Chambon is a little widespread mixed form of the various auxiliaries.
It is characteristic that the auxiliary stanchion is not only fastened to the saddle strap and is guided on or through the bridle rings,
But has an additional holding point on the neck portion of the bridle.
The auxiliary rider is guided by the saddle strap between the front legs of the horse through a ring on the neck piece to the bridle rings.
Through the additional action over the neck, the horse should be stimulated to stretch forward-downward,
Because if it lifts the head too high, there may be painful pressure on the neck and in the mouth.
However, the horse can not find a link here. The Chambon is intended to counter the danger which every auxiliary organism contains:
The horse can escape the action by rolling the neck, thus bringing the head as close as possible to the center of the circle.
In extreme cases, the horse's nostrils touch his breast. The Chambon is a hard help, which can also provoke a violent counter-defense of the horse.
Tips with difficult exterior
Horses with building defects - such as a high-necked neck, lower ridges or narrow gaiters - often also have trouble stretching their backs to their hands. These helpers can help.
Others crawl behind the bridle. Sibylle Wiemer, FN-riding instructor and honorary member of the Légèreté school: "A chambon that requires extreme stretching can help." And can loosen solid muscles.
The principle: from the saddle belt leads a leather loop between the front legs to a non-elastic rope. Its ends are guided on both sides by the ring of the neck piece, pulled down on the head to the bridle ring and hooked there. The advantage: "horses immediately notice that the pressure in the mouth and the neck decreases as soon as they drop their necks," says Sabine Ellinger. "Horses that roll up can do their noses, which they can not do with other helpers such as the minder." Sibylle Wiemer adds: "At the same time, the horse can continue to use his neck as a balancing rod and perform natural pitch movements with his head."
What to look out for: "Do not just let the horse run, but actively push it from behind. Ask for many passes, and do not let the horse get too deep, "emphasizes Wiemer. A tip from Sabine Ellinger: "The horse in the roundpen work, so it has a lateral limitation. And lengthen with the cap, so that the lunge does not have to be hung in the dentition. "Source Cavallo
