    Hi everyone! I'm not nearly as active on here as I should be. But I am in need of assistance. A few years ago, I fell off my mare and got a really bad concussion, since then, I've been unable to ride. Unable to even will myself to get up into the saddle. Every time I feel confident, I stand up...

    Hi All, I’ve recently bought my first horse (been riding for a longgg time though). She’s only a baby (5 years) and hasnt done a lot. I’ve been trying to lunge her to get her used to my voice and make sure she’s in the right head space for me to get on but she absolutely refuses to send out...

    Hello everyone! :cowboy: So basically I have a 14 year old mare whom I bought back in March, and I've lunged her probably 10 times since then. The first two or three times she was impeccable! She fell into each command perfectly. Then ever since then, I get her on the lunge line and she...

    Hi - I had a few bad falls with numerous broken bones so I bought a quieter mare. Had her about 5 months and everything was great. 2 days ago she bucked on two occasions with me during the one ride. The second time i heard a stick break first. She has never spooked at anything (including...

    I might start lungeing some TWHs pretty soon here but I need some input from y'all. I've seen people here say you shouldn't lunge gaited horses because it will mess up their gait, some say they should be lunged in large circles to avoid that, and some say they can be lunged like any other horse...

    I just recently brought home a 16 year old barrel horse. The previous owners were beginners and did not know how to lunge him therefor he has not been lunged in a year or more. I am new as well. I have been around horses and rode quite a bit, but I do not know very much about lunging and how to...

    Hello everybody! I have a tiny little problem with my recently bought Hispanoarabian mare, I hope I'm writing it in the correct thread... Every time I lunge her, as long as it's to her good side, which is right, she works perfectly. We change the side and that's when the problem appears... In...

    I have a six yr old gh that I just got and I don't think he knows how to lunge at all. I want to be able to lunge him in new places, check his movements, and release extra energy when it is needed. Any videos, tips or methods or particular trainers would be helpful on how to introduce a horse...

    I know that most horses buck during lunging, either from energy, excitement or whatever. But when my gelding bucks, he pins his ears, curls and shakes his head and kicks Towards me; sometimes moving his butt to completely face me before kicking plenty of dirt at me. He does this both on the line...

    Today I tried to lunge charlie, and I have been for the past few days and he will go around the circle like one or twice if im lucky then turn in to face me and stop. I turn him out again and crack the whip when he seems like hes about to stop but he just ignores it and turns into come towards...

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for advice on lunging my 6 year old QH mare. I am new to the horse world and have had her for almost 3 months. In that time we've stayed at a walk or trot. Now that I'm a little bit more educated we've started cantering. She does fine when I'm riding her so I know she...

    So I just bought the loveliest little thoroughbred cross. Never raced, blue ribbons all the time, great price. I'm in love with her, except for one thing. She walks forward and even breaks into a trot when I try to mount her. I'll move the mounting block up to her side quietly, adjust the...

    I have a 3 year old paint horse who is very reluctant to canter in the arena. He goes alright clockwise, but fights it and jigs toward the center when asked to go counter clockwise. Once he does begin to canter he breaks down and trips on the curves and wants to cut them tight. I know he's...

    I own an 8 year old, off-the-track TB gelding, Prince, who I've had for about a year and a half now. He's very willing to learn and intelligent, but he doesn't always understand what he's supposed to do. I'm sure some of this is my fault, considering I'm no professional and I'm learning everyday...

    I have been lunging my new quarter horse mare. She is an ex-polo horse and an ex-barrel racer. She is very sensitive, but does fine lunging at the walk and trot. However, no matter how lightly/ softly I ask for the canter on the lunge, she bolts/ rears/ bucks/ backs and won't canter. Any...

    Now that "Apollo" has gained a bit of weight, I have started training him. He has already been ridden but I am working on his topline right now. I have started lunging him in loose elastic side reins and he is progressing quickly! Now tell me this, how does an underweight off the track pacer...
