    Are you serious? The whole idea for MAGNETS IN YOUR STIRRUPS is preposterous. If you think you need magnets in your stirrups then maybe you need to examine your riding. I am not a professional but I also don't need magnets in my stirrups to ride. And when I do, will I buy magnet stirrups? Nope. I will buy riding lessons to hone my skills

    I am confused, so are the magnets in the stirrups to hold your feet in? But wouldn't you need magnets in your boots to make that work?
    Or are they like the Back on Track stuff, just increasing blood flow using magnets?

    They have boots with the magnets already in them or slip on footies that go over your boot with the magnets

    Wow. I should invent a saddle with a Velcro seat and a pair of pants that has the other part of the Velcro on them.

If I had left him I doubt he would have left that property and would have suffered far more and since he is young he had even less of a chance with them having min info on him. I knew fully well I might have to sell him and move on but I bettered him and gave him more of a chance at a good home and being comfortable.
    Then he was considered and not treated poorly.

    There are many instances when a neglected horse's home/owners change, but the consideration given/action taken concerning the horse's needs/future/self does not.

    Yeah, I am serious.
    Actually they are designed to keep your foot in the correct angle in the stirrup, they do add some degree of 'stickability' for a persons foot....but they in no way are a 'cop out' or for 'lazy people' as insinuated.....If you're going to fall off, your going to fall off.....they remind me of those high end stirrup treads that match the sole of a riding boot so the foot 'sticks' better.....not something I would use but I'm not going to judge someone or look down my nose at them for using them.
