The Chambon is used for lunging only to assist in muscle development along the back and topline.
The Chambon is a training device that is used to encourage the horse to lower their head and necks and stretch out through their backs to encourage correct muscle development, relaxation and suppleness.
- When the horse raises their head the Chambon comes into action causing the bit to be lifted upwards through pressure being applied on the poll, bars, corners and tongue.
- In order to release the pressure the horse has to lower their head and necks and therefore stretch down.
- When used correctly the Chambon can greatly help to build up a horses back and top line muscles as well as encouraging muscle relaxation which can be of benefit especially after injury for example.
- The Chambon attaches to a roller and runs through the horses front legs and up through the chest. From here the Chambon splits into two pieces each with a buckle adjustment.
- The Chambon then changes from leather to cord. Each piece of cord then runs up to the poll on either side of the horses head.
- The Chambon is attached to the bridle at the headpiece where a pulley system allows the Chambon to freely slide from the poll down the horses cheek before clipping on to the upper part of each of the bit rings.
