Common lunging problems
Do you think lunging is boring?
I often hear people say “I think lunging is boring” . Somehow I understand where that comes from! Because if you don’t know exactly how to do it, lunging is just ‘letting your horse run in circles’.
In this E-learning course I am going to help you make lunging more fun because you will understand it better!
Do you always have your lunge & whip in a knot?
A basic condition for lunging is to have control over your materials. Your lunge is similar to your reins . When you have the reins in a knot, refined riding becomes tricky too! In this course I will teach you some tips & tricks on how to roll up your lunge and how to keep your whip the best.
Does your horse listen badly to the lunge?
You also have to make agreements with your horse on the lunge. Of course because of safety but without appointments you can never get one building good training. Simply because your horse does not know what you want from him.
Many people find this difficult, under the saddle most horses know the aids and riders take lessons to become even better at finetuning. But with lunging, this stays a bit behind. In this course you will find more information about how to learn aids and what the right aids are.
