Working a horse on a lunge line can be very supportive when working with balance, connection and building a relationship. It is possible to use lunging as a venue for supportive exercises that show your horse to follow your focus, energy and intent.
But some lunging techniques develop predator-prey relationships which can be detrimental to riding. In this case, your horse can quickly learn to ignore you altogether. Learn to avoid the pitfalls of lunging and develop the skills to use lunging as a positive, supportive exercise to your riding.
