Saddle strap equestrian
A saddle strap is included with each airbag. If you have more than one saddle, you can install a saddle strap on each of them to get on the horse quickly with your airbag. In order to ensure a reliable and fast inflation, you must use the saddle strap. Do not attach your carabiner directly to the metal rings on your saddle. We do not know their resistance and they could tear off during a fall. To know how to install your saddle strap, please consult the "installation" tab below.
How to install your saddle strap:
Remove the two stirrup leathers from your saddle. Your saddle strap is shaped like a Y. Attach the Y-arms on each side of your saddle to the stirrup blades. You may need to loosen the strap to reach the stirrup blades. Put your stirrup leathers back on.
The rider is responsible for the proper installation of the saddle strap on the saddle. Be sure to adjust your saddle strap correctly:
• Not too long, which could delay or prevent the airbag triggering for example if you ride a small horse or pony.
• Not too short, which could hinder you while riding, for example when jumping.
HINT: Once the saddle strap is installed, get on your horse with your airbag. Attach your carabiner to the metal ring of the saddle strap and stand on your stirrups. The elastic part of the lanyard should be barely stretched.
