    Default Difference between a "driving surcingle" and a "lunging surcingle?"

    What is the difference? Can you lunge with a "driving" surcingle?

    A longing surcingle will have rings both on top and on the sides. I am assuming that a driving surcingle will just have terrets...but I will be interested to see what others say.

    A terret is the ring the rein runs through on a driving surcingle. While you can longe with a driving surcingle, a longing surcingle gives you a lot more flexibility and is really much better suited for the job.
