OH! I have those!!! I got them because last year schooling CC a few days before my event.
I was schooling over the Trak and I rode it totally all wrong, causing Nelson to jump forward, then at an angle *if the red flag was up, we'd of taken it down* and during that pop, I was launched up into the air, my right leg crossed over my left leg and when we landed, my left foot was still in the iron.
I landed on my right leg, crossed infront of my left, with my left foot still in the iron, I spun around to be better balanced, I went to grab the saddle - and doing that caused Nelson to spook. He started to side step away from me leaving me to hop towards him with my one free leg - he then trotted off, I went with him, dragging.
If it weren't for all the volunteers there that day preparing the course for the comp - I'd of been drug back to the barn - so I got those irons that day. LOVE THEM!
Allot of the fox hunters have them as well. I wont ride without them now :) No matter how experienced you are, you never know what will nor can happen. Better to be safe than sorry.
