Safety Stirrups for English and Western saddles

SmartRider UK’s Escape breakaway safety stirrups come in 8 colours and can be used for both English and Western saddles. 




The stirrups have weighting guidance, however they do not fall apart unless your foot is in the position of being caught, whatever the weighting. For extreme sports in which you might deliberately hang upside down in the stirrups, the heavy weight will give slightly more resistance to breaking away
