Improve your foot position while riding

Why a good foot position is so important

A good foot position is important because it affects leg position, your seat and overall posture. The stirrups should be right under the ball of your foot and your heels should be down. From there, your heels, hips and shoulders should be in alignment and your foot position plays an important role in this.

A poor foot position leads to misalignment, which worsens your balance and seat. A good foot position makes for a steadier, calmer leg, a better seat and more relaxed joints, which also improves your body's natural shock-absorbing properties and helps prevent injury.

Our magnetic stirrups have helped thousands of riders improve their foot position and overall riding. They magnetically attract your feet and hold them in the correct position, improving your leg position and seat. They also prevent your feet from slipping and make you feel more secure. With so much positive feedback from riders of all ages and disciplines, we're sure our stirrups can help you improve your foot position, too.

The perfect gift!

Brought these for my other half for Christmas! She is over the moon with them! I had them engraved with her name on and she was made up! They put her foot in the perfect position which she struggled with normally after having surgery. Would highly recommend these stirrups for lots of reasons! Worth the investment! Thank you Ophena

The best stirrups!

I love them! From a safety point of view, after a few falls which I am fine with, the stirrups are perfect, they come right off, it's magic! From an aesthetic point of view, they are incredible! And finally from a practical point of view, they helped me in the fixity of my legs, in my position, and just for that I thank Ophena for having invented them! A great invention!!! Thank you very much!

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 my confidence. These stirrups are not only safe (your foot definitely won’t get stuck in them) but have really helped me to regain that confidence I 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!

Bought a pair for my 10 year old daughter and took two different soles. A stronger magnet for winter shoes and one with a weaker magnet for summer shoes , they made a big difference to her riding as her foot always sits right and she can never get stuck when she falls off . We are super happy, something I can recommend.

Phenomenal invention!

Using these stirrups completely eliminates situations like loosing your stirrups or correcting your foot position in a stirrup while riding. You are free of these problems and can focus on other aspects of your riding because of course - there is always so much more to achieve! I LOVE THESE STIRRUPS

A great riding experience

I have been using my Ophena stirrups for a few weeks now and I can say that I am thrilled. The position of the feet in the stirrups is perfect and unlike conventional stirrups, my hips are not blocked. I bought them because of the safety aspect. I was totally surprised by the great riding feeling and I wouldn't want to do without them.

My daughter loves them

And I love that she won’t get tangled in the stirrups in the event of an unintended dismount. They were shipped quickly and had good instructions. We trimmed the insoles slightly and they work great to keep her feet in the correct position. We highly recommend!

I have had a few accidents and developed a fear and the Ophena gives me the security of not getting caught in the stirrups again, apart from that they always stay perfectly on the ball of the foot. I just love these stirrups 🥰

Before trying them I was a bit apprehensive, but after riding in them I was pleasantly surprised put my foot in the correct position in stirrup. Was a bit weird trying to get my foot off but I managed. Will definitely be buying my niece some for her riding lessons 👍👍

Love them

Bought these as I have a habit of moving my foot in my stirrups and then spend ages trying to get it back in the right position. Problem solved. Also makes me feel so much safer jumping as if I get left behind. I can recover as still have my feet safely in my stirrups.

Super stirrups

Absolutely fabulous. I was slightly sceptical about the effectiveness of the stirrups and wondered if the cost would be justified but 2 months of use has convinced me that it was the best purchase ever made. Lower leg and foot position has always been my problem. Ophena magnetic stirrups have helped me enormously. Recommend them highly.
