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**

    Pessoa Lungeing System is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 28.
    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!

    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.

    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.
