A new RS-tor rider safety aid has been launched that has an extra long strap which means it now fits treeless and side saddles.

The company says that the RS-tor rider safety aid helps riders develop balance and keeps them safer in the saddle. Manufacturer, Lee Buck, explains that the product is held like a whip in the rider’s hand and if their horse were to spook, buck or rear, the fall prevention aspect comes into effect.

The product can be used in affiliated British Showjumping competitions but may only be used in the warm-up sections of affiliated British Dressage and British Eventing contests. It does not break Pony Club equipment rules and may generally be used within BSPS Heritage and Tiny Tots showing classes.

The RS-tor safety aid is manufactured by PolyPads and is available for £44.99. It is available in all sizes from childs to adults.
