SAY NO TO TO LUNGING /LONGEING!

Running a horse in circles on a long line, is what is called Lunging or sometimes also called Longeing. It is done to "exercise" the horse, and for a host of other reasons that including to wear off any freshness before riding as shown below......

Unfortunately horses hate Lunging, and we have seen too many ruined horses due to this unnecessary practice, so we strongly recommend that you never Lunge your horse.....as there are way more fun and stimulating ways to exercise and connect with your Equine friend than Lunging.....
















There is NOT 1 SINGLE HORSE who likes to go around and around like this, with no point apart from running, plus it doesn't have any benefits to the horse as it certainly doesn't make him any braver, smarter or more co-operative .......and there are far more fun ways to be with horses than this........

And a lot of the more right brained type horses (spooky personality types) will get faster and faster and more and more stressed through it, while the more left brained horses, who are the thinkers and not afraid of the whip or the human, will often become badly behaved and can buck, or constantly keep stopping or refuse to go etc...which just shows their displeasure and BOREDOM at being lunged!

However we don't ever want you to just get on your horse....so we advise that you check out our pages as to help you with some ideas as to what you can do to replace Lunging....
