On the spur of the moment I joined my first lungeing clinic with Babette. It was so exciting and emotional. What I saw was a completely different way of working with horses.
Before we start looking at the details of a specific horse’s way of moving, we need to take a look at the basic gaits - walk, trot, and canter. In order to be able to evaluate the basic gaits, one must know what they normally look like – in general, but also in the...
The activation of the hind end is a very important building block that should be incorporated into our training early on.
In order to bend along the whole spine the horse needs a flexible poll which can bend to the inside.
We differentiate between three positions: forward down, working frame and collection. Suppleness is most important at first, so we usually shift between forward down and a working frame during lungeing. Advanced horses can be worked in collection on the lunge but should often get the opportunity to stretch and relax.
Q: What do I do if the correct head and body position falls apart once I increase the distance to the horse? I have been working on leading in position as per your lungeing course for some time now and it seems to be going well. However, every time I increase the...
Every horse has a natural crookedness and is therefore never fully balanced. This crookedness causes the horse to lean into the circle on one hand and move in a tilted position. Through targeted training we help our horses develop balanced shoulders.
Today I address two basic questions in my Lungeing Course:• How long should a training session be? • How often should you work on the lunge?
A good way of moving is an essential precondition for the horse to develop the necessary strength for carrying a rider. That is true for a young horse as well as a mature animal.
In order to be successful, we need to understand the difficulties our horse faces when we start training it. In the wild a horse essentially moves only in straight lines. He may turn abruptly or change direction, but he never moves continuously on a curve or even a circle.
I have always liked lungeing my horses and have tried to make it as varied as possible for them. It was a lucky coincidence that I heard about Babette and her Course in Lungeing around 4 years ago.
