Long lining is another great in-hand technique, where the horse is equipped with a saddle or surcingle, bridle, and a pair of long “reins” which are held by a person on the ground, who walks either walks on the side of the horse or stands in the middle of a circle, similar to when lunging a horse.
Long lining is a versatile ground work exercise, as you can practise, the horses balance and its steering, half-halts and halts, see the direct effect your communication cues, posture and energy are having on your horse and make corrections more easily than when riding. You can also work on lateral work, easily move your horse around the arena and even use ground poles, cavalettis or small jumps. d even small jumps.
Most importantly, when long lining, you can give a precise release of your cues, very closely mimicking the riding release. This is critical because horses learn from the release of pressure.
