first time with the pessoa - updated

i tried the pessoa for the first time today and all went really well. it was way easier to put together than i thought it would be. there were pictures on the back of the packaging which helped too. i set it up quite loose and only lunged him for about 5 minutes all up but he did pretty well.




ive added a short video too :)

Cute horse!
Someday I would love to try the pessoa training system. It looks worth it.

he looks like he did well jazzy :) seems to me that it would deffinately be benificial to him for you to tighten it up a fair bit as atm there is no pressure at all on him to pull his nose in.

On the eigth day God created the Quarter Horse..... on the ninth day, he painted the best ones........

yeah i know it was just his first time so i wanted it to be loose while he got used to the bit around his bum and all that. i will tighten it a little more next time

but he did do pretty well. he wasnt too fussed about all the new gadgetry and he just did his thing

blumagic - its a lunging system designed to help in the training stages of horses. it helps improve balance and muscle tone etc as you go through the 4 steps it has (all ranging from long and low to fully engaged) your horse builds the right muscle tone to hold a proper frame. it teaches the horse the right frame also

lovely horse :)

He looks like he's enjoying himself and doesn't care much.
I've always wanted to buy a training system like that.

Good luck with him!

nah, he didnt care at all :) i will keep you posted. im going to keep a photo diary of how things go with it. there isnt much info on the net about them so i figure i can share some :)

grendel -

thank you :)
he did seem to enjoy himself...my theory is that he is happy to work out cause there is this little pinto mare there that he has fallen love with and hes feeling self conscious cause he doesnt have much muscle yet lol

fehrgroundranch - i got it from horseland here in australia. but there are plenty of places online where you can get them. mine was made by kincade which is exactly the same as the pessoa but made by a different company. still very high quality and i got it for $50 but that was on sale. normally it would have been $80. the actual pessoa brand will cost around $150 - $180. there are other brands out there but i cant comment on their quality. some sites list them as training systems or balance systems. just depends on what that company decided to call it :)

Thank you very much Jazzy. I will be sure to look it up. Looks like it will really help out with balance.
