The De Gogue, a piece of tack that was developed by French horseman Rene Gogue, is very popular in Europe. It is designed to encourage the horse to raise the neck, free the shoulders and engage the hocks. It can be used whilst lunging as well as riding, and has two settings for adjustability.
KenTaur Gogue Training Aid as well as our KenTaur Chambon Training Aid include elastic components.
With both devices, the horse needs to be encouraged to work forward and with impulsion to prevent going on the forehand. We would only recommend use of these training aids by experienced riders or under the guidance of a professional.
