Fitting Instructions

Parts of the Rump

How to fit the Leather T into the saddle gullet




Attach the Rump to the centre strap and adjust the length so the fluorescent yellow /\ sits snugly either side of the horse’s tail and the red fluorescent flap hangs part way down the tail.

The centre strap can be cut to length and heat sealed.  Please remember to measure twice and cut once


  1. Place the side straps underneath the second and third girth strap and attach to the first.  Adjust to allow some slack in the side straps to accommodate the back and forth movement of the horses’ hind leg.  You should be able to place a hand on each of the horses’ buttocks with sufficient room to turn your hands outwards (the same position as for fitting a throat lash or fillet string).


  1. Do not fit the Parson’s Rump tight to the horses hind leg, as this will not allow the movement of the hind leg. As a general rule of thumb, the first strap should be on or behind the horses’ point of hip and the yellow Reflexite should sit either side of the horses’ tail.  


  1. The side straps should be placed towards the top of the girth strap, so they angle down.  However, the position can be adjusted up or down the girth strap, to ensure the Parsons Rump stays in place.

Fitting the Double Loop Strap

Place the D in the  centre cantle of the saddle

Loop the long straps around the saddle panels

Fasten the straps into the tri-slider and gently tighten until the loops are firmly in place ensuring the D stays in the centre of the cantle/gullet



Please email me if you have any questions about the fitting the Rump (with a couple of pictures) I will be happy to advice.
