About this video
Laura lunges her new 4 year old, Stepdance (known as Step), in preparation for riding him. She explains why she does this and shows the Bechtolsheimer's preferred equipment for lungeing, which is both simple and unusual! Laura talks about how she uses body language, why moving around the arena with the horse is important and how being on the lunge has helped Step go from 'trotting for a 10' (he was trained to do this for the sales in Germany, where they recently bought him) to being able to just chill!


Fiona Price, Horse Hero Founder 12 Jul 2011 With my warmblood who likes to go long and low, I have found it encourages him to be more up and in a good shape, ironically!
gillian reay 12 Jul 2011 My horse likes to go long and low and I am having to work on getting him up in front. I like the Kavalcade which encourages looseness but will this exacerbate his liking for working long and low?
Hammer 18 Jan 2011 Laua; I really enjoyed your lunge video with Step. You have every right to fall for him as he is not only handsome but very springy and elastice. Gorgeous, can't wait to see more.
Fiona Price, Horse Hero Founder 23 Oct 2010 Hi Yvonne, the rein is availabe in the Horse Hero Shop.
Yvonne Bennett 23 Oct 2010 Just started to use horse hero and found your video very helpful as i have new youngster out of His Highness and have just started working him. Where can you get the rein you use, instead of side reins, from?
