Why We Love This

The Pessoa Lungeing System was invented by international show jumping rider Nelson Pessoa. The Pessoa Lungeing System is designed to encourage balance and a gradual build-up of topline. The Pessoa Lungeing System consists of an easy-to-put-together array of ropes, clips and pulleys, as well as a breeching strap that passes behind the horse’s hindquarters, and is used in conjunction with a training surcingle while the horse is being lunged.

Based on the principles of pressure and release, the Pessoa Lungeing System helps to place the horse in a better position to assist muscle build-up, and increases use of the horse’s back muscles. The Pessoa Lungeing System can assist maintenance of muscle tone in fit horses, while less experienced horses can be guided into the correct shape. It can be used in four different positions, depending on the horse’s level of training and fitness.

**Surcingle is not included**

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Pessoa Lungeing System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pessoa Lunge System worth every dime The Pessoa System is amazing. My 15 yr old OTTB has been having back issues and hollowing out his back, hence losing musculature on his entire top line. Within a two weeks of using Pessoa he has already changed his musculature in back and neck, is propelling much better from the rear, and is able to hold his collection at walk and trot when I began riding again in week three. We have been working him at a trot for 5 to 6 minutes/ each direction/ once a day. That’s it. I’m totally impressed and he is feeling MUCH better.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs small Bought a horse size & the system runs so small that anything wearing a 76+blanket will be adding bailing twine Side lines are only 114”

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything in Moderation I bought a horse that had been on this system. He had an excellent head carriage and was an excellent mover. He won every flat class he entered. BUT, it affected his spine as he aged and he became unrideable. I think the key is don’t overuse this lunging system. Everything in moderation, nothing in excess. Don’t use it ALL the time. A few times a week for no more than 20-30 minutes is adequate, and don’t use it forever. It is a great training tool if used properly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! Has my horse so relaxed and stretching down. Couldn't be happier!
    Date published: 2016-12-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working for all our horses! So far every horse we have put it on moves well in it, holding the proper position without being upset by the rig! We have been using it with training halters/cavesons rather than through a bit so far, which may make a difference. The horses drop right into position though and move in a relaxed way - only one very sensitive horse walked backwards at first from the perceived pressure but simple leading convinced her she could move forward normally. Do make sure to NEVER put the equipment down on the arena floor though or the clips and pulley wheels will get jammed up with sand! And even then, you'll want to use an air canister or some WD-40 to keep it all free-moving with all the dust a trotting horse kicks up! We're already thinking these bits may need replacing eventually.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast results I recently was given an OTTB who had done nothing but stand around for a few years. His movement was gawky and loose. His topline -- well, one could almost say, "That is not a topline." His stomach muscles were flaccid. After the third workout (we worked for only 10 min.), I noticed an improvement in everything! Plus, he doesn't resist it at all, and is enjoying his workouts. It is a bit tricky to put on in the New Mexico spring winds, but not complicated.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it but overpriced I really like this system, and it works very well. however, it is way overpriced for basically a few ropes attached together. I feel like I could've made something almost as good as the system offered for a much lower price
    Date published: 2015-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paying for the Intellectual Property Yes, for what the material is, it is pricey, but you're paying for the intellectual property. I was wary of this product at fist, but when my very anti-gadget trainer had me lunge my warmblood mare in it, I was sold! We never adjust it like draw reins, but run it up so that it more closely simulates reins. It works by keeping the horse's hind end engaged, and pushes the hind end more when the horse tries to lift out of the contact. This solves a problem I see a lot on regular side reins, where the horse braces into the bit, but disengages or swings the hind end out. It forces the horse to develop straightness but immediately rewards the horse when he/she gives. I have also been using it on my Tennessee Walker I'm training, and he has become much more relaxed in his back and is developing the correct muscles faster. Also the imagery of the system has helped my riding in the saddle! Imagine your own seat as the butt bar, and you'll better understand how to address the hind end when the front end resists!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent training tool I began using this on my green gelding who did not have much muscle or know how to properly use his back. He accepted it well and the effect has been amazing. He is much, much straighter and stronger overall when I ride. Best investment yet. For those not happy with the lack of instructions, they are all over youtube. It's easy to use.
