The SmartRider Escape Breakaway Stirrup is the first ever two part stirrup that disengages setting the rider free when in a position of danger.
SmartRider ‘Escape’ Breakaway Stirrup provides a SAFER alternative to standard Western stirrups. Designed to actively disengage and release the rider’s foot by breaking away as the foot rotates backwards, releasing the stirrup and reducing the risk of injury. Made from a high tech light weight material and available in an array of colours, the ‘Escape’ stirrups are practical, durable and add confidence to the rider knowing that you have a greater chance of your foot being released if you fall from your horse.
The ‘Escape’ innovative design also doubles as a stirrup extender for those who need that little extra help mounting and can be accessorized with leather side covers for a more “authentic” Western stirrup look.
The ‘Escape’ is currently in use by the New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria Mounted Police forces..
This stirrup can greatly reduce injuries and deaths from rider draggings. Riders that have purchased the breakaway stirrups have not regretted their decision.
Be Smart, Not Sorry.
