The days when every rider used a tradition fillis stirrup iron have gone. Technological advances have helped create stirrups which are lighter, have better grip, a wider foot bed, shock absorption, and more!
Of course, with these with these advances, the cost of stirrup irons has gone up.
To help you choose the best stirrups for you, the Horse Connection is happy to announce our Stirrup Test Ride Program. So now our customers can try our most popular stirrups on their own horses at their barns before buying!
It’s no surprise that stirrups have received a practical upgrade. Even with all the new available features, there’s still a likelihood of not liking the way they feel or how they influence your ride.
For a couple of our more technical stirrups, we offer a 1-week trial program. This includes the Flex-On Stirrups and the Tech Stirrups.
Flex-On stirrups are truly innovative. They incorporate several crimped steel pins to the treads to keep your foot from slipping; including added shock absorption and an incline for angry joints. For the Flex-On trial you will receive a pair of their Green Composite Stirrups to ride in for the week. If you decide you like them choose between three different models to buy: the Hunter Stirrup, the Aluminum Stirrup, and the Green Composite Stirrup.
The Tech Stirrups, on the other hand, have a cutting edge design and are incredibly lightweight. Their aggressive grip will keep your foot in place under any weather or footing conditions. Choose their Plus line for extra shock absorption. For the Tech Stirrup trial you will receive either a pair of their Athena or Athena Plus Stirrups at your choice to ride in for the week. If you love them pick one of several different models to buy: the Diana Hunter Stirrup, the Aphrodite Dressage Stirrup, and the The Athena Jumper Stirrup; all with or without added shock absorbers.
Come in to get the trial pair, we are here to help every day!
