What are the benefits of Ophena magnetic safety stirrups?

Ophena's magnetic safety stirrups have received excellent reviews from amateurs and professionals. There is a very good reason for those reviews too: our safety stirrups offer some amazing benefits that you won't find anywhere else. 

While there are a ton of different brands and styles of safety stirrups, Ophena stands out by offering features that no other brand does. 

In this article, we will look at the best benefits of Ophena magnetic safety stirrups and tell you how you can level up your riding experience with our stirrups.

Soft magnetic connection with Ophena

When you purchase a pair of magnetic safety stirrups from Ophena, they will come with a pair of magnetic insoles that slide into your boots. Their counterpart is in the stirrups and when you mount the horse, the magnets pull towards each other, creating a soft connection that can make your riding experience better.

Ophena offers a unique magnetic safety system that has numerous advantages and benefits:

  • Decreases the risk of losing a stirrups
  • Stirrups follow your feet
  • Keeps your foot in the correct position
  • Excellent grip
  • Easier release from stirrups in case of a fall

With the magnetic connection, you will be able to keep your stirrups in place easier, decreasing the risk of losing your stirrups. This is especially useful in showjumping as losing your stirrup in the middle of a course can increase the risk of falling off.

The magnetic connection will also ensure that your stirrups follow your feet at all times. Again, especially in showjumping, you wil notice how useful it is. You will have an easier time keeping the stirrups in the correct spot even when jumping over higher fences.

Thanks to the magnets, your foot will stay in place throughout your ride. The correct foot position will also affect the position of your lower leg and even knee and hip. You might also notice that you're better balanced and sit in a better posture, simply because of your correct foot position.

Our magnetic safety stirrups, Ophena S and Ophena S Pro both include excellent treading for better grip. However, if you want to elevate your grip and you expect a little bit more, we recommend Ophena S Pro.

Last but definitely not least, our magnetic safety stirrups also help you to release your foot easier in case of an accident. This is one of the main reasons why you should use magnetic safety stirrups every time you ride. 

Is that all?

Nope. That's not all!

Ophena's magnetic safety stirrups also feature a Smart Attach™-system that makes it super easy to attach and detach your safety stirrups. 

Here's how it works:

How do I use Ophena's magnetic safety stirrups?

Ophena's magnetic safety stirrups are just as easy to use as regular stirrups.

Next, install your magnetic safety stirrups onto your stirrup leathers by utilizing our super easy Smart Attach™-system.
