Goer Straighteners are designed particularly for horses who are narrow through the chest and provide an alternative to Bar Spreaders. Like Bar Spreaders, the Goer Straighteners assist in keeping the legs wider while racing so that the horse does not knock its knees or otherwise interfere with keeping a straight stride. They are made from tubing that has been reinforced with strong nylong webbing, which gives a cushioned effect when used on the horse without any loss of strength.
This is used to help widen the gait behind. It is used for square trotters who travel too straight behind, or pacers who tend to crossfire. The foam covered core fits between the back legs. The two straps clip to dees on each side of the saddle, with the single strap attaching into the crupper. Care should be taken to keep the foam clean to help avoid chafing. Black
Like Bar Spreaders, Guiders are designed particularly for horses who are narrow through the chest and provide an alternative to Bar Spreaders. They assist in keeping the legs wider while racing so that the horse does not knock its knees or otherwise interfere with keeping a straight stride.

Bar Spreaders are designed particularly for horses who are narrow through the chest. The foam covered loops are placed around the front legs and sit at the top in the elbow. They are either fastened to the shaft of the sulky, or can also be hung over the wither with the use of a Neck Support, which provides a little bit more upward lift. Spreaders assist in keeping the legs wider while racing so that the horse does not knock its knees or otherwise interfere with keeping a straight stride.
Made with thicker foam.
The Neck Support is used in conjuction with Bar Spreaders. It is essentially a "carrier" to hold the spreaders up on the horse in the event that the trainer has not chosen to connect them to the sulky. The strap of the bar spreaders loops through the ring at either end of the neck support, while the support itself rests over the wither of the horse. It is padded for greater comfort.
These straps are used in conjuction with Cords & Pins. The Hopple Shotener Extensions are buckled into the hopple connecting straps, and the pins are inserted. This shortens the hopples for the beginning of the race to prevent the horse from breaking gait. Each strap measures 20cm Sold as a Pair
A Hopple Shortener Extension is buckled into the connecting strap buckle, with the pin fed through to hold it in place. This shortens the hopples for the beginning of the race to prevent the horse from breaking gait. The PVC covered cord goes back to the sulky with a hand loop for the driver. When the driver is satisfied that the horse is balanced in its gait, the cord is pulled to release the pins and the hopples are immediately lengthened, allowing the horse to lengthen its stride.
Made from heavy duty elastic with Zilco strapping ends and stainless steel buckles. The straps are attached to the hopples next to the hopple connecting straps. They are adjusted to be shorter than the connecting straps, so that the horse "feels" the hopples, but the elastic allows the horse to stride out to the connecting strap length. This setup is designed to encourage the horse to become better balanced in his gait. Short (30cm) - Pair $50.90 Long (40cm) - $50.90
As the name suggests, connecting straps are designed to connect the front and rear hopples on the same side. These are made from Zilco's well known synthetic strapping, feature stainless steel fittings & edge stitching, and are measured from end of buckle to end of strap. All sizes have generous adjustment to ensure an optimum fit. Short - 137cm (54") - $50.90 Standard - 155cm (62") - $55.60 Long - 180cm (72) - $58.60
