Watch as a seasoned horseback rider demonstrates how to free lunge a horse at a reverse canter in this free online video about horseback riding. Expert: Kell…
you just made my day.
in my experience with free lunging, all communication should be done through body language-vocal commands are used more for regular lunging, ground driving, leading, and riding when you start to do that
I never said that ? o.O
That horse is lame, pretty, but lame
1. You use the whip as an extension of your arm, or like a leg aid if you were riding.
2. Try whipping yourself as hard as you use the whip on your horse. I did this. It does not hurt. You cannot feel it. Because you do not touch the horse with the whip.
3. Occasionally I have to use the rope end on my very stubborn pony, but 90% of the time he doesn’t react to it, so I don’t see how he can possibly be in pain.
wow some people are realy dumb , its called a LUNGEING WHIP for a reason its used to LUNG a horse theres nothing wrong with what shes doing all she has to do is show it to the horse ,
Yea whips are painful for us, but say you were actually riding with a dressage whip and you do use it on the horse it DOES NOT hurt them. Unless used in a incorrect manner.
oh no no no, the whip is not used to actually hit the horse it’s not even a “punishment” tool. Think of it this way, when on a horse’s back you have aids or signals you can send the horse through eyes, hands, legs and seat. On the ground those aids are replaced by the lunge “whip” in a manner of speaking. It’s sort of a misleading title for a tool meant for communication because your first guess is that it’s used to punish the horse in some way. It’s just a signaling method. No horses are hit
the whip isnt for whipping them you stupid idiots. Its to reinforce leg aids when not on their back!
the whip NEVER actually comes in contact with a horse! It’s obvious you aren’t experienced in lunging…
lol, it’s not cruel. You don’t actually HIT the horse. A lunging whip is used for signals and in case the horse runs at you then you hold it out so they’ll run into it.
You don’t ride, do you?
