Kvall Stirrups Safety Flexi Endurance Balance K'Vall 40 - 42 | eBay


I feel like there would be some danger to these but I bet they would be the comfiest long distance stirrups in the world.

While I think that is a fascinating concept, I just imagine myself trying to dismount at mile 92 and not being able to figure out how to remove my foot in that braindead state.. and landing flat on my back with my leg sticking straight up still in the stirrup (and Dream looking back/down at me like I am an idiot).

That's really cool, would be especially good for people with handicaps that may have trouble keeping their feet in the stirrup.

Yea, they look great for Endurance! I probably wouldn't use them to jump though. You'd probably end up relying on them, which isn't good, and I just see them being way too dangerous. Sure, it will save you in places, like they show in the pictures, but what about the other spots where you are just going to fall off, and you can't get your stirrups out? I'd have to have some sort of breakaway feature, just in case. Otherwise, very cool :) Wonder if they are show legal?

I can't see them being legal to show in..lol.
But, my BO's son needs them, because he refuses to keep his stirrups and always kicks his feet out as soon as he gets in the ring, his mum HATES it, lol.

They look like you could get trapped on your horse. If you fell off and the horse ran, you could get dragged to death. As long as you stayed on the horse, they would be great.

I just looked at it again. They are supposed to have a safety release feature.

That would be great but I am with Dawn and Celeste. It could potentially be a safety issue. If they gave away in a crisis that would be terrific for long rides.

If the emergency release on these really works reliably every time then these may be nice for arena riding. I know ski bindings don't always release and tore ligaments in my knee years ago because of it. If I had been on a horse instead of ski's and my foot was stuck I could have had lots bigger problems than a torn up knee.

Almost all of my riding is done in rough country where these would be a disaster. Limbs and brush could very easily get caught in between the stirrup leathers. Also stepping over logs and up and down ledges a horse could get its back foot in there as well which could cause real problems.

My other thought would be if your foot did come out of the stirrup somehow your leg could easily get caught between the leathers.
