Pessoa Longeing System was invented by international show jumping rider, Nelson Pessoa. The Pessoa Longeing System is designed to encourage balance and a gradual build-up of topline. Used in conjunction with a training surcingle while the horse is being longed.
Based on the principles of pressure and release, the Pessoa Longeing System helps to place the horse in a better position to assist muscle build-up, and increases use of the horse’s back muscles. The Pessoa Longeing System can assist maintenance of muscle tone in fit horses, while less experienced horses can be guided into the correct shape. The Pessoa Longeing System can be used in four different positions, depending on the horse’s level of training and fitness. Longeing Surcingle not included. Available in Horse Size

I love the concept but never could find a position where the rope didn't rub the stifle. The pad was too short for a full size horse and does not come around like the picture shows.

When I first heard about this lunging system (and saw the price tag), I was too skeptical to actually purchase it. Then I worked at a barn that owned one and it was so effective I ended up using it regularly on many of my training horses. It's great for building up muscle in the right places and encouraging proper movement without the help of a rider.
