As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The De Gogue addresses tension in the poll, mouth and neck. Applies poll pressure when the horse raises his head, encouraging the horse to lift, stretch and engage. Helps the horse develop the correct muscles for a rounded frame and self carriage.

    De Gogue is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only fault I would give this is that it may run a bit small. My horses are 16.1 and 16.2 with fairly long necks and I have it adjusted on the last hole.Otherwise it's a good product for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous piece of equipment. I bought this to add to my gelding's topline regimen, and it has worked fantastically. He's had a few injuries that have kept him out of work for greater than 6 months, and his topline has really suffered. Whereas he will tend to drop his head too low with just side-reins, adding a chambon/de gogue (the rings are removable so this piece can be used as both!) has helped get his head up and in and get his entire frame rounded. I actually can see how it gets him to move differently. Highly recommend, just PLEASE make sure you know how to use it first!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my trainer from Germany uses them So I bought it, because she used it when training my horse. It helped him to get those tight neck and back muscles stretched and muscle him up.Just have to make sure to keep a good forward movement, so the hind end works well.We also use it to lunge him over cavaletties

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works for smaller horses I'm not a big fan of this. Its designed great for getting the hunter frame but I don't like how the ropes are attached to the ring & there's very limited adjustability. I have a 16.2hh TB that I'm working back into shape & no matter how much graduating into a tighter frame he would go, the snaps on the rope would always get caught in his bit & not move & give & let him release all the time. The quality of this is great though, I will give it that & its a great chambon too, but as a degogue not too thrilled with the technicalities of its design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for the money. This is a fairly nice piece of training equipment for the money, its no fancy english leather, but it will get the job done for many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Bought this for my 16.1 hand warmblood and it fits perfectly. Easy to put on and not stiff so as to be uncomfortable. Well made and my horse goes well in it. A very good value.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from De Gogue Nicely made. Though it is a tad short for my 17.2 hand TB. If there were a few more inches on the rope, it would be perfect.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
