THE RIDER IN BALANCE STEEL BALANCE STIRRUP
Balance is key in our riding – it is something that challenges us all from the elite rider to us normal human beings. Some of us may be aware of the challenge and try to correct ourselves but it is difficult for our brains to solve the problem.
The RIB stirrups will help us dramatically in one of the key areas for achieving balance.
The specially designed, patented RiB-stirrup improves your leg position and balance. The adjustable angle on the foot plate will give you maximum foot support and control, placing your leg softly and quietly around the horse, releasing your knees and allowing you effective leg use of our legs.
The stirrup can be used with ordinary stirrup leathers (max. width 26mm), you will also need approximately 16-18 cm longer leathers than with a standard stirrup. The method that the leather is running through the head of the stirrup allows you to adjust the angle of the foot plate to your individual preference.
A unique safety release arm is made of soft PU-material, allowing the foot to slip free in case of an accident by bending out and releasing from the steel.
RiB stirrups come with separate cover bags that will protect both stirrups and saddle from scratching. We recommend that you use the stirrup covers when you store your stirrups between rides
