This is the simplest and most effective lunging aid we have ever come across and is extremely popular.
Innovative German design which helps educate the horse to work long and low, encouraging the horse to lift the back and shoulders.
Encourages stretching in the forward -downward posture on the lunge.
For Horses who resent working in a Pessoa or who require a different form of encouragement to work long and low.
Does not act directly on the hock action like other lunge training aids that can produce too much of an ‘on the forehand’ action. Working only the front of the horse encourages more freedom for the horse to learn how to engage its back muscles to work long and low into an even contact.
The soft rope of this model is gentle against the sensitive areas of the horse’s body and only applies pressure when the horse hollows through the topline. Thereby the horse is rewarded when he softens and goes correctly, effectively encouraging the horse to work correctly. This lunging aid is easy to fit and use – a wonderfully simple piece of equipment that is a definite asset around the yard.
No surcingle needed.
1.Place the lunging aid centrally over the back behind the withers
2.Lead both ends from the back through the front legs, threading one end through the ring of the other end, and attach them to the bit rings, making sure that the aid is long enough to allow the horse full freedom to stretch his head and neck
3.Usage length is individually adjustable on both sides for a precise fit
Extremely effective and highly recommended.
