Top Lunging Equipment for Horses

last update 08/07/2020

Following on from our article on lunging, here we feature top lunging equipment for horses that our team (and friends who own) have used and would recommend. The list isn’t exhaustive and there are more items to consider, however, we’ve rounded up our top ‘must-have’ items here.

Lunging is supposed to be simple, quick and effective, so before reaching for every item in the tack room consider how you can best get the job done without it taking longer than needed.

Horka Equestrian Bit Strap

Great for lunging, bitting a young horse and for leading out, the Horka detachable bit strap is a multipurpose hard wearing item that attaches to either side of the horse’s bit, with a metal hook in the middle for attaching a lunge link or lead rope.

Great to use when lunging in the bridle instead of a cavesson, also handy for when lunging before riding and full tack is needed. Makes it easy to change the horse’s rein – no re-threading over the bridle or through the bit.

One Size only.

Colours: Black, blue or hot pink

Amazon £18.92 including free delivery

Dublin Brights Lunge Whip

Who wouldn’t include a lunge whip?!! Although there’s really not that much to say here! Simple, but effective, the lunge line has a rubber grip handle and is measured at 160cm.

Ideal for angling at the shoulder to push the horse away from the handler or at the quarter to encourage forward momentum.

Colour: Lime

Amazon £12.99 including free delivery (limited stock)

LeMieux Protouch Riding Glove

The LeMieux Protouch performance riding glove is a soft and close fitting glove with genuine goat leather palm. Reinforced fingers are styled to prevent nails wearing through the ends and there are discrete colour coordinated silicone grip points for the reins to pass over.
