Should I buy safety stirrups online?

When you buy a saddle, most of the time you will have to buy your stirrup leathers and safety stirrups separately. In this day and age, we tend to do many things online, including shopping for our tack. So, it would only be natural to consider buying safety stirrups online – but is this what you should do and what other things you should consider?

Buying your safety stirrups

There are many different types of safety stirrups out there. You can find flexible joint stirrups, peacock stirrups, magnetic safety stirrups and so many more. However, as simple as buying stirrups may seem, not all stirrups fit everyone’s needs.

When you are buying your safety stirrups, you have two options: you can buy them at a store or online.

Buying your stirrups at a store is very simple: you will get to look at the stirrups, ask questions and you can even return the stirrups after trying them out if you decide that they are not for you.

However, when you buy safety stirrups online, you should ask yourself a couple of questions:

  • Will these stirrups suit my needs?
  • Are they the correct color?
  • Are they tested and safe?
  • Can I return them if I don’t like them?

Ophena has taken all this into consideration and this is why we have created our comprehensive FAQ-page and you should also check out the post about most asked questions about safety stirrups. And the best of all, we have a 60-day money-back guarantee, so if for some reason you decide you don’t want to keep your safety stirrups (which we doubt!), you can return your stirrups and you will get a full refund.

Why should I buy magnetic safety stirrups?

Magnetic safety stirrups are the new trend on the market. Many companies manufacture different types of safety stirrups, but we at Ophena have created the best magnetic safety stirrups that ensure you will be released from your stirrups in case of an accident.

Our magnetic safety stirrups have a magnet at the bottom of the magnetic insoles (that are included in the price of the stirrups) and in the stirrup. They pull towards each other ensuring that you will always have your foot in the correct spot. Also, the open side makes it easy for your foot to release should you fall off. In order to prevent your foot from sliding out of the stirrup by accident, we have also equipped the stirrups with a foot stopper.

We understand that magnetic safety stirrups raise a lot of questions – this is why you can easily order your stirrups online with us, try them out and should you not fall in love with them, you can return them for a full refund.


Buying your safety stirrups online is tempting and easy – just ensure that whatever kind of stirrups you order, you can return them and get your money back if you don’t like them.
