Development of the back muscles
With the Pessoa Training Aid, the back muscles are encouraging to work firstly in the low position, developing muscles at the base of the neck, and subsequently in the high position, which is similar to that of a ridden horse.
Used correctly, it can be an excellent tool for helping horses to find their own balance. When cantering, the Pessoa Training Aid enourages the horse to take the weight of the forehand and bring his hinquaters underneath him, thus improving his balance.
