Can a join up be done on a lunge line??

If so, I can't seem to find any videos on the subject.
I could have swore there was one in this section somewhere. :(

Any help would be appreciated. :)

IMO, I don't think so. With that line you have a constant pull on the horses head. Without a line, the horse has to make the decision to turn to you not turn because he feels the pull of the line.

I agree with Nevada. It should be the horses decision to want to join up. I will try and think of another way of join up. But yeah, without a small area to work with its nearly impossible for join up.

Meh, our pasture is huge. I guess I will just have to be patient for a round pen to come my way. I am so frustrated with our lack of area to work, I have been lunging in the back yard! Hehe.

Gotta do what you can with what you have. I know how that feels. Have you done any Natural Horsemanship?

I am learning some as I go.
I follow a lot of Chris Irwin's stuff, I like how he uses his core to move the horse, etc. I have had stellar luck with it lunging so far.
I'm still on the hunt for a saddle to fit my big monster arab. :)

I lunge Dancer with a rope halter and lead line combo. When he's trotting and I ask for a whoa he will stop and decide to come to me. I never pull or tug to make him come to me.

I think you could, just because they are on the line doesnt mean you have to pull on it to get them to you. I don't really see why not ? I havent studied join up a lot, but I've done it a few times with my horses.

You might want to look at that. I don't want a horse to come to me automatically. Only if I invited him to. I might want to stop the horse on the lunge and that's it; STOP. If he comes in to you, he is making a decision outside of you. That makes me wonder how much of the lunging is him doing what you want and how much is just automatic.

you might start asking him to stop, and stay stopped. Teaching your horse to stop, some distance from you and be comfortable just standing some distance form you, YET still keeping an eye on you for the next direction from you, is a good excersize.
