Long-lining your horse offers many benefits. It fills the gap between lungeing/roundpen work and initial rides; prepares the horse for rider’s aids by the use of long lines simulating leg and hand aids; teaches the horse to accept contact; and teaches the horse to bend, to move forward, change direction, halt, reinback, and perform lateral work. Watch a long-lining demonstration by Sandi.
