Smile Kalypso being lunged today

Before every lesson,Kalypso has to be lunged(during the winter that is). So today i had a lesson. Which was good. Before that i let my trainer lunge kalypso. So took some videos of him being crazy.. only in the beginning hes crazy.. then he settles down.

I am filming.. and my training is lunging him. Please ignore the people talking in the background.

Let me know what you think...

I didn't like how she jerked him around in the last video. Don't know the horse though, of course.
But I think it was pretty unnecessary. Easier to get a horse to come down when you're not yelling at him too. I find If I lower my voice and ask for a "whoa" in a calm, soothing voice the horse is more likely to come down. When I'm using the tone of voice she'd using I'm asking for the horse to GIT up. Not come down.

Just my observations.
Lovely looking horse.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

Aww, someone's a little spunky. He's cute. My horse just did that first bucking farting canter thing with me yesterday out trail riding. It made for a lovely ride. (smile/eye roll) I posted a story about it called Ode to March on the story forum if you need a laugh.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
