  1. The short answer is it depends on how you lunge.

    Lunging a horse can build muscle. In addition to building muscle, lungeing is a valuable training tool for both horses and riders. Horses develop better balance and show more relaxed gaits when they are lunged regularly.

    Lungeing can also help with flexibility, as it strengthens the back legs especially well. Lunging is a valuable form of exercise for horses because it simulates their natural gait on soft footing and helps keep muscles supple by working those that have been neglected by being tight all winter or from being inactive time off from an injury or lameness.
