Most riders are familiar with peacock safety stirrups frequently used by young riders. Most graduate to regular irons quickly after gaining balance and training, but adults nowadays are looking for more safe choices (helmets in dressage, anyone?) because no one is immune to falling off. Options for adults up until now have been pretty limited, relying on cages to stop the foot from falling through or bent frames that give the rider a greater chance of freeing their foot if they have to.
Introducing: Equiline’s new S1 SAFE RIDING Safety Stirrup!
Not only is it customizable, it’s modern, sleek, and more safe.
The stirrup itself can twist forwards, or to the side to give the rider maximum ability to remove their foot no matter if they fall forwards, backwards, or sideways. The footrest includes rollers that help guide your foot to the side in case of a fall, as well as a cushioning system to comfort while riding. You can also easily switch out the side plates to customize your look without having to buy new stirrups. Overall, I’m excited to see these in the ring!
