The GFS Pessoa Training Aid encourages the horse to work in a harmonious way. The Pessoa persuades and suggests, helping the horse to find its own natural balance and rhythm. Typical schooling aids, other than the pessoa, often create a rigid contact with the horses’ mouth. In contrast, the Pessoa training aid recognised to work correctly a fluid contact is required to accommodate individual movements. This is created by a series of sympathetic ropes and pulleys on the Pessoa that are used while lunging to encourage the horse to work in perfect shape. When developing the Pessoa Training Aid, Nelson Pessoa acknowledged that a horses all important back muscles need to be free when working to achieve the desired balance and impulsion. The Pessoa training aid promotes the philosophy and therefore the Pessoa supports the development of the back muscles in all horses. Ideally work with the Pessoa training aid should begin when the horse is young. Sizes available Cob / Full – Adjustable to suit each individual horse.

Draw reins and side reins are training aids that can help your horse learn to maintain light contact with the bit while moving forward freely into the bridle, and to carry himself straight and in balance. Draw reins are used for schooling under saddle, side reins are used primarily for work on the lunge and in hand.
Side reins are two reins that clip to the bit rings and then run straight back on either side of the horse to attach to the girth or roller. They should only be used for lunging a horse. They‚Äôre used to provide a rein contact for a horse to work into. The side reins are used for many reasons, establishing the initial contact with young horse, developing topline muscle, developing different frames progressively, establishing acceptance of contact, improving suppleness through the back, encouraging a consistent and steady outline and achieving looseness of paces through suppleness. Side reins must also be adjusted to equal lengths or slightly shorter to the inside. Uneven reins will develop a lop-sided horse. Ensure the horse is driven forward into the reins ‚Äì without this, muscle development won‚Äôt happen.
