For the Horse: Long Lining Videos

If you enjoyed reading the first part of our two part series on Long Lining in July’s issue of AHW, you’re going to love watching the five video clips of John Lambert walking us through how to long line. In the first video, John walks us through how to place the surcingle. After correctly placing the surcingle, video two shows us proper crupper positioning. In video three, John demonstrates how the crupper should look under the tail before adjusting the back strap. Now, your horse is ready to long line, and in video four, John walks us through proper long lining technique and how to attach your long lines. And once the long lines are attached, video five provides techniques for walking, turning, and stopping. 

Before getting into long lining, you must make sure the surcingle is placed properly so that the horse is comfortable. John Lambert walks us through how to place the surcingle.

After correctly placing the surcingle, you must place a crupper under the horse’s tail. The crupper keeps the surcingle from pulling forward when you are long lining. John Lambert shows us how to place the crupper under the tail.

After you place the crupper, you will need to make sure the tail relaxes down before adjusting the back strap. You want it to be snug, but not tight. John Lambert demonstrates.

Now, your horse is ready to long line. John Lambert walks us through proper long lining technique and how to attach your long lines, starting with your horse at the wall.

Long lines are attached, and John Lambert demonstrates how to get your horse walking, turning, and stopping.

Stay tuned for Part 2 videos, coming soon.

Quote of the Month 2: September 2017

“Litigina was out in a pasture and as I walked up she just emerged from the fog to greet me. It was like some sort of mystical dream. Ever since that day 29 years ago, she has been the source of inspiration and beauty in my love for the Arabian horse.”

— Rob and Lynda Pelliccia, The Dowager Club

Quote of the Month 1: September 2017

“I guess my friend was right because I came out of that office the owner of the colt. I really don’t think cash had much to do with the sale. I think Roger just liked this cocky kid right out of World War II who thought his Army money could give him the stallion of his dreams.”

— Dick Lodwick on the purchase of Rafden, Wit and Wisdom
