Yes Cherie is right but do you know how to get the horse to think and not react? That is not exactly easy to explain.
If you are working with a reactive horse, you will want to use the confines of the round pen or you might be getting drug all over the place trying to lunge on a line.
So he reacts in the round pen. That is where being you need to be a leader to him. Show him that he doesnt need to fear the pen.
If you know Clinton Anderson's method, most horses start out being reactive. He uses the round pen to get them to think instead. Check out his lunging for respect videos. If you know his method, most horses stop being over reactive in the first day. They are not perfect after one day but there is a big change.
