I had a close call Sunday when out riding with my friend. Oh my: we thought we were heading up the mountain on a little snow, but the snow turned out to have a thick layer of ice under it. All of a sudden my wonderful horse Gabriel slipped and fell down on his right side. Luckily I was able to see the whole thing happening in slow motion and quickly and easily got my foot out of my EZ Ride stirrups, pushed myself out of the way and got the stirrup out of the way for his landing. Thank goodness that my EZ Ride stirrups are easy to release my foot even in the big muck boots I was wearing. I’ve always known EZ Ride stirrups to be very comfortable on my knee and back but now they saved me from getting my leg smashed under Gabriel in the fall. Please check them out in our store and see if they are right for you. You never know when accidents can happen. And watch out for that snow and mud that can hide ice beneath it at this time of year!
