Watch as a seasoned horseback rider demonstrates how to stop and catch a horse on a lunge line in this free online video about horseback riding. Expert: Kell…
@horseluver758 I agree with you, but if the horse is still hyper or
something you should lunge for a longer time:)
My horse doesnt seem to get the fact that he has to move around me..any
Yes, better to create folds in the line ( like an accordion or fan) so if
the horse does pull you can simply drop some or the entire line to the
my horse was the same, and I just started training her to lunge. I actually
got a helper, to get walk with her around me. I also used body language,
and I held the whip to encourage her to go. I wont let her come into me,
untill I stop her and say ‘come here” I think you really have to encourage
your horse to move.
saddleoneup must have someother breed that take them 15 years to train. a
caveson would not hold some of the yearling i’ve started out. You must have
a halter on it so it does not get away or you will have troubles,and yes
sometime a chain too,sometime not a lot.this person as never started a
young horse out.he or she feeds her horse everday treat and kisses his
Does anyone know how to train a horse to stop the first time they’re on a
never hold the line with one hand. when the horse stops, do not walk
towards her. the horse whoule be walking willingly towards you and you
should reward. you are so incompetent.
my horse is pretty clingy and when i try to get him away he doesnt really
get away what should i do?
I’m sorry to say but that didn’t teach anything! You just disturbed what
you were doing with your experienced horse… not how to stop!
You DO NOT wrap the line around you hand. This horse isn’t like some, and
the horses I lunge before I ride are VERY headstrong. They will brake your
hand if it is wrapped. Someone at my barn’s hand was broken by the calmest
lesson horse we have because of this. Very much a saftey hazard.
Oh my…..safety issues…looped lunge line, chain on the horse, saggy
lunge line when working. It’s one thing to show a horse that is obviously
accustomed to lunging….never does show how to start one that has never
done it. Needs way more info and to show from start to working, how to fix
problems (horse runs off, turns in, turns on forehand keeping butt away but
not moving forward etc.)
That is not true Horseluver758. If a horse starts to walk towards you the
are entering your personal space and can be a sign of disrespect. Most
horses are taught to stay out of your space. You should never allow your
horse to walk up to you you walk to the horse. That is how my horse is
trained and many other horses.
this woman is irritating lol
i have a horse that is 26 years old i think he has never been lunged
because hell do a half of one then stop and come to me its only when i
really have to keep me moveing and stay by his tummy that he will do really
good but the last time i saw a horse getting lunged was a little more then
7 years ago but i just wanted to know what i can do for him i don’t have a
lunging wip i just have 2 lead rodes and swing the end a little
Let him walk up to you. When he walks up to you, he is telling you that he
respects you, trust you, and depends on you. Dont ever wlak up to him, you
always want him to walk up to you.
Keep pressing 5 .. Your welcome
He can walk up to you…
Okay, i have a question when i am done lunging my horse, he always tries to
walk up to me… should i let him walk up to me? or should i walk to him?
you shouldn’t lunge a horse to blow off steam even if they are high strung.
Lunging is for getting your horse to listen to you before you ride. Or to
get the horses attention.
You have a lot to learn Mam…!!
These people at expert villiage should go to a few more clinics before they
decide to teach people how to do things, Most people in the horse business
are know it alls.depending on your training style BEASTGAL and BILL,
personally i say whoa have my horse stop and turn into me, i’ll also turn
my back on younger horses such as yearlings and have them walk up to me and
they are usually gumming and chomping thats when you can tell a horse is
showing its submission. Better to lunge ecess energy.
@katieharraway Actually the purpose of longing a horse is to train & warm
them up/get the fresh off of them………a walker is for excersizing them.
I don’t think she does. Like i said. Turn your horse out so he can blow off
steam and play. Not when you are trying to work with them.
that mare did NOT even break a sweat! Really?
@Beastgal1765 Sometimes that can be the case. But as a horse walks towards
you, if his head is low and submissive, then he is well behaved. If he
comes with his head up high and somewhat fast approaching you are right.
To those who wonder why you’d lunge to “blow off steam”…some horses need
it. Say you are going to ride your horse (in a lesson, hacking etc) but
they, for whatever reason, are excessively and possibly dangerously
energetic…what do you do? You lunge them to get rid of some of that
the horse is lame,good showmanship but saddleoneup does’nt notice that
can’t see that what type of horses do they have??
you are doing it wery wery well. i saw the worst lunging . she should learn
from you greetings Eva
you should let the horse go to your as you invite him into your space. Its
a way to bond with your horse and teaches the horse that he is aloud in
your space when invited. I do that to by boy as he has trust issues, was a
full wild horse and then broken in crap and treated crap so invitting him
into my space gives him confidence, respect and trust. Every PROPER horse
rider knows this and should practise this!
I love it when everyone thinks they’re experts lol You should all listen to
wow i just relised her horse looks exactally lke mine but she has a darker
liver chesnut and to back white socks lol random i love that horse
heh, heres something about “collecting the line” dont wrap it in circles
around your hand, even thought its easier and a hard habit to break, butif
you do, if your horse were to spook, and run away, your hand will getr
tanked, dislocated or “shivers” mangled, and you will be dragged behind, i
would suggest switching it back and forth in your hand, and then if a horse
were to spook, it wouldnt be capable of hurting your hand.
@101topper a round pen if you have one i guess
she was lunging correctly.. she didnt show how to start off lunging which
was a shame… the whole point of lunging is to exercise them and it gets
most the energy out of them be4 u ride . and having a headcollor and lunge
rein is fine and u have to drop your whip and say and stand and they stand
where they are then u gather it up so u dont get tangled good vid bt could
of told you how to start lunging as well xx
why are you winding the line around your hand? expert village? youd fail if
you did that in an exam!!!
lol thats what my horse does. he walks up to me
that’s one of the first things i learned. Well said. This lady needs some
