Lungeing and Long-Reining, published in association with The British Horse Society, is a step-by-step guide to training, exercising and suppling horses from the ground, written by Britain's leading exponent of the art.
The book begins with advice on handling untrained youngsters and works through a logical training progression, culminating in advanced dressage movements.
Straightforward guidance is given on:Training foals and young horsesLungeing equipment and techniqueIntroducing long-reins and early lateral workBacking and riding young horsesLungeing over poles and fencesAdvanced long-reining; including cantering, rein-back, shoulder-in, travers, half pirouettes, half-pass, renvers, canter half-pass, canter pirouettes and tempi flying changes.
Piaffe and passage Olympic dressage rider and trainer Jennie Loriston-Clarke has broken and schooled countless dressage and jumping horses, and initially uses lungeing and long-reining to establish the horse's basic education and create mutual respect between horse and handler. The knowledge she has gained over the years while working with novices and older 'difficult' horses sent for retraining, is distilled in this book into simple instructions, so that others can avoid making costly mistakes when training their horses.
The goal throughout is to produce a horse that is confident, keen and happy in his work - which should be the aim of every trainer.
Illustrated with specially commissioned sequence photographs, this book will prove particularly valuable in the early training of young horses, as well as in improving or retraining older horses, and refining dressage movements in advance horses.

Often lunging is rushed through in the trainer s eagerness to get the horse going under saddle, which surely is the ultimate aim when a horse is being broken in. In this beautifully illustrated book Lorison-Clarke shows how lunging and long reining can be used to firstly establish the horse s basic education, but also how to use this with older, difficult horses. Loriston-Clarke's knowledge, and willingness to share this, shines through in the text of this book. It is written in an easy to read, no nonsense style that will make this book one that can be dipped into over and over again.
The book is a must read for anyone training a young and/or inexperienced horse, I wish I'd have known a lot of the safety techniques when re-schooling an ex-racehorse we had to stay last Summer. Since reading I have a deeper understanding of lungeing - why we do what we do - and feel more confident and effective in my training. I have added a new string to my bow in the form of long reining...something I have only ever done once before and I am thoroughly enjoying playing with the technique in the safe confines of the school and as I gain experience I am looking forward to practising the more advanced moves to improve our suppleness. -- Jessica Challenor
