Description

The Equiami lunge aid provides a complete answer to schooling, training or rehabilitating the competition or pleasure horse.

We lunge our horses with the aim of giving them exercises to do that build up their musculature and fitness in order to improve their performance under saddle, yet when we lunge them we generally put them in a training aid that places them in some sort of restraint by fixing or applying pressure. This is the opposite of what we endeavor to achieve under saddle. It is far more logical to lunge the horse in a training aid that works in a similar way to the way we ride them; to encourage a soft consistent contact and to discourage leaning and resistance.

The unique patented design of EquiAmi training aids place the horse inside a self-centring loop. The positioning of the loop of the lungeing training aid encourages the horse to bring its hindlegs underneath its hindquarters, to lower its head and shorten its frame by developing wither lift. As the horse adopts a more rounded outline, it is immediately rewarded by the training aid becoming looser. When the training aid is working at its best, it is applying absolutely no pressure and the horse is working in a relaxed manner. As the loop is self-centring and is not fixed, the horse is unable to lean on the aid so has to learn to balance, lighten and carry itself. The safety loop that is incorporated in the lungeing aid allows sufficient free movement for all horses whilst preventing the horse from catching itself in the mouth at each stride.

Using a webbing chest piece, English made marine quality rope with strong, brass plated clips and adjusters, this product offers great quality at a very reasonable price.

The standard EquiAmi lungeing aid comprises a webbing chest piece, the two colour coded sections of the lungeing loop, an instruction booklet and a DVD that explains how to fit and use the aids all in a hessian storage bag.

SIZE

Full size to fit from approx 13 hands to 16.2/17 hands depending on width and length of forehand.

 

🌟🌟🌟Product review by Jenny Adamson: I have used the Equiami training aid for years, and one of the main benefits from my point of view as a physiotherapist/ rehabilitation specialist, is that the system isn’t fixed like some.🌟🌟🌟

In rehabilitation I am normally looking to encourage horses to lengthen and ‘let go’ of their topline, by stretching down and out with their head and neck, and engage / strengthen their abdominals, especially with horses in rehabilitation for over-riding dorsal spinous processes (kissing spine). Also I’m generally looking for them to work in a looser way, as most have been in a holding pattern due to injury.

The Equiami helps me to achieve all of this, it’s not fixed, it encourages the horse to engage the abdominals, lengthen the topline, and engage the hindlimbs, and all in a loose way.

Benefits:

  • Easy to set up and use
  • Encourages horse into a correct working frame, training them to use their core properly
  • Helps to engage abdominals
  • Helps to teach horse to stretch down
  • Engagement of hindlimbs
  • Vets recommend this system for rehabilitation post kissing spine treatment/surgery to correct way of going
