    Why is a lungeline bad? Just curious, I've never heard of it being bad for the spine.

    I'd be interested in reading what you've read that says that.....

    We have a local fellow here, Jonathan Field, who I highly respect. I've done a couple of his clinics and the relationship with my horse's has improved after each one. That's the key for me is to see results.

    I also take lessons from a young lady who is a certified level 1 coach. She's young but has a natural talent.

    I also like Mark Rashid, Cherry Hill, for her common sense advise. I've read books by Tom Dorrance, John Lyons and a few others, but have never had the opportunity to see them.

    Single line lungeing puts the horse out of balance with the weight of the line and they compensate by modifying their gate. They end up with their head out and butt in towards you and it puts stress on their spine. If you go to Monty Roberts site he has some great free videos and there is one that explains it and he demonstrates exactly what it does to the horse.

    I agree with Hunter65 - Monty Roberts has a great description of lunging on his website. It is not that he is against lunging - he explains that lunging without side reins (or not long-lining) creates imbalanced bend when the horse travels during the lunging. He wants people to obtain proper bend when they lunge.

    Monty Roberts pretty much changed the way I view horses. I love the idea of speaking their language and having a partnership with my horse. I have also been impressed with Clint Anderson, John Lyons, Richard Shrake. These trainers seem to be great for starting horses. Once that has been established, I have found that Sally Swift is the queen of teaching the balanced seat. Many times, training issues come from the rider's seat.

    I LOVE clinton anderson! I also like russel dilday (who is a rein/cow horse trainer in cali) I like Al Dunning. There are others that I like but those are my favorite!

    Lungeline, roundpen, bits, saddles and all the such...........all/any training/teaching tools you use if used inproper damage.
    The key is to learn to use them properly!

    Good and Bad to everything in this world, just keep seeking how to become better and learn to use tools better to accomplish your needs!

    Craig Cameron and Chris Cox are my favorites. I like them because I come from a similar backgrounds, and I understand the direct style, I see and understand their goals better than Cliinton Anderson.

    I also respect Clinton Anderson and Curt Pate. I have read Curt Pate's book and I really like it. But I have never seen him at a clinic, hopefully I will.

    Clinton Anderson.
    I agree about the lunge line. I do it without in a round pen, or I attach the line to a surcingle
