Here is a short video of Norman schooling himself. Undulating ground adds to fitness and balance, so if you do not have a sand school, good old-fashioned grass is fine. Just check the footing is not slippery first. Working without a lunge line, in a secure place, helps you to develop communication with your body language and voice.
Lungeing, Long-reining and In-hand work by Claire Lilley
This book explains how to school your horse from the ground, starting with fundamental techniques and providing progressive exercises to work through. It explains the importance of stretching work, and how to establish a correct outline, and the best methods for building strength, suppleness and quality movement. Remedial work is also included to overcome problems such as crookedness, lack of balance, stiffness, etc.
It describes in detail how to lunge, long- rein, double-lunge and school in-hand, from a basic level to advanced. Throughout, common problems are discussed and solutions offered.
Also covered are the use of training aids (where necessary), schooling over ground poles and cavalletti, and jumping the horse on the lunge.
Also available Claire’s Training Programme Lungeing DVD.
