My daughter has recently got some freejumps and leathers, I still use normal safety stirrups, she very nearly bought tech stirrups, we got ours from a local saddlery/country store so unsure online, think hope saddlery online is reasonably priced. x

i know a fair few people who have them and really love them for the way they feel. Ive also heard one too many stories about how they don’t release the foot in a fall the way they are marketed to do so for that reason I wouldn’t use them.

LOVE them. I have adult sized black ones and wouldn't be without them. My youngest daughter has kid ones and she's fallen off more times than I can count (last week being the latest time when she got totally left behind and dragged over a little X pole and hit the deck lol) and they have released her feet every time. They help her foot position too.

I have heard stuff like that too and yes, it worries me but I have seen an absolutely horrific drag situation with a set of peacock stirrups and also a girl got her foot caught in the bent leg ones. I think all stirrups carry a risk really. I just try and make sure my foot is in the correct position and encourage the kids to do the same. :) xx

How do you all feel about these stirrups compared to the Sprenger Bow Balance? I'm borrowing the Sprenger and love it but I've heard great things about the free jumps and can't decide which to buy!? Does anyone have experience with both of them and which would you choose?
