THE ART OF LUNGING
Help your horse to stay healthy, fit and in shape with Lunging Training
Stretching and Strengthening Training for Improved Performance in ALL Disciplines
Have you ever struggled with your horse being crooked and stiff?
Do you wish your horse would work more forward downward, and be more soft on the bit?
We all want our horse to relax and stretch while also building up the top line and needed muscles.
Would you know how to lunge correctly if you saw that your horse was weak in the hind end?
What if your main goal was to help them step into and under themselves to gain balance?
Stiffness and tension in the back of the horse is one of the most common issues. Just like us humans, horses need to stretch and lengthen and cross-train from riding.
You want your horse to be a strong, well-muscled riding companion.
You don’t want them to be weak in the hind end,
over on the shoulder,
or unbalanced through their transitions.
You want to use cross-training exercises to help them get to their best strength.
Learn how to use Lunging Training to encourage relaxation, stretching and healthy rhythm.

Review from other horse lovers, just like you
I love what I learned about the Lauffer/Vienna reins. My Haflinger has already started to stretch down as he walks and a little at the trot EVEN under saddle!
Lacy, Masterclass Graduate
I had had quite a bit of lunging experience as well as training – for vaulting. But never for conditioning and I really liked what I learned.
