Watch step-by-step instructions on the proper installation and usage of the Unisit Sit Strap
As with any activity with a horse, "safety first" should be your guiding motto. Below are some Do's and Don'ts when training with the Unisit.
Place the strap around the rider's back with the padded back support against the lower back and both "ends" of the strap resting on either side of the rider and the horse.
Allow the ends of the strap to hang over the rider's thighs on both sides. Place the metal safety release buckle face-up on the rider's right thigh.
Attach the right swivel snap hook of the strap to the small D-ring on the saddle.
Place the rider's right wrist through the wrist strap loop. There are two snap options for adjustment. The smaller adjustment is appropriate for most riders, and another if you have larger hands or are wearing a heavy winter jacket or gloves.
Allow the strap to run down and hang along the inside of the rider's thigh (it will turn)
From the other side, reach under the horse and attach the straps together using the D-rings. Tighten snugly. Use the keeper to hold any excess strapping.
Attach the left swivel snap hook of the strap to the small D-ring on the saddle.
The strap is now snug around the horse. Now you'll want to adjust it to the rider's body. Have the rider lean forward slightly and tighten the strap around the rider’s back. It should be quite snug.
This is what the properly attached Unisit will look like from both sides of the horse and rider.
