Lunge Line with a
 
bungee cord this by where it gets attached to the halter. What is this supposed to do?

i don't quite understand. Do you mean to have a lunge line and before it clips to the halter, have a bungee cord?

tiffanyp1980 03-20-2008 09:27 PM

yup thats exactly what I mean lol

Probably to have a little more "give" than nylon; if your horse pulls against the lunge, it gives a little bit rather than just snapping at his mouth.

I don't like those bungee line thingees. My last horse, Buddy, had one that my friend used.....I was basically leasing him.....apparently he didn't like being tied and he spooked, breaking the cord. I'm suprised he wasn't cut because the bungee smacked him hard in the face. :roll:

Not sure what it is you are talking about. Would you be able to post some photos?

Usually when you have a "softer" more giving material in tack it is to give it some give. Make it more comfortable for the horse.

I would to see some photos if you can.

This is just like the one I am talking about except not as long and no stud chian.

Probably so if the horse pulls it just stretches and not rips your arm out of socket.
