The Ardall Safety Dummy is designed to help prevent serious rider injury when breaking and training horses.
Use it to train a horse to accept the presence of a rider, without putting a rider in the dangerous position of being on
The Ardall and Ardall SR2 also have significant benefits for ongoing training of performance horses, for muscle development
The Ardall Comprises of Four Main Parts:
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 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.
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.
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.
