We wrongly assumed that all horsey people had lungeing equipment in their tack rooms. It seems that many of you are trying lungeing for the first time or have old bits of tack that need replacing. We decided to develop our own range of lungeing accessories so that we can equip you with as much or as little as you need. There is a large range of lungeing equipment available from retailers but much of it we would not use ourselves so we have designed cavessons and rollers that we are happy to use on our horses and feel happy to recommend to others.
We do not generally like lungeing cavessons as they are extremely heavy on the front of the nose and don't often fit very well. We have designed a lovely lightweight practical lungeing cavesson that is made from soft yet strong modern webbing. It was runner-up in the innovations awards at BETA 2012 for its modern design which reduces rubbing and twisting. It also has optional bit straps which eliminates the need to have a bridle squashed under the cavesson. We think this is an excellent addition to the tack room. Unless your horse is particularly strong or inclined to take liberties, you should avoid attaching the lunge rein to the bit as this disturbs the soft, equal contact that is created by the training aid. Lungeing from the bit can cause sideways pressure on the mouth and inward head tilt which are both undesirable. Lungeing from the middle ring of the cavesson avoids pressure on the bit and makes changing the rein simple as you just turn the horse in the other direction and carry on. We are proud that our cavessons are designed and made in England.
EquiAmi lunge cavessons come in black, pony, cob or full size.
The lungeing roller should be well designed, confortable and have a large D ring on each side to allow the training aid to pass through. We found that, often, the D ring was not in quite the right position which depended very much upon the width of the horse. We have developed a roller with two generous D rings on each side so that there will usually be one that sits in the right place for the particular horse being lunged. Feece lined for comfort EquiAmi rollers are available in black and in pony, cob and full sizes. They have plenty of adjustment and strong eyelets. Both the cavessons and rollers are Made in England in Walsall - home of good saddlery.
Lunge reins are a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer a light thin one whilst others may prefer a padded heavier rein. We offer a choice of cushion web or lightweight thinner lunge reins. We are working on our own design which will have a useful additional feature - watch this space.
