I find my (non-safety) stirrups easier to get out of...
Hmm, maybe it's just a personal preference. -shrugs-
Half the time, is better the Zero.

The main issue, they only have to work 1 time

I know of someone who was caught in their stirrups, it was not pretty, not life threatening , no broken bones, but not pretty.

Safety stirrups have worked EVERYTIME for myseld, my daughter (only fallen twice so far, thank goodness), and everyone else I have know that has had a fall with them. If they don't work, then you are riding with a stirrup that is too small for your foot. If you wear a size 5-8 ladies shoe, you should be in a 4 3/4" or larger stirrup. If you wear a size 8.5 or above, you should be in a 5" stirrup. 4.5" stirrups should only be used by children or very petite adults/teens.

I use and like the middle stirrups. (Mountain Horse Quick Release Stirrups) But the last ones are fine as well.
