The Safety Stirrup™ with patent-pending 360° double safety release.

Made to keep you safe, again and again.

Double Release
A Safety Masterpiece

Ophena A is designed to keep you safe. The outer side is closed by a fully removable silicone piece: The Twister. The Twister can be released at two independent points and in any direction - thanks to our patent-pending 360° double safety release technology.

The Twister
Easy to twist in. Simple to be safe.

It may look like a simple piece, but has a complex, highly functional geometry. Anchor-like ends that perfectly match their aluminium counterpart. Keeping the Twister in place while riding, and releasing it in case of a fall.

The Ultimate Grip
Control Your Motion

Ophena’s established diamond tread provides you with optimal grip and maximum control - for an amazing feel. It looks great, helps you perform and makes you more confident in the saddle.

Ophena's 60-day money-back guarantee
Try them for 60 days

We want you to be fully satisfied. Therefore you can try our stirrups for up to 60 days. Use them as you like and return them for a full refund if you are not satisfied.

Gentle Design
Integrated Dampening

The Ophena A has been carefully designed to provide flexibility and soft dampening. Right below the tread is a cushioning element to provide comfort for your knees, without disturbing the design. Further, the entire stirrup flexes to absorb harder impacts.

Super tolle und Hochwertige Bügel

Die Verarbeitung als auch die Rutschfestigkeit in den Bügel sind super! Großes plus, der seitliche Gummibügel der sich im Notfall löst! Richtig tolle Sache!

Restlos Begeistert

Ich bin von den neuen Ophena A Steigbügeln begeistert. Leider musste ich die magnetische Variante wieder abgeben, da die Bügel nicht auf dem Turnier erlaubt sind. Jetzt habe ich die Ophena A an beiden Sätteln und bin restlos begeistert. Ich habe durch das Profil der Bügel einen super Halt und durch den flexiblen Schenkel fühle ich mich auch sehr sicher. Ich würde sie jederzeit wieder kaufen.

Tolle Bügel

Ich war schon mit den Magnetbügeln mehr als zufrieden und habe bei denen einen noch besser Halt, habe mir die neuen Ophena Bügel nur geholt, weil diese eben auf Turnier erlaubt sind. Ich bin sehr sehr zufrieden, die Seitenteile gehen wunderbar einfach auf. Vielen Dank dafür, ich reite nun mit dem Gewissen, dass ich nicht im Bügel hängen bleiben kann.

Fantastic, so so pleased. We bought these as the pony club wouldn’t allow the Ophena Pro stirrups. Have had the A’s for a week and have had one fall! The side just popped out and all was well! I’ve searched for a pony club legal stirrup for months, ones that releases the foot with ease as my daughter is very lightweight….this stirrup didn’t disappoint.

Ophena A for Amazing!

Received my beautifully packaged safety stirrup in just a few days from placing my order and took my first evaluation ride yesterday. My discipline is Dressage. The stirrups themselves are beautiful and the weight and angle is perfect. The wider footbed was stabilizing and it took no time to get used to. I loved them on my very first ride and will be buying a second pair for my other horse and saddle. Finally a safety stirrup you can show in. Thank you Ophena for these precision made beautiful safety stirrups! Even the best horses can be unpredictable at times, you can still take a fall, but at least now I can have confidence that I won’t get hung in the stirrup or dragged. Fabulous product! Thank you!
