JT intern. EZ out stirrup!
2 weeks ago I purchased a pair of these "safety" stirrups right before leaving for a week long vacation. I knew we were doing some rugged riding and with a somewhat new horse I felt the need...Used them for about 2 hours one day & 4 hours the next day I went to mount my horse the stirrup BROKE I fell back hitting the rocks and slid under my horse. If he had stepped on me, bolted or I had hit my head, fallen down the hill OMG. They did not break away they broke in half. Hurt like you know what and I was only 2 days into my riding, not to mention the 4 hour ride back to camp mostly down hill with no stirrup to use. Now back to the camp, no extra stirrups! After showing them to MANY other riders called JT international they said I would get a refund (duh) and would send me new stirrups to the camp in the middle of nowhere... walked around until I found a camper with extra stirrups to use unfortuantly they were only they a few more days. By the day 3 of the fall I was so sore couldnt ride and I am still feeling it! My husband looked at them and said Extruded piece of S#*T...he said if they dont get extruded just right they are weak.
