching on, although she does still buck she doesn't do it as much.

My hand is only a bit swollen now it hurt alot more before but the pain has since been at a low. I only have lunged her to the left so that's when she's done it the most. She has been checked out and she does have a tad bit of trush but im treating it. She always slips with her back legs, she's actually a pretty clumsy girl, she trips over alot of things. But im starting to wonder if its something that the vet didnt catch...

yea im afraid that im going to get kicked or something. She only does it when she slips at the trot or when I cluck for her to keep a collected trot or to canter. So basically its anything faster then a canter when she does this. When I saw her lunged before I bought her I saw her canter and she did none of this.

Maybe its the footing that you're lunging her on.

The ground was solid when I was scoping it out before I lunged her

Just a guess, but usually when you're on your horse you're helping to balance him/her, and when they're on the lunge they have to do circles that they normally wouldn't while just being a horse, so they have to figure out balancing things for themselves, and some horses do get frusterated with it... or they could just be used to not getting away with anything while you're in the saddle, so they figure they can just do whatever they want.

How's your hand?

My hands okay but I was thinking and maybe could it be that she hasnt been really "worked" in a long time since she was starved. But then again when I saw her canter on a lunge line at her old place she did great... im puzzled
