Safety stirrup innovation and design have really taken off in the last few years. We've come along way from the humble Peacock Stirrup! But are you confused by all of the options? Here's our guide to some of 2019's best technical safety stirrups.
FreeJump Soft'Up Pro
The Soft'Up and Soft'Up Pro Stirrups from FreeJump feature a shock absorbing single branch and a flexible plastic outer which bends outwards, releasing your foot in the event of a fall. These stirrups have an extra wide grip foot plate to keep you comfortable in the saddle with the Pro version having small metal grips as an extra security. The stirrups have a 45 degree angle to give the perfect leg position and an open eye to allow for compatibility with any stirrup leather. They're available in a variety of traditional and vibrant colours to coordinate with any outfit.
