I agree with candandy. It's used for trail riding (especially overnight), but I've never seen or heard it to be used as "round pen". The long lead line makes much safer "round pen" somewhere in field or in ring (if one is afraid of horse to pull out free). ibedoc, could you, please, post links to any trainer using that as a round pen or suggesting it?
