Lunging Horses by Babette Teschen

Cavesson Pepe

Do you want your horse to…

  • be motivated and look forward to working with you?

  • move with suppleness and energy on the lunge and under saddle?
  • find his inner and outer balance?
  • become a calm and competent partner for all disciplines?

Recommended by german leading specialist journals and experts!

Then my Starter Lunging Course Bundle is just the right thing for you!

A lack of knowledge and missing know-how lead to many ugly pictures when horses get lunged. In order to move well, the horse must learn something it cannot do naturally: go correctly on a circular track. Unfortunately, many horses never get trained to do just that.

The Starter Lunging Course will show you how to train your horse to move soundly on the lunge and build up strength and fitness.

  • ❗👨‍🔬 If you already have advanced knowledge, you can book modules 2-6 individually. Modules 4 & 6 are particularly popular. There you will learn the beginnings of liberty work and lateral movements.


Please don’t ever put a lunge line onto a bit!

Lunging on a bit is unfortunately a widespread abuse.

Along with the fact that you cannot give an a sensible aid with a lungeline through a bit to tell the horse how it should bend it also breaks the basic rule that a horse’s mouth is sacred.

I strongly oppose the use of side reins or draw reins on a bit as well. Moving well on a circle is only possible when the horse bends correctly.

I am Babette Teschen

I have taught international days-long clinics for the Lunging Course for many years. I wrote the Lunging Course in 2008, supported by my friend and business partner Tania Konnerth, and Lisa Kittler.

More about me here.

Why I wrote the course?

As a horse trainer, I have been confronted with horses’ problems all the time: sometimes more or less resistance, sometimes an uneven rhythm, sometimes very little motivation or spirit. In some cases the problems were even more serious: pain, frustration, disobedience – which could lead to bucking, rearing, or otherwise “difficult” horses.

Lunging has proved to be essential and helpful for my work. The best thing I could do for the health and sound mind of my equine partner was lunging according to biomechanic principles. The horse was then able to do as I asked in a healthy way. Lunging, the way I teach it, will also bring about a harmonious relationship. It emphasizes togetherness, understanding, and patience and forgoes pressure, force or coercive means.


  • Good lunging is the best way to prepare the young horse physically and psychologically for its job as a riding horse.
  • Good lunging is the prerequisite for any horse to become a sound and strong riding horse. This is true not just for pleasure horses, but especially also for sport horses whose owners dream of a career in dressage or jumping.
  • Good lunging is, for me, the best way to help problem horses to become cooperative once again. It is quite unbelievable what changes I have been able to bring about with horses that had been given up as incurable by their owners.

„Anyone can lunge“

Many people think so. “The horse just runs around in a circle”. Sadly, that is not enough. I believe that many horse people don’t know

  • That good lunging is not so easy.
  • That bad lunging can really hurt a horse.
  • That good lunging can be part of a healthy training routine and can therefore solve many problems along the way.

In order to move effectively and in a sound way on the lunge, the horse must learn to go forward in good balance, with a bend along the whole spine, and active hindquarters.

Look at the change in only 8 weeks!

Did you know?

  • That a circular track is a really difficult challenge for a horse?
  • That horses need systematic training for moving in a circle, because they just cannot do it naturally?
  • That so-called resistance (on the lunge and under saddle) is not an expression of ill will, but simply of being overwhelmed and unable to do so?
  • That you can improve your horse’s health significantly through lunging, but also do great harm with bad lunging?
  • That proper lunging can prepare your horse perfectly for any work from the saddle?
  • That many riding problems can be easily solved on the lunge?

Here are two examples to illustrate this

In order to move effectively and in a sound way on the lunge the horse must learn to go forward in good balance, with a bend along the whole spine, and active hindquarters.

Here are three example exercises, which are thoroughly explained in the Course in Lunging
