Model: Longe Caveson
Category: Training Equipment
Purchase: Have wanted a longe caveson for some time. After ordering one from Dover and returning it as so poorly designed as to be unusable, I went back to my local tack shop where I'd previously admired this one. It had seemed expensive at $176 but I wish I'd gotten it ages ago.
Likes: Beautiful leather with soft padding on the noseband that is holding up well. The jowl strap is attached closer to the noseband than it is in many designs so it is effective at keeping the strap out of the horse's eye. The noseband fits securely and doesn't slide around. The metal hardware is good.
Dislikes: The sizing is a bit misleading. I purchased a horse size for my Lipizzan and it was so HUGE I ended up returning it and getting the cob size. The cob size is large enough that it also fits my trainer's Dutch horse with plenty of room to make it larger.
Summary: Love it. Now that I have one I wish I'd gotten it ages ago. You have much effective communication over longing in either a regular halter or bridle. Only criticism is that the price is so steep.
