Isn't it bad enough the slaughter of the english language in general by the clue, and careless, but the folks on here are generally fairly bright, and obviously well educated.
So, why would any horse person want to teach their horses to LUNGE around them????? Lunging is bad, lunging is out of control horsey madness. Dangerous. To longe a horse is to have him travel around his trainer while on a longe line, in a well controlled manner. This is good.
A horse who does not spook at flapping things on the trail or elsewhere is un-FAZED. He may be going through a spooky PHASE while young, but when he's over all that silliness later, nothing should faze him at all, hopefully.
urm your from america most of you so you prononce things and says things differently and spell them differently
like color- here it is colour
and say centre line you spelt it center
recognise is another you say it recognize
different cultures countries lol and the correct word is lunge line and you lunge your horse- or its lungeing your horse
there's nothing wrong with 'I rode my horse today'.
Indeed, I rode two horses yesterday, my own horses. I have ridden them many times over the years. And I will ride at least one of them today after work.
But when I ride, I will not be 'flatting' or 'clinicking' or 'lessoning.' Gack. I might well be hacking, though. On the horse, that is. The air quality is good in these parts today, so neither the horse nor I will likely engage in respiratory hacking.
If this has come up already, I apologize. But when speaking of the parentage of an animal, the proper word for the female parent is 'dam', not 'damn'. Unless, of course, the second is being used in a descriptive manner prior to the first spelling.

Since this thread is still going, what's up with calling fetlocks (I presume) "ankles"? There are even "ankle boots" for sale! Craziness. And inaccurate to boot.
Edited to add: More general spelling things that amuse and mildly irritate me are using "deep seeded" instead of "deep seated", "in the throws of" vs "in the throes of" and "mute" point (as already mentioned).
