Named after one of Kate Negus’ sponsored riders, the clever loops are made from strong cord, English leather and have brass fittings, to coordinate with other Kate Negus items. To use, just slip the cord loops over the stirrup bars and pull forward. When in situ, the Double Ds can be used to replace broken D rings, or as an additional pair if the rider uses two products requiring this kind of attachment, such as a balance handle and breastplate.
Double Ds are available in black and chestnut and have a RRP of £12 per pair.
What a fab idea these are! Being a riding school, we use a balancing strap that is attached to the d rings (as shown) but in the past have had rather enthusiastic riders who have literally pulled the D rings off, for us to replace saddles is a costly affair so a product like this is a god send. It is a very handy product to have, it was also beautifully made. The Pony Club members had lots of fun working out just what it was made for to start with.
Kate Negus says: “Our Double Ds have been really popular since their launch and are used by people whose saddles don’t have d rings at all, or if you want to use two products that need them, like a balance strap and a breastplate.”
