Gain more confidence while riding

Why confidence is so important

Your confidence when you sit on the horse has a lot of effects. Low confidence has a negative effect on your seat, makes you stiffer and thus puts stress on your joints, and of course is also noticed by your horse, who is also greatly affected. All in all, low confidence probably also makes riding more dangerous.

Thousands of riders have used Ophena stirrups to gain confidence and improve their riding. Whether you are just starting out or you are an experienced rider, safety stirrups can help you feel more secure and confident in the saddle, giving you reassurance to enjoy your rides even more.

Ophena's magnetic safety stirrups have a unique design that keeps your foot in the right position, prevents it from slipping through, and provides a secure grip. This gives you the confidence to know that you'll stay in the saddle, even if your horse stumbles or bucks.

Whether you are trying to regain confidence after a riding accident, are a riding beginner, or you simply want to feel more secure on your horse, our safety stirrups can help.

These stirrups are worth every penny. My horse has a very bouncy gallop and I always struggled withbalanceand losing my stirrups along the way. Not only did these stirrups eliminate the losing stirrups part, but they really improved mybalanceand along with that myconfidencein the saddle.

Well worth the money, I will Never go back to regular stirrups, THANK YOU!

I thought there would be an adjustment period and I would need to go back to basics until I learned how to ride with these but that was not the case. From the first ride I felt much more freedom in my legs and hips. These stirrups give you theconfidenceto sink your weight down and help you really feel your horse without any imbalance. I would highly recommend to all friends, fellow trainers, and clients.

The most perfect stirrups

I just love the Ophena S stirrups 🤩 they have exceeded my wildest expectations and will definitely not return them 😉. For example I have been getting compliments about my seat since I started using them, also most importantly I have stopped loosing the stirrups while riding, gained a very stable feet/body while riding and they have also improved myconfidencea lot while riding. Therefore I can recommend them with all my heart to everyone (have been doing that already😉), weather they have problems with loose stirrups or not. P.s I received them in February and the service was excellent.

Game changer

They enable the leg to be in the correct position and actually allows a longer leg. The worry of lost stirrups is no longer an issue leading to a moreconfidentandsecureseat. I will never ride in anything else, such a shame they are not BD legal

And have a clear head again ....

Years ago, I fell several times in the countryside with the horse I was riding at the time. I have been riding another horse for two years now and falling has never been an issue again. However, I have not been able to clear my mind since the falls. Until I bought the Ophena stirrups and started riding with them. Can they prevent a fall ? No. But I no longer worry about not getting free from the horse. And in my case, that's enough for the head. Thank you Ophena.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Worth every $$

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my Ophena Stirrups! I couldn’t rate this product enough! I was a bit apprehensive at first because of the price. However, they are 100% worth every dollar. I am new to riding, just a little over a year, and after a few falls I really lost myconfidence These stirrups are not only safe (your foot definitely won’t get stuck in them) but have really helped me to regain thatconfidenceI needed, whilst improving my overall skill,balance& corrects my foot position. I recently had a horse try to buck me off, and the stirrups REALLY helped me to steady! I have learnt that horse riding involves SO many technical skills to think about all at once and these just make it that little (ALOT) easier while I learn!

Perfect for a confident return to riding

Ophéna stirrups are perfect for me. Following a fall from a horse which resulted in an open tibia-fibula fracture, due to a classic stirrup, the Ophéna stirrups allow me to get back on the horse withconfidencebecause my foot will not be trapped again in case of a fall. In addition, the magnet attachment allows me to have a stable support, which avoids calf and ankle pain during the rehabilitation phase. Thanks Ophéna, things are easier for me :)

At first I was worried about getting on and off with them but the instructions are so good it makes the set up easy and ensures correct positioning. I can now ride with moreconfidenceand not worry about getting stuck if anything happens. Plus, it's helping me with my schooling tremendously, I never lose a stirrup and my feet stay in the same place if I become unnalancd.

These Stirrups are an absolute GAME CHANGER!!!!!

The change in my position,balanceand generalconfidencewas instant with these stirrups! They’ve helped me feel sosecurethrough my leg and seat, I’m no longer fishing for my stirrups and knowing they are always there has helped myconfidenceimmensely. I can nowfocuson my upper body whilst strengthening my lower legs. They are so handy on the one occasion I lost a stirrup from becoming unseated during a gallop- a quick flick of my ankle and the magnet pulled the stirrup right back, allowing me to regain mybalancein what could’ve been a sticky situation. I would highly recommend these stirrups, they are worth every single penny. Thank you, Ophena!
