Longing a horse
I've never longed a horse and was curious to know how to do it...I've seen it done, but when I had my own horse our trainer or my mom would longe the horse. I'm now going to be leasing a quarter horse mare and when I got on her yesterday she had a TON of energy, so I know I should longe her before I get on her again. Any help would be greatly appreciated I don't want to experiment on her and make her head shy!
I would ask your mom for a few lessons. There are all sorts of books on lunging and ground driving, but there's only so much theory can do for you; body language is so important that you'll learn faster by doing it under supervision.
Here's a video with a trained horse, if you want to watch: http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-...schooled-horse
Thanks! I really like that video as well as the others on it, what a useful website!
Glad you enjoyed, I like those videos myself; they are well written and well produced :)
