We feed 2 or 3 regular pony cubes which are pencil width and approx. 2cm long, or you can also use small pieces of apple or carrot. Anything small enough so that you can get on with the training instead of waiting for your horse to finish chewing!
In the beginning we actually use ‘sailing rope’ which feels nice and silky in your hand. The length is approx 4m which is shorter than a conventional lunge line – less chance of getting in a tangle! Later on we switch to a long lunge line as we then be working on a big 20m circle.
We use a longer ‘in-hand’ dressage whip which is 140cm rather than a lunge whip, as it feels like an extension of your arm – like a ‘magic wand’. We don’t tend to use a lunge whip as they are awkward to handle and the long lash can get in a tangle.
No. For the non-ridden programs we use a simple flat head collar or bridle with a snaffle bit, and for the ridden programs your usual tack will be fine, so long as everything fits properly.
