We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

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**

    Pessoa Lungeing System is rated 4.2083 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great training tool I can see the difference after using it several times. My horse is a 1.20m horse and in shape but can only be on it for ruffly 20 minutes. But it helps her go in a proper frame and build up the correct muscles.It is a little over priced for what you get but it works. So you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It may seem like a lot of money but... I used this product on my former horse he was an appendix. He was very easy to ride and showed in both hunters and dressage how ever on his transitions would pop his head or be heavy on the bit. My friend bought this for her thoroughbred who went with his head in the air all the time. I used it on tge medium setting and i like how it works because if they lift their head it pushes their hind end under them making them use their top line and when they give and relax it allows them to stay balanced and go long and low, my appendix used this 3 times and never needed it again and my friends thoroughbred built beautiful muscling and was much lighter in the bit PLEASE NOTE starting on the medium or low setting is easiest for a horse not use to it, and if youre using this i prefer to not ride them after because 10 minutes in the pessoa is like 20 minutes under saddle. Check out video on youtube "ruby at oxbow" the second video him lunging on the medium setting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watch video to assemble I had to jerry-rig my training surcingle w carabiners to make it work. Although I'd like to say we look like the videos, maybe not just yet. I think it's too soon to tell if I have good results. And you're definitely paying for the innovation and not the parts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great training system! Slightly confusing to put on the first few times, but one can quickly get the hang of it. Noteworthy improvements in my horse in a matter of weeks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed review I think this is a great system, the quality is good too. It does not come with any directions, that is the problem. You get a small tri-fold brochure with basic information. I would not consider this instructions for use. If you don't have a trainer that can oversee the use of this, you run the risk of using it incorrectly and potentially harning the horse. This product should come with better instructions or a video. I tried contacting pessoa twice via email and have gotten no response.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I can really appreciate the quality of the pessoa system. The ropes, hardware, and fleece are TOP notch. I wasn't excited about the price initially but you can definitely see a difference from other systems.I had tried my friend's training surcingle and didn't care for it at all so I did get another fleece surcingle from a different company.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A ton of money for ropes and pulley I like the idea of this system, to get the horse to use themselves correctly, but when ever I opened the bag and really took a look at my purchase (over $200), I was shocked to see there was hardly anything to it. Some ropes, pulley and faux sheep skin (from what I understand it used to be real). Is it worth that kind of money, that is very questionable! I might return it. Not sure....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system Bought this system over a year ago when my vet suggested it to me to help build back muscles. I was very skeptical because of the price but went for it anyway. I have to say, I absolutely loved the way it worked. My horse didn't mind all the gear on him and learned how it worked very quickly. Over a few months the difference was unbelievable. You could see the difference just looking at his muscle development! Not to mention his performance under saddle improved greatly. I am very satisfed with this product and would suggest it to everyone!

    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...
