I love this! I use it on my OTTB and he goes great in it. It is my trainer's and I am interested in buying one, but I was wondering if it comes with a surcingle or if that is separate!
Unparallel to any other training aid out there. However, it should not be used more than a couple times a week and not on consecutive days, because it is such a good workout. The only time I've heard of horses "disliking" it is when it's overused. It should be a supplemental part of their training not the sole conditioning tool.
it has made my horse strong in his back, but he started disliking it....
I love the Pessoa training system! It really develops the muscles required for a horse to carry himself in a frame. I've felt a big difference in my horse's balance since using it. I started out using it in 20 minute session, and then once he'd developed strength I now use it once a week for 45 minutes.
The Pessoa training aid works very well. I have used it on my horse that has a regular basis of tripping and on my 5 year old paint. Both horses have improved tramendously. I very much recommend the pessoa training system.
It is well constructed, the ropes being very strong yet smooth so they don't rub the horses sides and also slide through the pulley rings well. I thought maybe it would squeak when going through the rings but it hasn't even after a great deal of use.
