The equine world constantly meets new technology that can help with horse care and our safety. For instance, magnetic rugs, Welltex technology blankets and clothes, magnetic boots and so on, can really help horses as well as riders feel better and perform better.
One of the recent inventions are magnetic safety stirrups. They have proven their worth many times and are extremely reliable and stylish.
What are magnetic safety stirrups?
Magnetic safety stirrups are a new invention that only a very few brands carry and manufacture. Our brand, Ophena, is one of the few. Our magnetic safety stirrups have a magnet in the bottom of the stirrups which pulls towards the magnet in your magnetic insoles. In addition, the other side of the stirrup is open, allowing your foot to release easily, should you encounter an accident.
Our stirrups come in different colors: silver, black and gold. This is what our stirrups look like.
These stirrups come with a Smart Attach -system to make it super easy to attach your stirrup onto the stirrup leather. The Smart Attach -system looks like this:
So, you have no need to remove the entire stirrup leather just to put on your new stirrups. They are easy to attach and detach, should you want to take them out for cleaning, for instance.
In order to use your magnetic safety stirrups properly, you also need magnetic insoles. They are inserted into your boot - no hassle!
What are the benefits of safety stirrups?
Safety stirrups are excellent for everyone. When a rider falls off their horse, there's always the risk of the rider getting caught in the stirrups. This can cause extremely bad accidents - this is why safety stirrups in general are essential.
However, with magnetic safety stirrups, your foot stays exactly where it should when you're riding. Also, as the other side is open, your foot will easily release in case of an accident. Our Ophena S and Ophena T magnetic safety stirrups are also equipped with a foot stopper, so you foot will never slide out of the stirrup.
Our magnetic safety stirrups can also teach you to relax your leg and keep your foot in the correct position at all times.
Magnetic safety stirrups are not only safe and beneficial, they are also stylish and trendy. You'll stay safe when riding and of course, everyone will envy your beautiful stirrups!
