1. The worst piece of horsemanship is striking a horse to inflict pain; all horses want to be dealt with in the absence of violence, pain and demand.
2. The act of single-line lungeing can compromise the horse’s anatomy and tends to create inflammation throughout the skeletal system, double-line lungeing should be used to reduce the sensitivity increasing cooperation and increasing understanding.

4. Never feed from the hand or the human body it will teach your horse to bite.
