This course will develop your technique when lungeing horses, with the session covering:
- The theoretical principles of lunging and fitting the equipment needed
- Lunging practice including developed position, handling and technique
- Managing how to effectively deal with a range of horses.
This course will be delivered using a mixture of theory and practice on the College Yard. A must for all horse owners to develop your knowledge!
You will need to wear sensible yard clothing with appropriate yard footwear. We would advise you to bring extra clothing, such as waterproofs, warm jackets or a cooler top with sleeves if the weather looks as though it could be unpredictable.
For safety reasons we ask that you wear gloves and a hat for the lungeing activities and no jewellery, apart from a watch and wedding ring, is worn. It is also advised for safety reasons that hair of shoulder length or longer is tied back and a hairnet is worn. In addition, hoodies are not permitted. Please ensure your hat has been correctly fitted and meets the current safety standards, available at: 2023-bhs-approvals-and-bhs-assessments-hat-guide-v1.pdf
