About this deal

William Cavendish, the Duke of Newcastle, had been educated by his father, Sir Charles Cavendish, to be the best fencing and horse riding instructor in England. The downside of any training aid that only attaches to your horse’s forehand is that it doesn’t harness his hindquarters, so it may not be the most suitable tool if he needs to be encouraged to engage his hindleg.

Use the lunge whip to keep the horse out by pointing it at his shoulder. If it’s a young horse you are teaching to lunge, ask someone to stand by their outside shoulder to guide them and keep them out on the circle in walk. Top tip – If you want to fit a bridle over a cavesson, a sliphead (a bit attached to a headpiece) is ideal. If you don’t have a ready-made one, just remove the noseband, reins and browband from your flatwork bridle. However, a cavesson that lays on the ground or is simply put the head of the horse won’t influence the horse. Take care, the noseband should not be too tight, but nevertheless tight enough so it does not slide over the nose during the training. Lastly, the halter can often turn or rotate on the horse’s head, leaving it dangerously close to injuring the eye, and leaving you without the ability to properly communicate with your horse.If you have a new horse or are just unsure which size rug your horse needs it is useful to take certain measurements of your horse. I can’t answer this question because I don’t know you or your horse. Lunging with a cavesson is still the best option for someone who is new to classical lunging and for horses who tend to pull on the lunge line. If you are uncomfortable lunging off the bit but still want to use side reins, you can invest in a special lunging cavesson and slip bridle setup that combines the two methods. Just be aware that you will pay a pretty penny for that setup, but it may be worth it for some people. Manolo’s Cavesson has a smooth metal nosepiece in place of the usual toothed/serrated nosepiece. Caroline Larrouilh, in collaboration with Manolo, has written articles on his training techniques for the past 14 years. After seeing the original harsh “toothed” seratta, Caroline encouraged Manolo develop a Cavesson that eliminated the harsh ‘toothed’ design and introduce a new type of ‘traditional Cavesson’ — one without teeth. I used to - or a bridle. But I have read that the best place to attach the lunge line to achieve bend is on the front of the nose (i.e. a cavesson). The book is Correct Movement in Horses by Gabriele Rachen-Schöneich and Klaus Schöneich. They say that "the action of the longe line would be acting on the side (not the front) of the horse's head, making it impossible to bend the horse in it's body". They have a number of images in the book which make me think what they are saying on that score makes sense. Plus if I put a finger on my left cheek and "pull" to the left - I feel like I should move my head sideways. If I put a finger on my nose and "pull" to the left, I want to turn my head.

don’t always fit the side reins in the same position. Altering their height during a session, as well as from session to session, allows you to change your horse’s frame and, therefore, his way of going. Experiment to see what happens when they’re lower or higherThese also look nice https://www.gibsonsaddlers.com/product/gibson-plate-cavesson-gold-range-202n/, though perhaps on the jangly side

Because the rein rings on the cavesson sit further forward on the horse’s head than rings on a bridle, a longer rein should be used.
