Pessoa Training System
We have used this system on several horses (and ponies) with great amount of success. Mind you, I would definitely have an experienced horse person show you how to use this system. Also, the bridle and surcingle are sold separately and are not included in this package. I've included a link to the surcingle that works best with this product below.
Invented by International show jumping rider, Nelson Pessoa, this system** is designed to encourage balance and a gradual build-up of topline. It 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 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. It can assist maintenance of muscle tone in fit horses, while less experienced horses can be guided into the correct shape. The Pessoa Lungeing System can be used in four different positions, depending on the horse's level of training and fitness. Available in Horse or Pony size.
Size guidelines- This product is made with a high level of adjustability.

This advanced training should be used by an experienced handler with a horse that has had experience ground driving before using this system.
