Question about Lunging/Free Lunging
I was just curious, do people ever free lunge their horses in side reins, pessoa, etc? I have only ever free lunged a horse a while back when I was helping to train him with his canter leads, but we never used anything like side reins, it was just good ole free lunging in a halter. And now that Im getting more serious and getting really close to looking for a horse of my own, Im just wondering if anyone ever free lunges with just side reins? Ive only seen it with a lunge line.
Would it be dangerous? Such as, if the horse freaked out, you wouldnt have a lunge line to be able to ease the situation...no control, right?
Or would it just be weird?
Just curious :]
