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.
