The EquiAmi lungeing training aid can be fitted to a horse tacked up in a snaffle bridle and lungeing roller in just a few minutes. It is designed to be used for 20 minutes twice a week. The pack is accompanied by a short DVD which shows how to fit anduse the aid alongwith clear printed instructions.
Correct use of the EquiAmi training aid encourages the horse to work in a soft, round outline, to work with engagement of the hindquarters, and to carry himself. It works by suggestion and reward, and by connecting the whole horse. The unique, patented design of EquiAmi training aids place the horse inside a self-centering loop. The positioning of the loop of the lungeing training aid encourages the horse to bring its hind legs underneath its hindquarters, to lower its head and shorten its frame.
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-centering and is not fixed, the horse is unable to lean on the aid so has to learn to balance and carry itself. Another advantage of the loop system is that it is only necessary to make adjustments to one side of the training aid as it is a loop and self-centres so always remains equal provided it is fitted correctly.
Whilst not designed for unbroken horses, it can be used as part of a basic training routine, once a younghorse is comfortable with a rope or long rein aroundthe hindquarters. Teaching a horse to work throughhis back from the start makes more sense than making corrections or retraining at a later stage though this is equally well achieved using the EquiAmi lungeing aid.
The EquiAmi lungeing aid provides a good workout for fit horses when weather conditions or time constraints restrict riding. It is also recommended by experts that we work our horses from the floor once or twice a week so that the important muscles that support the saddle can work without pressure. This enables unrestricted blood flow through these muscles to allow them to 'pump-up' and strengthen. This in turn supports the saddle and rider more effectively and lifts the saddle away from the spine when ridden.
The riding training aid also operates as a self-centering loop around the head and neck. The rider has to ride the horse forward into the loop to promote engagement of the hindquarters and the training aid encourages the horse to soften, accept the hand and come into a rounder outline. Immediately the horse responds to the training aid it is rewarded by the aid becoming looser.
