How to Train Your Horse to Lunge : How to Hold a Whip While Free Lunging a Horse


Hi, I’m Kelli and this is Covey and on behalf
of Expert Village, we are going to show you my options and techniques on how to free lunge
your horse. So when you are in this kind of setting and you are trying to free lunge your
horse, your horse may not be to willing to want to go out there and do any work. As you
can see, my horse does not want to do anything. She wants to stand here in the middle with
me. So we are going to have to use a whip. So I’m just going to really slowly pick up
this whip; I don’t want to startle her in any way. I’m going to get behind her at her
shoulder and I’m just going to get the whip behind her. I’m just going to cluck really
gently and I’m going to make her go out on the rail. So I’m going to make sure I hold
my whip in my left hand cause she is going in the right direction. I would switch around
and hold it in my right hand when she was going to the left. I’m just going to follow
her around. I’m going to stay at her shoulder and keep my whip really nice and low because
I just want her to kind of putt around right now. That is what happens if you get a little
bit too far off them with the whip. They don’t want to turn around and go the other way.
So you want to make sure you stay right in the middle of your horse right at the shoulder
and you are holding your whip. You also want to make sure you keep your whip pointing out
them so they would stay at the rail of the round pen to keep them from coming in the
center. So that is where you want to hold your whip when you free lunge your horse.

  1. Just curious but Why do you have a big post in the middle of the round pen? Isn't that a little dangerous? It looks like there is a bunch of junk on the ground in there as well.
