Breakaway Stirrup

Horses April 15, 2013 Print Friendly and PDF

A breakaway stirrup is designed for an easier release of the foot should you fall from the saddle.

One type of breakaway stirrup uses a heavy rubber band instead of a solid metal bar on the outside of the stirrup iron.

Breakaway stirrups are an option for beginners and young riders.
