This is a video designed to help teach you how to lunge/longe/loenge your horse to prepare him to be ridden. The contemporary modes of lunging are generally …
This is not lunging – this is “leading the horse in a circle while bopping
him on the back of the neck.”
The horse is about to have a person sitting on its backk :L Im sure it
doesnt mine some stirrups tapping on his sides!
Minor mistakes in horsemanship are made everyday, what she’s doing is
nothing, yes the reins should be secure, but other than that. The sturrips
are hardly more than a lil annoying to the horse. The carrot stick she uses
a lil more than necessary is probably more troubling to the horse. But I’m
not in her place so who knows what’s necessary. She’s not abusing the horse
so lay off… I perfer the natrual horsemanship way, but this seems to work
just fine for a warmup
She probably has the stirrups down to get the horse used to them moving
about. In theory your are supposed to run them up before lunging, but this
means that many horses freak out if you lose a stirrup and the iron starts
to bang against their sides.
I’m wondering why did she reward him with a treat when he swung his hips
away? Wouldn’t that be condoning the action?
In response to concerns about the use of stirrups in this situation: Lauren
was not trying to longe Montana. She was using longing to prepare him for
being ridden. This is the reason the stirrups were left down. Montana has
the opportunity to lean how it feels to have things touching his side in a
safe situation. It is likely that he will one day have a branch, a foot, or
something else touch his side with much more force than the stirrups did in
this video. We want him to be prepared for that
And pompeed, you are just rude. Plain and simple.
Aww, good first video of you and your horse
Geeze u guys have to tone down the critique! They did a great job. It might
be a different form of lunging than I am used to in tx. But they knew what
they were talking about. And know what they are doing. So stop nitpicking.
this is great!!!! yeah i love your horse!!!1 but whats wrong with her or
his sides??? or is that markings
arn’t you supposed to bring up the stirrups before lunging her so that they
dont bang against her sides?
try loosening the bit what i mean by that is adjusting the headstall to
wear the bit is just sitting in the horses mouth and no wrinkles
@willyf11 she just should’ve considered putting the stirrups up to keep
from irritating and distracting the horse while trying to train it.
@ThunderEquus He did stop, and that’s what she wanted. By rewarding it, he
knows that ‘yes, I do need to stop when she does that.’ The next time they
stop and he’s no rewarded, he may realize he needs to stop differently.
looks kinda like bitemarks, but adorable horse !
yer hes got white pit behide the sadle
lol you sound like a news person XD hah montana is a pretty horse. i have a
14hh pony and she does good in the ring but when you take her into the
feild or anything she spooks a whole lot. i cant even ride her there now.
since you sound like u know bout horses can u help me a bit? like can u
tell me some methods to do
NEVER lunge with the stirrups unsecured, especially english stirrups which
are heavy enough to crack your horse’s ribs when they bounce at the trot.
that is not even correct!
To short of a lonuge line
Lovely red roan. i Suggest some grooming tho! (: however, well done
He looks just like my pony
@summamarchant What’s wrong with your keyboard that you cannot type
Question, why are you walking with the horse? The method I use calls what
the girl is doing circle driving. Plus when the horse whips its butt away
it’s a sign of respect that the horse is focused and watching you which is
always what you want when getting a horse to stop while being lunged.
this is scary….thats the exact situation i have! my horse looks exactly
like that, he’s eight years old and has only done the basic walk and trot!!
so i can totally relate to this.I reallllllly want to teach him how to
canter!! i try on the line but he doesnt know how!! so its hard. but this
really helps!! thanks!
Oh, dear. How not to longe a horse. Any horse.
Why is your horse so green if it was broken at 3 and is now 8?? Clearly
isnt ridden much then…
you should fasten the reins before lunging.
Its really bothering me that the stirrups are down and the reins are just
@Pompeed What do you see that is problematic?
It would indeed be more safe to have the reins put up. It was not necessary
in this situation with this horse, but it is a good practice. About the
stick: Lauren did keep the stick up when she did not need to. It takes time
to learn the coordination of all the skills. We are not attempting to show
the perfect way to do anything. Instead, it is mean as an insight into the
@CIEStudies This does help a bit. I have always lunged before but now I
know why it is a good idea to keep the stirrups down! Thanks for the help
He is a red roan. There is nothing wrong with his skin.
the horse isn’t uncomfortable, he is just looking for direction and showing
respect when he turned to face you when he stopped.
it would of been alot safer if u twisted the reins as wen the horse is
movin the reins cud slip over his head and cause an serious accident….
maybe u should just twist the reins but gd work though x
