This special offer, the Horse Hero Lungeing Duo, is made up of the Horse Hero Cavesson and Lungeing Rope. These two products have been designed (with help from the Bechtolsheimers) to be used in conjunction with each other and are available with a 10% discount when bought together - the ideal way to improve your horse's lungeing!

The Horse Hero Cavesson

The cavesson is a beautiful piece of hand made, hand stitched leatherwork using the best quality leather, padded with calf skin and latex and offering plenty of adjustment to ensure maximum comfort for the horse during lungeing. This style of cavesson is the preferred choice of Dr Wilfried Bechtolsheimer and used by Laura in the Horse Hero lungeing video, Laura has made some refinements to the Horse Hero version (only available on this site), so that it's ultra light and easy to use. It is especially suited for use in conjunction with the Horse Hero Lungeing Rope shown in the same video (available together in this special offer).
Laura Bechtolsheimer says, “I wanted to ensure the cavesson was well padded so it can be made tight enough to prevent any pulling and shearing forces to the horse’s nose when using the rings on either side.”
Dr Bechtolsheimer says, “Care should be taken when introducing the young horse to the first steps of his education to avoid unnecessary stress. By not putting something strange into his mouth on the lunge, the horse will be more co-operative and less resistant, as it is likely some pulling will be involved when teaching him to move around a circle. However, by using a well fitting cavesson and adopting a patient approach, he will learn the lungeing lesson more quickly. The cavesson is also useful for work in hand and long reining later on in the horse’s education.”
The Horse Hero Cavesson is available in Full Size and Extra Full, in Black. All rings and buckles are brass coloured rather than the silver colour shown in the photos and video.

Please note: If you are unsure as to which size to order, measurements are as follows:

Full Size: Headstrap 37" - 44.5"; Throat strap 11.5" - 17.5"; Noseband 23" - 28"; Browband 16"
Extra Full: Headstrap 40" - 48"; Throat strap 14.5" - 21"; Noseband 25" - 30"; Browband 16.5"

The Horse Hero Lungeing Rope

The quality of workmanship in this lungeing rope is second to none. It has been hand made using solid brass clip hooks and the best climbing rope. The thread is hand wound then varnished and laquered for extra strength to secure the clips to the rope. The rope is similar to that used in Laura Bechtolsheimer's lungeing video. Her father and trainer Dr Bechtolsheimer has made some refinements to the design and all materials are to his exacting specifications. This product is best used in conjunction with the Horse Hero Cavesson (available together in this special offer).
Dr Wifried Bechtolsheimer says:
“This is a very useful tool for young horses as well as for fully trained older horses. For young horses, especially in combination with a cavesson, it encourages the still excitable and unbalanced horse to drop his head to a comfortable level. This has various beneficial effects. Taking the head down will help to calm the horse very quickly. (You will never see an excited or panicky horse trot or canter very far with the head down.) The horse can use its neck to find its balance and therefore will find it easier to produce a natural and regular rhythm. In other words, you will find out that the horse tends to run less but will start going with a swinging back much sooner. Whereas, if you use side reins, the horse is restricted and will feel so continually."
He continues, "the lungeing rope is easy to handle but there are a few important things to remember:
·         Check you have equal length of rope on both sides before each lungeing session.
·         The length of the rope should allow the horse to stretch out without restriction, but should not be too long so that it can slide too far back on his back or that he could tread on it.
·         Never have the rope so tight that the horse is forced to take the head down. This could result in severe injury. If the horse feels too restricted it might try to throw the head up and fall over backwards or the rope might rub under the upper arm of the front legs.”

Available in Full size (for horses up to 16.2hh) and Extra Full. Both products are made by Albion for Horse Hero. (Please note, the rope is a specialised climbing product and may come in slightly different colours, depending on what's available.)
