While longeing the horse should learn the following exercises:

•            Basic transitions such as walk-trot, trot-canter

•            Speeding up and slowing down within a gait

•            Stop

•            Transitions such as stop-trot, canter-walk

•            Changing the lead through the circle (by making a S over the middle)

Longe frequently with the saddle. When the horse has mastered all these exercises and gained better fitness and muscles, the riding training can then begin.

    Should the circle be 20m, or just big enough to reach the horse with the lunging whip?
    It is difficult to assess in the videos but some circles look to be 10m in the early training.
