How strong is the magnetic connection?

Simon Geldner Updated by Simon Geldner

The magnetic strength with which the Ophena stirrups will attract your boots is strong enough to keep the stirrups at your boots - even during jumps - but just so strong that you never have to worry about getting caught in case of a fall.

It's good to know that the magnetic connection varies slightly with the thickness of your riding boots' soles. The thinner the sole, the more powerful the magnetic connection and vice versa.

If you have thin-soled competition riding boots, you will have a stronger connection compared to thick winter-boots. Either way, the magnetic connection works well even in those thick boots - thousands of riders with a variety of boots are very happy with our stirrups. On top of that, we also offer our stronger Plus insoles.

How did we do?

Do I need special riding boots?

Are magnetic fields dangerous for me or my horse?
