The Shires soft lunge aid is based on the principles of the 'German String'. The lunging aid acts on the bars and corners of the mouth when the horse raises its head, encouraging the head to lower.
The Shires Soft Lunging Aid encourages a longer, lower outline and allows the horse to stretch though his back without fixing the head. It can be particularly useful for horses that feel restricted in other types of training aids.
The Shires Soft Lunging Aid attaches to the bit with swivel trigger clips where the rope can be shortened and lengthened.
