Problems with lunging?
Okay, I have been working with my 3 y.o Haflinger for awhile trying to get her lunging to teach her the voice commands for walk, trot, whoa, etc. as she is going to be a driving horse. Whenever I get her lunging she will go around 2-3 laps perfectly then she either stops, turns and faces me refusing to move or takes off bucking, kicking, and galloping around me in circles(once missing kicking me in the head by only inches, that is why I have been wearing my helmet while attempted lunging and ground driving, and people think I'm crazy) She has ground driving a couple times successfully(walk on, stop, and basic steering). I can't figure it out.
