Oh okay, what you describe reminds me of this tool I've seen used ( I don't remember the name of it) It's pretty much the same except it clips onto a roller or the d-links of the saddle and has sheep skin lining it where it touches the hindquarters.

Wherever man has left his footprint in the long ascent from barbarism to civilization we will find the hoofprint of the horse beside it. ~John Moore

Yep that's a Pessoa system. I don't mind them, but lunging work will only do so much, you still need to do the work under saddle.

Yep, it's a Make-Your-Own-Pessoa-At-Home trick. Way cheaper than getting a surcingle, etc.
