Double Position Swing Bar
The new L&R® Double Position Swing Bar allows the rider to change stirrup length to maintain a balanced position in the saddle while riding different disciplines. For example, Jumping or Trotting hills with a shorter stirrup, the front groove balances the riders more forward position. For Trail Riding or Endurance, the rider has a more vertical position and the back groove provides a more stable balance point.
