Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar

Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar

The Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar allows effortless horse and rider alignment to be achieved by altering the position of the stirrup bar, enabling you complete control over your preferred riding position. The Adjustable Ergonomic Stirrup Bar can be easily repositioned by simply lifting the catch and sliding the bar to suit your individual position. The bar should then be secured by pressing down firmly on the catch and locking the bar into place.

Moveable FlexiContourbloc

Moveable FlexiContourbloc

Anatomically contoured to your leg allowing you to ride in and behind the knee block to support your individual position for maximised comfort and security. The FlexiContourbloc can be moved forwards, backwards, or on the precise angle to mirror your individual riding position. To adjust, simply loosen the screws on the underside, then tighten once you have found your desired position.
