Done correctly, lunging is a stretching and lengthening exercise for the horse. Lunging helps to stretch the horses’ long back muscles, energizing their hindquarters and developing musculature for higher levels of self-carriage. Additionally, lungeing is a variety to riding and can allow the horse a bit of free play.
Lunge lessons are also a wonderful tool for new riders and advanced riders as well to work on improving their seat.
Long-lining is a wonderful exercise for horses at all stages of development. It provides education, relaxation, and variety to the horse’s work.
Long-lining enables the trainer to teach forward movement, steering, and straightness – all without the added weight and influence that a rider can bring into the equation. It allows horses to understand aids in simple form, and can be a useful tool when starting young horses under saddle.
