Evo Safe Balance Neck Strap
Permitted for British Dressage, British Show Jumping, British Eventing and The Pony Club, the Evo Safe Neck Strap from Evoequine is specifically designed to meet the FEI Ruling 2019 ‘Neck straps if used on cross-country must be attached either to the breastplate or the saddle’.
Connecting the neck strap prevents risk of it falling forward, preventing a potentially fatal injury. However, connection also prevents rotation and can give shoulder proprioception turning the 'Neck Strap' into a training and performance aid.
A neck strap is an often under-appreciated piece of tack, yet can be extremely useful for every rider. Whether you’re getting on a horse you don’t know, or someone new is coming to ride your horse for the first time. A neck strap is a useful security rein. It’s a great tool if you become unbalanced or if your horse throws an awkward jump as you won’t pull them in the mouth.
Neck straps aren’t just for use at home. They are permitted in all types of unaffiliated competitions, whereas martingales and breastplates are not always, particularly in dressage. At the higher levels of affiliated competition (FEI), neck straps must be attached to the saddle to prevent them slipping forward to the horse’s head. The Evo Safe neck strap fully conforms to the requirements for FEI and British Eventing.
The neck strap can help:
- Keeping your hands in front of the saddle
- Sense of security
- Extra balance
- Ridding youngsters
- Sitting a big jump
- For home and away
- Confidence on unknown horses
In fact every rider, no matter how experienced, can benefit from having a neck strap to grab when they need it.
The Evo Safe Balance neck strap has sold out five times over the last two years. It is an extremely popular piece of tack that offers comfort and style with a completely adjustable reenforced rolled leather handle for the ridder to hold onto. This can be left flat or raised for ease of handling. The wide deluxe soft gel padding literally wraps around the horses conformation and gives comfort to the chest on application.
The chest and saddle clips are duel sided offering adjustment of fit and adaption. This neck strap is not only functional it is stylish and has a wow factor. The leather is butter soft and flexible. * Twin size adjustment buckles for better balance/reduced rotation and no loose flappy straps on which to catch a rein. Made with eco vegetable tan so no harmful chemicals have been used.

Please balm before use to protect the new leather. Remove dirt with a damp cloth and allow to dry naturally away from heat sources after each use. Re-Condition after cleaning and use to protect. Be carful not to spray Deet Fly sprays on the leather as this may cause damage to the leather.
Note: This is a balance aid. It will not stop you from falling off your horse if you lose your balance out of the saddel. But it will help you stay in the saddle for those spooks/ leaps and give you some extra stability in the saddle.
