Buy safety stirrups online - what to do and how to pick the right stirrups

Nowadays, we handle many things online: banking, buying clothes, and even ordering pizza can be done online from the comfort of your own home. Equestrians tend to use online orders for their advantage too, as many riders order tack and riding clothes from their favorite tack shops instead of visiting them. But did you know, that you can buy safety stirrups online as well?

In fact, buying stirrups online is very easy and you have many options available to you. In this article, we will look at how you can buy safety stirrups online and what kind of things you should consider.

How to buy safety stirrups online

The very first step is to compare different types of safety stirrups and to figure out what are the best safety stirrups for adults that suit your needs. For instance, dressage riders may want to pick different types of stirrups than showjumpers, and vice versa.

Our Ophena S stirrups are loved by dressage riders, too.

First, figure out if you would like to buy magnetic safety stirrups, peacock stirrups, quick release stirrups or something else. You should take into account your preference for stirrups, for instance, their material, color, grip, and possible safety features. Another thing that is worth considering, is the price of the stirrups: some stirrups may be a bit more expensive, but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

After finding a few possible candidates, you should take some time to read customer's reviews on them. Riders tend to be very honest about their purchases, so pick a pair that has gotten amazing reviews (like our Ophena S), and consider whether they would be a suitable option for you.

How can I buy safety stirrups online?

After picking the pair you want to purchase, add it in the cart. However, before you complete your purchase, you should double-check if you are allowed to return your stirrups in case you don't like them. After all, when you buy safety stirrups online, it can be difficult to know if they are going to be the perfect fit for you.

For instance, our Ophena S and Ophena S Pro magnetic safety stirrups have a full 60-day money-back guarantee: if you don't like the stirrups, you can always return them for a full refund. This way, you can rest assured that you will be happy with your purchase.

Then, complete your purchase and wait for your stirrups to arrive. Take them for a test ride and feel them out - if you like them, great! If you don't try out something else.

What to do if I don't like the stirrups?

Whenever you buy something online, you have the right to return your product. In some cases, the time limit in which you have to return it is shorter than in others. Also, you should remember that the product has to be in pristine condition still with tags in order for you to get your money back.

Usually, you have to return the product within 30 or 60 days. For Ophena safety stirrups the time is 60 days, but for others, it may be shorter. So, if you notice that you don't like your safety stirrups (wherever you bought them from), you can return them and ask for your money back.

Note: Always remember to read the return policy before buying (and possibly returning) your purchase. Return policies vary a lot depending on a company, so take a few minutes to read these policies before you make a purchase.


Picking the right kind of safety stirrups is important. You should like them and they should also be as safe as possible. The best way to find great safety stirrups is to read reviews - take some time to read reviews by our customers, too.
