Benefits of Your Click & Connect Neck Strap




Safety, Style & Horsemastership

Whether early in your riding career or competing at élite level, the Click & Connect Neck Strap is designed for you by a British International Event Rider and British Horse Society Accredited Professional Coach (Level3), developed from decades working with horses and riders of all ages and abilities from those taking their first steps to Olympians.

Permitted for British Dressage, British Show Jumping, British Eventing and The Pony Club, the Click & Connect Neck Strap from Salute Equestrian is specifically designed to meet the FEI Ruling 2019 ‘Neck straps if used on cross-country must be attached either to the breastplate or the saddle’.

Connecting the neck strap prevents risk of it falling forward, preventing a potentially fatal injury. 

However, connection also prevents rotation and can give shoulder proprioception turning the 'Oh Heck Strap' into a training and performance aid.

Half-halt with the Click & Connect Neck Strap to train your horse to develop better self-carriage and less reliance on the reins; use it as a neck/shoulder-reining tool to positively guide your horse when breaking in, mounting, past spooks, over ditches and skinnies or for better balance when he's feeling fresh; and help yourself maintain your position rather than holding the neck strap defensively. 



Click & Connect

What every rider wants;
What every horse deserves.

Scenario 1: Confidence

Should you accidentally lose balance and snatch the rein, you could turn a drama into a crisis as the horse is frightened by the snatch, throws his head, and runs away.
A quick link of your finger around the Click & Connect Neck Strap aids your stability and security while allowing the horse freedom of the rein.

Scenario 2: Relaxation

Mounting can be a time of anticipation for horse and rider.
Reassure your horse and yourself by taking hold of your Click & Connect Neck Strap. In improving both horse and rider balance it’ll help you cope should your horse continue to be jumpy while over time the pressure on the horse’s neck will encourage him to stand more quietly.

Scenario 3: Trust

Your horse is convinced there’s a threat in the bushes. You can’t drop the rein to let him look for fear he’ll turn and run.
Pop a hand on the Click & Connect Neck Strap to keep you secure so you can then give him freedom of the rein to look, learn and earn mutual trust.

Scenario 4: Improving self-carriage

Your horse likes to lean on the rein.
By applying gentle pressure on the Click & Connect Neck Strap the horse is encouraged to lift up through the base of his neck, and it also helps the rider to move his upper body up and back, so teaching the horse to develop self-carriage from the rider’s body aids and reduce reliance on the bridle.
