How do magnetic insoles work in magnetic safety stirrups?

Magnetic safety stirrups have become the way of the future. Equestrians are more and more aware of the risks that come with riding horses, and both amateurs and professionals purchase safety stirrups in addition to helmets and safety vests to ensure their safety in case of a fall. 

Magnetic insoles of magnetic safety stirrups


In order for magnetic safety stirrups to work, the stirrups need to attach to some magnetic counterpart. Ophena magnetic safety stirrups attach to magnetic insoles: we will look at this more closely in this article.

What are magnetic insoles?

Magnetic safety stirrups offer ultimate safety for riders. In case of a fall, the release mechanism ensures that the rider will not get stuck in the stirrups and get dragged behind the horse. Ophena S and Ophena S Pro both have an open design that releases the rider's foot safely in case of a fall.

The magnetic connection, on the other hand, has been designed to keep the rider's foot in the correct place. However, the magnet in the safety stirrups needs an opposite part to pull towards. 

You may think that the rider may need special boots for this. But that's not the case for Ophena stirrups, which come with magnetic insoles that you can slide into your own boots. So, in other words, no need to buy new boots.

This is how simple the magnetic insoles work:

Magnetic safety stirrups vs regular stirrups

Why should you buy magnetic safety stirrups, then? The simple answer is enhanced safety. Let us explain a little bit more.

Regular stirrups have no safety mechanism of any kind. This means that in case of a fall, there is a chance that your foot will get stuck in the stirrups. However, safety stirrups include a release mechanism that releases your foot, should you ever get stuck in your stirrups.

Now, when we take it one step further, magnetic safety stirrups include a safety mechanism and a magnetic connection that can have many benefits. Magnetic safety stirrups can...:

  • ... help with improved posture and stability.
  • ... decrease joint and knee pain.
  • ... help position the foot correctly.
