Hi Lisa. Sam here. So sorry for posting too many questions. This is the last question for today. I Would like to know why lunge lines are specially manufactured with cotton for lunging horses. Are lead ropes not suitable for lunging?

Answer
Lunge lines are longer than a regular lead line.  They can be made from different materials, from cotton to nylon to leather- a lot depends on what region you are in and what is commonly available and used.  A benefit of cotton is that if it is pulled through your hand quickly, it is not as likely to cause rope burn.
