& a lunging problem..

Training Aids -
Your views on the following....

Market Harborough
Harbridge

Also, can you jump in a Harbridge?

Lunging....In canter she pulls agaisnt me and is very unbalanced and hard to control. I started to let out the lunge line, and she must of been on a 20m circle - probably more - but still pulled outwards. How can I stop her doing this??

With the training aids, I think someone's already pointed you at Sustainable Dressage - it is written from a purist classical perspective, but she does provide a logical explanation of why gadgets aren't always everything the manufacturers claim them to be.... What problems are you trying to solve?

As for the lunging problem, you've already stated the problem - she's unbalanced. The question is why. How old is she? How much work has she done? Does she pull more or less if she is lunged in tack? Is it worse on either rein? Have you had her checked out by a physio / chiro / whatever recently?

Is she balanced in trot on the lunge? If watched from outside the circle, is she staying vertical or does she motorbike? Can you change the length of stride in trot without changing the rhythm?

If she's barely managing to trot in balance on the lunge, I'd do more work on her basic suppleness which should both improve the trot and help with the canter - canter on a 20m circle is hard work for a stiff or novice horse. If the trot is absolutely fine it would suggest there may be a problem with her back / pelvis.

Sorry - lots and lots of questions rather than suggestions, but more information would help people to give you more pertinent advice :)
