The Side Effects of Lungeing
By Jean Luc Cornille
"A gifted horse will lead a good rider to victory.
A great rider will give to the horse the gift of soundness.”
Jean Luc Cornille
Even the most benign medication has side effects. Aspirin for instance, may upset one's stomach. Curiously, while the advantages of lungeing are often promoted, the negative effects are rarely addressed. It is evidently considered safer to have a horse bucking with excessive energy at the end of the lunge line, than under saddle. The damages created by extended lungeing sessions, however, are severe and definitively need to be exposed.
