Question Turning in, pinning ears while lunging

I just read the thread about the horse that resisted lunging, but my horse only just recently began pinning his ears, and charging me. He's been really good at lunging until now. I usually use a rope halter. Sometime I have him under saddle and lunge him. We have not had a problem until just recently. And it's only when we lunge to the left. Lunging to the right is no problem.

Hi jeana,first rule out soreness.make sure he's not hurting anywhere.then free lunge him a few times without the lunge line.if he comes into your space,then jump at him,holler and throw your arms up.make it look like you are bigger than him and make him get back out on the rail,if you are in a round pen.

How is he going to the left under saddle?

Thanks, I will work with him this afternoon and see how he reacts. Sometimes I just lunge him with the halter; other time with saddle and halter or bridle. He does seem to be okay when I'm on him, it's just the lunging. Usually he's a pretty mild-mannered horse. I'm going to have someone watch him while I'm working with him to see if they notice anything. Thanks again for the feedback. Jean
