I have my 12 year old mare, And while she is not the youngest she is still very fiery. (Not a bad thing, I prefer NOT to have a dead broke horse. What's the fun in that?) The reason she was for sale when I found her was because when she was last lunged she charged viciously! Teeth bared and all.
I have no NEED to lunge her we work quite a bit in the arena and on trails alike with no problem. Since I have owned her I have not lunged her. It is unimportant to me, How ever I am interested in teaching her to do it properly just for the heck of it in some of our free time.
So my question is how can we start from scratch in training her to lunge on the line? Or better yet correct the bad habits she already knows?
Any type of advice is much appreciated!
Don't get me wrong she is not by any means a bad horse, And behavior wise [Other than this lunge business] is amazing so please don't misinterpret her for a dangerous animal.
