Equilibrium Symmetry Lower Leg Strap

A Simple and Effective Lower Leg Training Aid

Symmetry Straps are a simple idea designed to help riders develop a feel for the correct leg position in the saddle and to train the body to be able to adopt and maintain this position easily, in a safe, simple to use and discreet way.

This unique training aid works by securing the stirrup iron to the girth in a safe and subtle way that allows the rider to develop feel and security of the lower leg – the foundation for skilful riding.

Increases body awareness

The rider becomes immediately aware of how much their lower leg has been out of position or moving involuntarily.

Promotes muscle memory and strength

By training the body to adopt a quieter position, the rider builds the muscular strength to hold the correct position.

Symmetry Straps incorporate an in-built safety release system making them ideal for use in all equestrian disciplines from flatwork schooling to show jumping, so you can ride confidently with a secure leg and seat.

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1 – Fit the saddle and girth as normal but leave the girth loose. Draw the stirrup irons down and note where they are level with the girth.

Step 2 – With the D rings facing the front of the horse, slide the strap under the girth with soft loop side of the strap towards you.

Step 3 – Thread the end of the strap through both D Rings.

Step 4 – Pull through so strap tightens around the girth.

Step 5 – Draw the Hook back through ONE of the D rings. Check that the soft Loop side of the strap is facing towards the front of the horse, if it is not, go back to Step 2.

Step 6 – Pull the strap taut. The strap should now stay in position on the girth.

Step 7 – When you are ready to mount up, secure the right stirrup by taking the loose Hook end around the inside of the stirrup iron.

Step 8 – Fold the Hook back onto the soft look Fabric.

Step 9 – Check that the Hook is secured by patting it down.

Step 10 – Mount up and when you have checked your girth reach down and secure the left strap around the left stirrup iron. Check that it is secure. Ensure that the horse is at a halt and away from any potential hazards.
