How to Solo-Ride®
Unfold and drape Solo-Ride over your horse’s withers with the stirrup hanging on the left.
On the right side of your horse, adjust the length of the snap end to fit around your horse’s right leg and attach it to the D-ring high up close to your horse’s withers.
Back on the left side of your horse, adjust your stirrup to your desired length and height. Mount your horse.
Undo the snap from the D-ring, letting the snap fall. Gather Solo-Ride up and put back into waist pack for next time.
