Symmetry Straps from Equilibrium Products are 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.
If you have ever struggled to keep your lower leg still or in the correct position, Symmetry Straps might just be the thing to help you!
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. You will become far more aware of how much your lower leg moves or how far forward or back your leg position becomes. The Symmetry Straps then help you to focus on developing a quieter, more correct riding position that's more comfortable both for you and your horse.
Now granted, we completely agree that a correct lower leg position comes from a correct upper body position - it doesn't work in isolation. But the difficulty comes when you can't feel where your position should be - particularly when you're riding on your own. If you can feel what you're aiming for and become more aware of the reality of your riding position, you're halfway there and that's where Symmetry Straps can help.
The Symmetry Straps are also completely safe in the event that you find yourself disappearing out of the side door and falling off. The safety release system will simply pull away if you get into any difficulty - there is no danger of getting stuck or caught up.
Ideal for use when schooling either for flatwork, dressage or showjumping.
