How to fit the RS-tor

We get many questions about fitting the RS-tor - here are the key points to follow:

 

1) Remove your stirrups and attach the RS-tor straps over your stirrup bars.

2) Replace the stirrups & adjust the strap lengths, so the first 'O' ring sits centrally.

 

THE LENGTH SETTING IS CRITICAL

 

1) When seated and holding the RS-tor handle, hold your arm horizontally in any direction...

2) If the strap is not tight, you must reduce both of the stirrup strap lengths equally.

3) If the strap is not allowing you to straighten your arm, then loosen the stirrup straps.

 

NOTE: The strap should tension during the last straightening of your arm; this allows you complete natural movement but prevents you from going beyond your natural riding position.

 

If you are propelled in any direction beyond your natural position, you can lean on or pull the RS-tor handle to restore you to your seated position.

 

TEST: Once the lengths have been set to your reach, test the RS-tor by leaning forward (as if the horse has bucked) and push your weight onto the RS-tor handle, keeping your arm straight - you should barely move from your saddle, and the recoil of the RS-tor strap will assist you.
