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 3.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a "one size fits all" My trainer suggested that the de gogue might assist my 8 yr old clyde/tb cross in his training. I was excited to receive it. Unfortunately, it did not fit - needs to be longer...or the piece from the girth needs to extend more. Quality is great - leather was quite nice. Price is very attractive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality for the price I bought this for my 17hh TB who has trouble with engaging his back and understanding the action I am asking for. I wanted an aid that did not require the use of a surcingle, so side reins were out, and I am not too comfortable with using draw reins. For the price, I am impressed with the quality of the leather and overall piece. Nearly every piece is adjustable and it is possible to turn it into a chambon.However, beware if your horse is tall and/or has a long neck. I do have to use this with alterations to the yoke to ensure that it is long enough for my boy and is not restricting him. This is easily achieved by the use of either baling twine (the ever-popular barn solution) or extra bridle pieces (cheekpieces work quite well). This is the only reason I did not give the product 5 stars, since I do have to change it a bit in order to successfully use it.

    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.

    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...
