We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

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**

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! Has my horse so relaxed and stretching down. Couldn't be happier!

    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

    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!
