The Ardall SR1 Comprises of Four Main Parts:

1. The Torsosr1.jpg

The main part of the product resembles a legless, human torso with short arms. At its core, there is a coiled spring, which facilitates movement when mounted on a horse. This spring is enveloped with medium-grade foam in the shape of a torso, which is covered with high quality, UV-protected leatherette.

2. The Base

The torso is affixed to a flat, solid base, which has been specially moulded to fit any standard saddle. This is covered in the same leatherette as the torso. On either side, there are two straps - used for securing the Ardall SR1 onto the horse - and one screw-on ring, through which the reins go during lunging and long-reining.

3. The Harness

An essential component of the product when in use, the harness fits onto the torso. The extent to which the Ardall SR1 moves when mounted on a horse is regulated by the tightness or looseness of the harness.

4. Weights

These weights serve to make the Ardall SR1 heavier helping to introduce the horse to the sensation of a rider’s legs on either side. These take the form of two boot-shaped canvas bags, which are filled evenly with fine sand (up to 2 stone/12.7KG in each.) These are clipped onto the Ardall SR1, one on each side, and secured with straps.

  1. Ardall SR 1 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2015

    A great product, simply good and helpful and easy to handle!
    In the order confirmation an indication of expected delivery time would be helpful.

  2. Helped Fix My Problem Horse 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2015

    My horse was abused, and learned that big, prolonged bucking fits got riders off and kept them off. He was extremely dangerous, had hurt numerous good riders, and had few options left. He was terrified of anything on his back, so it took a lot of time and patience to safely mount the Ardall. Once on, the Ardall worked perfectly, and when incorporated with training the bucking issue has been fixed.

    I highly recommend the Ardall, but suggest the SR2 as it can be folded and is less scary to start with. I also recommend having someone help mount the Ardall for the first couple times. It is difficult to grab and fasten the girth, hold the horse, and hold the Ardall in place. In addition, expect a big reaction when the Ardall is first mounted, make sure you are in a safe environment.

    Prompt delivery, product is well made and the materials are easy clean. Only had the ardall a few days and my young horse appears to accept it without fuss.

    Well packaged, well made, no hassle order.
    Very pleased so far with the purchase, the Ardall stayed on my youngster securely when I wouldn't have!

  6. A great investment 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2013

    Best bit of horse kit I've bought. I was having great difficulty backing a panicky horse. I don't think I could have managed without the Ardall

  7. Simply brilliant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2012

    It's been made brilliantly, very well designed.
    Used it for starting big horses and little ponies and its fabulous. I don't get on until they are totally at ease with the Ardall, it takes a lot of the risk out of starting youngsters.
    Wish I had got one sooner!
