Interesting. Thanks! I've seen before on trails, but I always thought it's just for rider to look cool. Stupid me! :)

I am a fan of tapederos. As far as safety stirrups? Those scare me and for a good reason. My friend was riding one and her horse on the trail and she spooked and did a kind of running buck and for some ungodly reason the stirrups released and she went flying off her horse and was injured.

Since that happened I've been freaked out by the, as for tapederos? They're my best friend next to my horse of course.

Hooded stirrups

If you want to save money and still get the protection of tapederos then just look up "hooded Stirrups". You can get quality ones starting at about $35 (US) and up. I use some that I got from a Canadian outfitter. They come in neck sizes from 1 to 3 inches and work well on western saddles. They also come in about four or five colors.

Hope this is of some help.

I think they are good for maybe the trails, because if you were to fall off you wouldn't get dragged & cut on branches or bushes lol.

These are not as authentic western-looking or as cool as the tapaderos that Vidaloco posted, but EZ Ride stirrups with a cage work well too. http://loristack.com/ez.htm

Western Safety Stirrups:
I am amazed that none of you have heard of the "Sidestep Safety Stirrups". They are the only stirrups that has ever been designed with so many safety and comfort features rolled into one without break-a-way parts. These are awsome for long hours in the saddle, especially for trail riding. They are being sold for $50 off regular price right now.
Type "Sidestep Safety Stirrups" in your search engine, and it will take right to them. If you try these out for a couple of weeks, you will never go to another stirrup.

I personally wouldn't like something like yall are mentioning. That seems way too bulky for me.

In my stirrups(on my barrel saddle) there is this squishy part on the part of the stirrup where you put your foot, and it keeps my feet in the same position when I am running barrels. It is barely noticeable until you lift up your foot and see that little black thing there.

I don't know if this is helpful, BUT I thought I would post anyways.
