Product Description

The NEW Ardall SR2 is a device for training horses. Designed primarily to acustom unbroken horses, or horses that have not been ridden for some time, to safely accept a rider, the Ardall SR2 can also be used for training performance horses.

The Ardall SR2 Comprises of Four Main Parts:

1. The Torsoardall-sr2.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. The torso of the Ardall SR2 is designed to fold in half, making it even easier to mount upon the horse and also allowing the Ardall to be used at varying heights upon the horse. This enables it to be used on a very nervous, spooky horse at a lower height until the horse becomes acustomed and comfortable with its presence, at which point in the horse's training, the Ardall SR2 can subesequently be un folded and used at full height.

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 SR2 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 SR2 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 SR2 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 SR2, one on each side, and secured with straps.

    We purchased the SR2 after giving up with the home made trousers stuffed with hay and lying on they backs and being thrown off.
    It is a obvious choice you could brake yourself or carry on and break in your horse, also we can use it to school and exercise our other horse's

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2015

    At Norris Horsemanship we start colts. We ordered the SR2 and had high hopes that this addition to our arsenal of tack would prove itself quite handy! The SR2 arrived and we tried it out the first day we opened it and it definitely did its job. We are very impressed with the worksmanship and general idea of the SR2 and are very greatful we found Ardall!!

  6. Fantastic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2014

    I bought this for my breaking and schooling yard and it is literally a lifesaver. I enjoy my job immensely but the Ardall(or Thompson) as we call him has just made it even better!

    Similar to Ronalds story had a very difficult horse I was breaking and it was not going well. One week of the dummy and I was riding her loose around the arena and walking up and down the laneways with her!

    The Ardall has been a very great help to ourselves , ive broken and schooled horses for 30 years , allways being the dummy myself ! but now and again you come across a frightened or very sensitive horse which proves to be very untrusting . Ive a young stallion at the moment whom ive tryed to back for over three weeks , he has been out in public , been shown since foal , owners done all ground work ,!!working perfect on lunge in school and very easy to handle and work around but mounting him has proven very difficult , ive been on the ground every day !!!! , has his back checked and started again with the ardall , ive now after one week managed to get on , and be lunged and walked all round my school without any bucking , so as far as it goes , i will be recomending this dummy to any training yard as a must have !!!!
