Prevent losing your stirrups - even in hectic situations

Why riders lose stirrups and how Ophena can help

Losing your stirrups is not only annoying, it can also be dangerous. Because it can easily throw you off balance and even cause you to fall off your horse.

There are many things that can cause you to lose your stirrups. Maybe your horse bucks or rears up and you lose them. Or you lose your concentration for a moment and no longer have a good grip. Or your feet are in the wrong position, you lack strength or... Whatever the reason, it is good to know that you are not alone. Many riders struggle with losing their stirrups, which usually means they have to stop and put their feet back in the stirrups - a task in itself.

Here's the good news: Ophena's magnetic stirrups have helped thousands of riders become better riders by avoiding the loss of stirrups. The magnets hold the stirrups in place so you never have to worry about losing them again. They even keep your feet in the right position, which improves your leg position, seat and balance.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced rider, Ophena's magnetic stirrups can prevent losing your stirrups, help you maintain control and improve your riding.


How magnetic stirrups help other riders not to lose their stirrups

Best horse related purchase I've made

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

Everything was simply amazing!

I bought these stirrups for my granddaughter, as a Christmas gift, as she seemed to be losing a stirrup on landing off a jump. She was so over whelmed when she opened her gift, she burst into tears of happiness. I cannot recommend this company or it’s product high enough. From the word go, they were extremely helpful, professional and obliging. The stirrups arrived quickly and the packaging is to die for, it was simply beautiful. Package well would be an understatement, everything is such an amazing quality. The stirrups themselves are sooo beautiful and the magnification is brilliant. I absolutely loved them, in every respect. They are well worth the price and anyone making the purchase will not be disappointed, you cannot put a value on safety and these really work. That you so much Ophena, for an excellent product!

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 more confident and secure seat. I will never ride in anything else, such a shame they are not BD legal

Very good product

I am very happy with my Ophena stirrups. On several occasions they have saved my life, when my horse has swerved or stopped at the obstacle, and I have not lost my stirrups as is often the case on these occasions. In addition they have a very nice design.

Ophena Stirrups

Superb! The safety aspect of these stirrups is obvious and immediate. To the rider, particularly a showjumper, they are a gift from heaven. Never worry about losing a stirrup over a fence again.

Verified Review by Brian F.

Corresponds exactly to my ideas

At first I was very unsure about buying stirrups for such a price. But I have to say that they really deliver what they promise. Apart from the safety aspect, these stirrups are an enormous relief for me. I can concentrate on other things while riding than on not losing the stirrups all the time. I also ordered a pair of inserts in my daughter's size and it is a huge relief for her as well.

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 lower leg position 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.

Ophena Mag net8c Stirrups

Absolutely amazing. I am new to riding and still learning. Had my horse for 2years. Struggled with the canter as went into fear as would often lose my stirrups. This nolonger happens with the magnetic stirrups. Consequently I have been able to focus on my canter and keeping my heals down. Now in the space of three months my canter has so improved. I am jumping and have learnt light seat canter. These stirrups have made an immense difference to my riding and pushed my learning forward so much more quickly. I will never look back.

The best stirrup

Since I've been using this stirrup, I'm much looser in the hip and leg. Before, I always lost a stirrup or didn't have a firm grip. I am. 1000% satisfied

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

I was doubtful these would do the trick but let me tell you. They are amazing. I use to always loose my right stirrup while jumping and I haven’t lost one yet. They are sturdy and give me great confidence.

Ophena Stirrups Rating

I have been using the stirrups for 2 months now and am very satisfied. The force of the magnet is perfectly adjusted so that the stirrup holds on the boots, but you can also get out of the stirrup easily. The design is also beautiful and people always talk about the stirrups. My riding feeling has also improved considerably, as the "firm" stirrups give me a lot of support. This has also made my leg even calmer. The Ophena stirrups are also great for jumping. After jumping, it's easy to lose a stirrup, which no longer happens. Perfect for a good riding feeling and hold. I would always recommend the stirrups and spend the money again every time, because they are worth every penny.

Dear Anton and Simon, I am really very happy with Ophena's stirrups! My horse still wants to make the occasional jump and I used to lose my stirrups with the chance of lying in the sand afterwards. That is now a thing of the past and I feel a lot more secure in the saddle. They are not only safe but also very nice, the personal inscription makes it complete! The packaging in which they are delivered also looks fantastic, so you can also give them as a present. I would definitely recommend them to any rider. With kind regards, Francis Weij

Exceptional product

This product has changed my life! I didn't buy it because I was afraid of getting stuck in the stirrup if I fell, but because when the horse is unsettled or swerves, I am always afraid of losing my stirrups and not having any support if something goes wrong. And also because I hate it when my stirrups shift in my foot and I have to put them back on. Now I don't have to worry about that at all. And this accessory has radically changed my serenity in the saddle. I even did my first CS0 competitions at 38 years old on 75 cm, it was a child's dream, and as they are authorized (at least at my level), it greatly reassured me and helped me to ride my courses (I finished without fault at my 2 competitions). In short, I highly recommend this product! It is really worth the price.

Ophena stirrups

The stirrups has really helped my riding. Before I couldn’t keep my stirrups on, but then I got Ophena, and now I can’t live without them. So I would say that it’s all the money worth. And btw I love the packeting.

Game changers

These stirrups have changed my riding in the last few months! I have some nerve damage in my foot from when i broke my leg, so i would get pins & needles feeling in my foot and would constantly lose my stirrup bc i couldn’t feel my foot sometimes. These magnetic stirrups help me so much. I no longer get that tingling in my foot nor do i lose the stirrup. It helps my leg stay long and my heel down, without the pressure on my foot - i used to have to “jam” my heel down to keep it down. Now it’s just down in a more natural way without being “forced” or “jammed” which in turn feels good and has helped my riding.

The stirrups are great. I like to use them, mainly for jumping, but also in dressage it helps me to keep my leg long without having to concentrate on not losing the stirrup. Because that just doesn't happen. The quality is great and so is the support, a 10000 times from me 👍 I love them!
