Lunging Training Aid
Modeled off the Pessoa training aid, this is a revolutionary lunging aid for horses that strengthens the back, stretches the top line and gentle encourages the horse to work correctly. The training aid should be used for frequent short sessions for best effect, and encourages the horse to work rather than using force.
An important difference between this training aid and other schooling aids is that it does not create a rigidly fixed contact between the horse's mouth and girth. Schooling aids that allow this to happen are notorious for creating an over bent outline with the horse working too much on its forehand and too little from behind. This aid works to free the back muscles so that the horse can use them for balance, impulsion and support for both himself and the rider's weight. This training tool employs a sympathetic system of ropes and pulleys which prevents rigidity and doesn't force collection.
Useful for fit horses to maintain their muscle tone, it also helps youngsters begin their work in the right shape.
