Everything on Smart Attach™, Ophena's Stirrup Attachment System.

Nicholas Hirschmann Updated by Nicholas Hirschmann

Ophena’s patented double-arm architecture with Smart Attach™ locking mechanism allows the magnetic stirrups to be attached and detached quicker than ever before. There is no need to fully remove the leather from the saddle since the metal buckle can fit through the opening of the arms.

This provides several advantages:

  • Time saving
  • Easy to transfer one Ophena in between different saddles
  • Keep the stirrup leather to the saddle and thus 
  • preserve the stirrup leather
  • preserve the saddle 

It works with any common stirrup leather. And it will lock itself against the saddle.

Assembly Step by Step (see pictures below)

  1. Pass the stirrup leather's metal buckle through Ophena's arms.
  2. Guide stirrup leather upwards through the smart-rib.
  3. Ophena is in place. Finish passing the leather and buckle it as usual.
  4. DONE. If you need, Ophena will easily lock itself against the saddle. 

How did we do?

Is there a left and a right stirrup or are they interchangeable?
