When you saddle up your horse and get on with your ride, you probably don't think about your stirrups that much. However, they are an essential part of your tack and you should always pick the kind of stirrups that suit your discipline and your needs.
For instance, dressage riders may want to pick elegant and balanced stirrups, whereas for showjumpers and cross country riders, the safety aspect is at utmost importance.
Ophena magnetic safety stirrups are the latest innovative invention that help riders of all levels all over the world to stay safe when riding. And they look beautiful, too. In this article, we'll look at the top reason why you should get yourself a pair as well.
1. Easy magnets
Our magnetic safety stirrups have magnets in the bottom of the stirrup and in your magnetic insoles, that you insert in your boot. These magnets pull towards each other, which makes it easier to keep your foot in one place. And, should you at any point lose your stirrup while riding, the magnets will immediately start pulling towards each other, making it easier to get your stirrup back.
2. Open side
The outside of the stirrup is open, which means that in case of an accident, your foot will release very quickly. This is essential, as getting caught in your stirrup may result in serious injuries.
3. Foot stopper
And don't worry, you don't have to worry about your foot sliding off the stirrup: if your foot gets too close to the edge of the stirrup, our foot stopper will keep your foot in.
