Techniques of line driving
Line driving is one of the most valuable techniques for training horses. It can be used to train horses too young to ride, to retrain spoiled horses, or to teach others new movements. Young horses can be taught to move forward, stop, back, stand, turn, and other preliminary obedience steps by line driving. If these maneuvers have been taught on the longe line, so much the better. They can be advanced to sharp turns. Horses also can be introduced to strange objects they might shy from under saddle.
