lungeing

  1. Horse Training
    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...
  2. Horse Training
    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...

    I have a two year old, gelding. He's welsh x arab and is standing at roughly 13hh. I bought him over a year ago and he was vetted, and we was told he had a stage three heart murmur. The vets monitored it, and two months before his second birthday they ask if we could lunge him to help regulate...

    So, in the past I've free lunged my mare with a lunge whip and she'd do pretty well (being responsive, coming in when asked of her then licking and chewing), although I've noticed that she tends to pin her ears when asked to go out, change direction, plus bucks and kicks up her heels a lot -...
  5. Horse Training
    Hello! So just a little background. I take lessons regularly (hunter/jumper) and I leased a horse for a few months and I was asked by a few owners who saw me working with the leased horse (he was a mess!) to work with their out of shape horses. One of the horses I work with is a 17 year old...

    My 5yo Standardbred is normally great to lunge, he even knows how to free lunge. But since I haven't been riding for three weeks (its been raining non stop so the paddock was full of puddles and it was really muddy) he refuses to lunge at all. The moment he gets out far enough to trot Nero...
  7. Horse Training
    Hi all- yesterday I had a saddle fitter come out to ensure my saddle was fitting correctly. I have recently purchased a 10 year old 16hh untracked thoroughbred mare. Previously I had been riding this same horse for a solid 4 years. We mainly plot around hunter style, do some jumps, nothing...

    Someone please help me!! I have a 13.3hh, 15 year old Dales pony. Ive had her for just under 2 years. I know her very well and would say she is quite marish, can be very stroppy and if she doesn't want to do something she will let you know about it! Before me, she was owned by a lady who...
  9. Horse Training
    My horse is a 12yo QH who I've owned for the last two years. I had a family emergency earlier this year, so I asked someone to look after him and his pasture buddy. I resumed riding and caring for him three weeks ago, though I can only ride bareback, due to a child ruining my saddle. :(...
  10. Dressage
    Ok, short shorty short version! Horse had a MONSTER DEMON SATANIC abscess and started bucking at the canter and her gaits were all messed up even on the lunge line. We got it fixed but she had to be on stall rest for a very long time. All the progress we made in western pleasure training (just...
  11. Horse Training
    Hello there :) Of all the times I`ve watched horses being ridden, and especially lunged, they have they're noses pointed in towards the center of the circle and they're body is curved. How do I get my mare to do this?! X) When I ride her in a circle, I put my right leg on her and...

    I didn't know if someone already started a thread about this but.. I know a little bit about Clinton Anderson Fundamentals and I can't afford his training tools, I would like to know how to make a lunging whip myself. Anyone have any ideas?
  13. Horse Pictures
    I lunged Grace and Johnny(the little troll:lol:) yesterday and I thought I would share some pics. This was only the second time I have lunged Grace, but she was pretty good. She tried to turn in at me amd she spooked alot in the beginning, but we got the hang of it. The first one is just a...
