Need opinions on training system

So I want to get into really training Vega come spring time, so i'm buying a bunch of stuff now. I have a caveson, surcingle, vienna lunge reins and I want to look into something to help everywhere. Jazzy got a kincade version of the Pessoa and i've been looking around for something similar, and I believe I found it.
Do you think this will work just like the Pessoa?

There's another one too that I can just get everything but the surcingle and caveson.

Thanks a bunch

I don't know what that second one is all about but the first one looks great. Basically exactly the same as mine therefore I think it will do the same job ;) let me know when you get it and how it all goes :)

the second one is basically like the first, but it looks really confusing. I can get it without the caveson and surcingle.

And thanks Jazzy!

A training system isn't about the equipment you buy. A horse can receive excellent training (especially in the beginning) using only the most basic equiptment: halter, some long, soft leadlines, a saddle(of your choice, depending on riding style), a headstall and snaffle, long reins, longeline, etc.

very true...but!! These systems are designed not just for frame but for balance and correctness. They are designed as an aid not as a complete training method. It works quickly and effectively without any added strain on the horse.

It has helped me no end with training my wb. It helps with teaching them the right frame while building the muscle they need to hold that frame. It teaches a young/green/unbalanced horse how to balance himself especially in a tighter circle where cantering is difficult for unbalanced horses.

When you can find a training aid that makes your life easier I say why not embrace it . Sometimes its a pleasure to find a method that makes training our horses easier and more enjoyable :)

Different method resulting in the same outcome basically

"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"

the reason why I was looking into something like this is because Vega gets very unbalanced at the canter. Her trot has improved, but we are still working on it. The snow has really put a damper on things:(

Before I got her, she would be lunged in a round pen, not really lunged, but made to run around in circles until she got tired. Then she was ridden. So she had no idea how to walk,trot, canter balanced in a round pen. I have tried helping her to rebalance herself while i'm on her, but I think it would be better if she can do it without the extra added weight of me.

I will be order it today and try it out when I get it, depending on the weather tho.

ok I will! I hope it comes with little pictures and how to set it up.

Did you put Jarred in it and then walked to where you lunged, or put it all on while he was already in the lunging area?
