English translation:bar straps
Explanation:
Well, this is a bit of a guess, but I think this might be connected with gymnastics.
There's the pommel horse, rings, vaulting, parallel bars and horizontal bars and I suppose "Barren-Riemen" are some kind of training accessory.
If this should fit your context, I found a website mentioning and showing "bar straps", which I assume must be "Barren-Riemen" (See link below).

Hope this helps

agree  Michael Sebold: Sounds plausible - I've certainly seen gymnasts use something along these lines.
