Improve your leg position

Why a good leg position is so important

A good (lower) leg position is very important for every rider. In fact, a better leg position leads to better balance, a more secure seat, and a huge improvement in your riding experience.

In a good position, your thighs are relaxed and your heels are better aligned with your hips. This creates a deeper seat and allows you to follow the horse's movements better. A calmer leg is also linked to relaxed joints, allowing the body's natural shock-absorbing abilities to work to prevent injury.

Our magnetic stirrups help riders around the world keep their feet in the correct position, which in itself can have a big impact on leg position. They also prevent your feet from slipping and take away the fear of getting caught in the stirrups. Over the years, our magnetic stirrups have helped countless riders improve their leg position, and we're sure they can help you too.

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. Lowerlegand footpositionhas always been my problem. Ophena magnetic stirrups have helped me enormously. Recommend them highly.

ophena stirrups improve horse movement

In my opinion, Ophen's stirrups are the safest stirrups in the world, but this is already known. However, as a saddle fitter, I see their other huge plus. Due to the fact that they follow thelegby themselves, the rider does not have to tighten the muscles by withdrawing thelegand performing dressage elements. This, in turn, allows for less stress on the horse in the area of ​​the saddle clip, leads to an elevation of the back and lightness of the horse's front limbs. I regret that they are not allowed to compete in dressage competitions, but I hope the FEI will be reasonable and it is a matter of time.

We love love love these stirrups. Bought for my 8 year old. They were really just bought for the safety aspect, so her foot couldn’t get stuck if she was tk fall, but they are so much h more than that. They’ve helped her heels stay down, her lowerlegposition and the help her keep her stirrups in situations where she would usually lose them (when pony over jumps or spooks) We have no regrets, no complaints, money well spent.

Extraordinary stirrups!!!

The Ophena S stirrups are great, thelegsare always perfectly positioned, they are very easy to put on and take off, even for a teenager, they are very easy to clean without having to remove the stirrup leathers and they are very beautiful. They are very easy to clean without having to remove the stirrup leathers and they look great. They are delivered very quickly in a very nice package. The only thing I would improve on is if they came with two thick fabric bags to protect them and the saddle even though they don't get damaged any more than any other stirrup leathers. In short, I love them and all those who have tried them only dream of one thing: to buy them for themselves...
