I have always had troubles with lunging my horse. I have had him for 5 years and I have never succesfully lunged him myself. My trainer has done it before but it's been probably 2 years. I don't have a trainer now because I kind of got out of riding for a while. I just him back from a neighbor who didn't do anything with him even though she told me she would. She had him for about 5 months. Anyways, every time I try to lunge him he acts like i'm "disengaging his hindquarters" and turns his head towards me which is something i've done for years, so he knows how to do that. I got him to walk correctly to the right, but it took a little while and every once in a while he would stop and come towards me. I just couldn't get him to walk to the left. I have watched some youtube videos but I just don't know what i'm doing wrong. I don't know how to keep him from moving his back legs while his front legs stand still. I don't have a round pen or a lunge whip/dressage whip. I wasn't able to get the whip today, but i'm nervous about getting one because i've never had one or used one before. The only thing I had on him was his halter and a 15 ft lunge line. Any answers are appreciated. Thanks!
