The RS-tor; fully approved and ideal for Jump Cross Competitions

Did you know the RS-tor rider safety aid has been officially approved as a product that can be used at Jump Cross events?  Jump Cross is a relatively new equestrian sport, combining cross country with show jumping; the course is set cross country style, with around 25 fences up and down hills, and though water. All the fences can be knocked down like show jumps, so competitors have the excitement of cross country, combined with the accuracy of show jumping. Classes vary in height – see for details.

Show Jumper, Jump Cross Instructor and British Horse Society Assistant Instructor Michaela Huntington is delighted that the product has gained official approval for the sport.

Michaela says “It’s great to know that the RS-tor rider safety aid is ‘legal’ for use in all Jump Cross activities and competitions, so all competitors can feel safe and secure when competing. I use and recommend the RS-tor to my clients, as it can definitely aid stability in the saddle and prevent a fall, especially on an unpredictable horse,” she says.

The RS-tor may also be used in affiliated British Show Jumping competitions but may only be used in the warm-up sections of affiliated British Dressage and British Eventing contests. It does not contravene Pony Club equipment rules but always check with your event’s ground jury if unsure.

The RS-tor is manufactured by PolyPads, RRP £44.99 – available in Childs, S and M/L sizes. (Adults over 5ft usually select M/L). Call 01842 752020 or visit to order – visit our Facebook page at
