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'!).

A Chambon is excellent for horses who tend to be tense and hollow through the back. A Chambon teaches the horse to yield at the poll and stretch his head and neck down and forward. An excellent training aid for young horses but requires an experienced trainer to use properly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from chambon The chambon I purchased has helped immensely with my young horse. It is teaching her to use and relax her back but is not harsh in any way.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after first use. So, I have been able to use this even though it has broken... but is has been with some MacGyver style rigging. There are these small pins that hold the rope in place on either side. With the smallest amount of pressure they pop out. Not a BAD thing. If you have hours to crawl around on your hands and knees in the arena looking for them when they pop out. I get it, the set up is made so that with a little too much pressure, the rope is released and the horse is free... but my guy is 4 and doesn't mind the chambon... and just testing the pressure with his head, the pins popped out and were lost. Also, I had to add another 10 holes in the girth strap because the cord is so long and even though my guy is 16.3, he was still able to walk around like a giraffe if he wanted to. With the rigging my trainer and I have done, my horse can comfortably lunge around in a beautiful training level stretch. But I would say this was a piece of equipment that was constructed great in theory, but in reality, is poorly conceptualized.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely product High quality construction with supple but durable leather crown piece. The only training aid I use consistently and I can see the results in my horse's topline! Great for my 23 year old former grand prix jumper who loves to carry himself with a hollow back. Perfect for those horses that are difficult to encourage to go long and low for strength-building.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I bought this product to help my horse get muscle and balance. We only use it for lunging, but I have ridden him in it. It's a great product because it is quality material, and well made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from In the past I've used the deGogue and Chambon quite a bit and was very happy with it. I finally decided to get a Chambon again. It fits my nearly 17h horse well enough and he works well in it. The quality of the material is good. I especially like the cords. However, I would have preferred that the cords can be detached from the poll piece. This one does not allow you to do so. That limits me in using the Chambon just for warm up, especially since the leather strap that attaches to the girth also has to be slipped off rather than buckled on and off. Overall a fine value for he money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool if used correctly. Very well made and easy to use. A must have tool but should only be used by those who understand how to use it. Not for every horse but great for those that respond well to poll pressure.
