Wow! Never have this happen before! Stirrup technology has improved drastically since these were designed. Maybe it’s time to upgrade your stirrups as often as your helmet? Thanks for the share cousin Carolyn!
So this happened this afternoon as I was landing from a jump on the Hunter Pace course. Needless to say I cut my ride short. I cut the rubber off to see what happened. While the stirrups themselves are satinless steel, the small hinges obviously aren't. Yes these are old stirrups, but I had no idea. So just a heads up, if you have these kind of stirrups, be careful, they don't last forever.
I've been wanting to get the new high tech breakway stirrups, but his wasn't what I had in mind. I guess now is the time to order them.
