Lunging is an integral part of our training system, it is the second stage and is the time that we commence the locomotion whilst maintaining a more relaxed posture. It is the first time we get to look at the natural balance of the horse while moving. The natural balance is the balance that the horse travels in naturally without any influence form us. This can be longitudinal, lateral or diagonal balance.
It is also the time that we get to assess the muscular development of the horses, expose them to different parts of the arena and expose them to the environment around the arena. All the while allowing them to learn how to organize their bodies and develop strength in a way that is conducive with carrying a rider with beauty.
