We analyse the use of parametric and quasiperiodic modulations in suppressing horseshoe structure in the phase plane of perturbed pendulum systems. Taking the Froude pendulum as a typical system, four different modulation mechanisms are studied by deriving analytic expressions for the window of the strength of modulation giving suppression in each case. A comparison of the four cases from the point of view of flexibility and efficiency is also given.
