Adaptive Riding Institute is the leading pioneer in the field of adaptive riding equipment. State-of-the-Art designs include custom support systems and safety devices, working in combination to achieve the greatest possible comfort for both the rider and horse.
Custom made saddles and other adaptive equipment makes horseback riding and horse camping possible for many who were previously believed to be unable to ride. Adaptive riding equipment is an essential part of making trail riding adventures not only possible, but safer for people with disabilities.
Careful thought and planning is essential to the development of adaptive equipment. Simply adding a seat belt or raised back rest to a conventional saddle can have disastrous results in the event of an accident. All equipment should include safety features such as quick release buckles, break away devices, and a double redundant safety system. Since saddles are not stationary weight, speed, motion, and impact, should be carefully considered during the design and testing process.
All equipment is provided including ASTM approved helmets.
