Most standardbreds have no clue how to lunge when they are off the track. mine didnt.
Lunging isnt mandatory, i simply reccomend it because its a good chance for them to balance themselves naturally in the new gait without having to carry the rider, thus allowing them to build up those natural muscles, then when you get on they have that nice warm up and can feel more comfortable
