The De Gouge is used while riding by many hunter and jumper riders as a head setting device. As with many training devices, it's recommended to be used by a professional or when supervised by a qualified trainer. Teach your horse to relax his poll and engage the topline with the Shires De Gogue Training Martingale. Perfect for lunging sessions, this martingale applies pressure at the poll and mouth to allow him to relax and engage from behind.
The De Gogue is based on the theory of three points of major resistance in the horse - the poll, the mouth and the base of the neck. The idea is that this aid overcomes stiffness in these areas and within the triangle created by the device, the horse learns to carry its head comfortably in the required lower position.
