At our September 2017 General Meeting we enjoyed an educational lungeing demonstration by local Dressage rider, instructor, and horse show judge, Ken Anderson. While lungeing a mare belonging to one of our members, he spoke about the reasons and benefits of lungeing as well as where it can be done, the equipment and attire necessary, and important safety rules. He reminded us that lungeing is a good activity for all horses but that it should not be overdone. More than three 20 minute sessions per week could cause injury to some horses. He provided a useful outline to those of us lucky enough to attend which includes the USDF (United States Dressage Federation) Lungeing Guidelines, helpful books, and stores where equipment can be obtained. Luckily you can get a copy of the outline below!
